Enjoy New Zealand's Excellent Working Conditions Forever

New Zealand offers excellent working conditions by enforcing a wide range of fair employment laws. The working environment motivates you to deliver your best without worrying about any discrimination or harassment in your workplace. All this can be yours forever if you get one of the two Work to Residence Visas – Long Term Skill Shortage List Work Visa or Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa. Both the visas have different qualification criteria and visa process – Our Auckland based immigration experts can help you along the way.

Visa Types

You may qualify for a Long Term Skill Shortage List Work Visa if you can fill the job requirements of an occupation listed in the New Zealand Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL). LTSSL maintains a list of occupations that New Zealand and other countries are struggling to fill due to a persistent shortage of qualified workers.
You will need a job offer and convince INZ that you satisfy the qualifications and have the experience required for the job. Professional Visa Solutions can take care of creating your foolproof visa application.
Long Term Skill Shortage List Work Visa
You may apply for a Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa if you have a full-time job offer from an accredited New Zealand employer and you satisfy the skill requirements for the position. This Work to Residence Visa category also allows you to apply for New Zealand residence once you have met specific conditions of your work visa.
There are certain caveats to ensuring the “Accreditation” part before you get the visa and during your employment. Our Auckland based team of immigration experts is going to hold your hand throughout the process.

The Wait for Residency

How long do you have to be on a Work to Residence Visa before becoming eligible for residence status under the Residence from Work category? Just 2 years is all it takes – you have to be working in New Zealand on a Work to Residence Visa for this period and satisfy the specific visa terms to qualify for residency status.
You will need to submit records to establish your employment details and provide evidence that you did not breach any terms of your visa. It may get a little overwhelming to put all the supporting documents together, but it is worth the effort. You can count on us to assist you in the best possible manner in your Work to Residence Visa journey.
