2017 NZ skill changes
Hi All

I am Piraba Nagkeeran from Sri Lanka. I am a software engineer and I have 6 years experience and got married and he has B.Sc degree and my husband also work as a Network engineer.

I would like to get more detail about new skill migration changes. I'm trying to get my head around the new changes.

New changes

I need to clarify that about if I have the master degree, then will they check experience after completing the degree or after completing the master? I completed a master in 2016.

I completed BCS (British Computer Society) PGD(Professional Graduate Diloma) in 2011

will I get 160 points?

Sorry not going to be able to clarify much.
You would need to discuss them with the Immigration department that covers Sri Lanka

I can tell you that Sri Lanka is not on the list for comparable labour markets so you may not be able to claim points for experience unless it was within a global company.

Comparable labour market - New Zealand Immigration Service
