Work to Residence Visa
If you are planning to come to New Zealand for work, you must know that New Zealand offers a wide range of work visas. All of them are temporary work visas in essence, but a few of them can lead to residency.
There are many ways to land up in New Zealand for work. If your skills, qualifications, and experiences match the requirements that are listed on the Long Term Skills shortage list, you can apply for a Long Term Skills Shortage List Work Visa. Another way to join the New Zealand job markets is by working for a New Zealand Accredited Employer.
Accredited Employer work visa has a clear pathway to residency. For other temporary work visas, there is no direct path for grant of residency. However, there is a points-based system, and if you are a skilled employee, your chances of getting a residency increase significantly.
