Age 28
Bachelors: Computer Science
Masters : Computer Information Systems
No Education in NZ
IELTS : 6.5 ( combined in GT)
Spouse: None.
work Experience in different fields of IT: 6 yrs.

This is how I have selected the points for me:

Skilled Employment

1. Not living/Never lived in NZ, So the selection is NO.
2. Not living/Never lived in NZ, So the selection is NO.
3. No Job offer. Selection is NO.
4. (i) My Current work in my country is listed in NZ's Future growth areas. I have worked in different fields of Information Technology for the past 6 yrs in my home country. Selection should be YES or NO?

My confusion : Here, Has NZ Immigration asked for work experience/current work in this category in NZ or its fine if they were/are being performed in my home/another country.

4. (ii) All my previous and current jobs in my 'home country' are listed in the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL). [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]Selection should be YES or NO?[/color]

My confusion: Here, Has NZ Immigration asked for work experience/current work in this category in NZ or its fine if they were/are being performed in my home/another country.

5. Not Applicable as I am not living/never lived in NZ. Selection is NO.

Qualifications

1. Recognized qualification? (level 7 or 8): I got Masters, so Points are 55 in Level 9.
My Confusion: How to know/determine if my Masters degree is recognized or not? Should I apply for EOI and wait for the authority to ask me for assessment/recognition? Please clarify.

2. Do you have a recognised qualification? (level 3,4,5,6) -----What does it mean? I had my exams like this: High School Degree (12th class), Bachelors of 4 yrs in an University, 2 yrs Masters Degree. [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]SELECTION: YES ( still Confused)[/color]

3. Did you begin your study for level 3, 4, 5 or 6 recognised qualification on or before 24 July 2011?
What does it mean? [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]What should I select? [/color]

4. Do you have a recognised qualification? (level 3,4,5,6) -- Not sure what to select. Please suggest.

5. Do you have a bachelor’s degree gained in New Zealand following at least two years of full time study? Selection is NO.

6. NO
7. NO
8. (i) YES - but do they mean qualifications achieved in NZ or applicant's home country??
(ii) YES - but do they mean qualifications achieved in NZ or applicant's home country??
9. NO
10. NO

Relevant Work Experience

1. Number of years of relevant work experience (anywhere): 6 yrs.
2. Number of years of relevant work experience in New Zealand : NONE ( as I have never lived in NZ Before)
3. Number of years work experience in any one of New Zealand's:
(i) identified future growth areas ? : do they mean the work experience in New Zealand or anywhere in the world? Remember I have worked in the field of Information and Communication Technology and of course the future growth area has these fields, biotechnology, information communications technology, and creative industries. SELECTION: 6 yrs ( still confused)

(ii) areas of absolute skills shortage ?
These are listed on the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL). I have worked at least 3 of the occupations listed in Long Term Skill Shortage List (INZ 1093) PDF. but still in dilemma, have they asked for NZ's experience or experience outside NZ? Selection: 6 yrs ( still confused)

4. Was the work experience gained in a comparable labour market or an area of absolute skills shortage?
: Not in Labor Market but in an area of absolute skill shortage list outside NZ. So my SELECTION is: YES

Age : 20-29 yrs

Other Family : NONE

Partner : NONE



Please correct me if I am wrong.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
First of all you have to be sure that your diploma/degree will be accepted by the NZ commission. Then if you are sure about that you can easily asses your points.
What is the dilemma you have? In which part?
