This visa is for people who have skills that will contribute to New Zealand's economic growth. You will need to send an expression of interest (EOI), that details your work experience and qualifications.
The Skill Migrant Category Visa or SMC resident visa uses a points system with factors such as age, qualifications, work experience, family connection, and a skilled employment offer as the basis. You must also be 55 years old or younger, and pass all requirements regarding the English language, health, and character to be eligible for this type of visa.
Under this type of visa, an applicant can include their partner, and dependent children who are 24 years of age and under, in their residence application.
Before applying, an Expression of Interest (EOI) must be sent to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) informing them about your qualifications, work experience and capacity to contribute and settle to New Zealand.
This will be scored by INZ and if it attains more than one hundred eighty (180) points, that is when they will offer you a chance to submit a residence application.
