This would be the number that you use for tax purposes. In the USA it is known as a social security number. Here in New Zealand it is the Internal Revenue Department (IRD) number. I don't know what you call your tax number in the UK.

You write in the form what you have just written here. However, be sure to capitalise the letter E in English.

Put you National Insurance number, and a tax office reference if you have one on your payslip.

English language - state that any qualifications were taken in the English language.

Good luck

Hi there,

I sent my EOI in December, now selected and waiting for an ITA now.

For social security number I put down my National Insurance number. For tax number I put down the tax reference number from my PAYE tax coding notice. No one has been in contact to say that is wrong ...yet!

I found the English speaking abililty a bit odd to do as well, after all how to you prove you can do something you've done all your life and is as natural as eating and walking etc
Ended up writing something about being born in the UK to English speaking parents and that all my education was in English, after all I had put in another section of the form about the fact I'd lived here all my life!

Unfortunately, can't help you with the other questions but hope someone else can.
Good luck

Sue

Hi,

You will find the social security and tax number questions are not highlighted as questions you need to answer. Therefore dont answer them. I left them blank and am now resident.

Good luck

That's exactly what I did. Our ITA is now progressing nicely.

It's fine to ask questions. We have all been there at some point asking the same types of questions.

You are a panel beater. Correct me if this is wrong.

Panel beating is on the Immediate Shortage List. It is also an occupation that requires an NZQA assessment.

To find out if your apprenticeship and qualifications will be counted as recognised you will need to apply to NZQA (please click the blue type) for an assessment.

You will want to see an NZ register level 4.

Yes. You can claim the points for a trade you do not intend to work in but I will say that your case would be made all the stronger for having a job offer in this field.

yes I am a Panel Beater but have no formal quallifications in this field as I gained my experience through a governement work experience training programme and have 14 years time served experience.I have a apprenticeship in Roof Tiling.This is why I wanted to know whether I could claim points for my qualification if i was not going to work as a Roofer.
If I get a job offer over the phone and wanted to go over and start work immeadiatly with my daughter ,what visa should I apply for?
Thanks
