Default can apply for jobs during visa application (last step)?

Hi All,

Yes you can apply for jobs whilst your application is being processed. If you manage to gain a job offer you need to contact NZIS and inform them of the offer so that they can speed up your application. When you say you are at the last step do you mean that you have received and sent back an ITA?

I'm not sure what you mean by letting the employer know that an application is in process. Would you not just write that in your covering letter along with your CV. Does Australia have some way that employers can check that an application has been sent in, is that what you mean? As far as I know NZ does not offer this.

Thanks Persephone,

I received ITA and preparing to sent back.

Yes Aus has database and offer applicatns to put your resume when case lodge in DIAC so the employers can pick you from que, it isn't like a normal job sites basically it is a special repository for this purpose.

looks like NZ doens't have such repository.

Thanks
