Default Job offer but which visa???

Hey guys

I've been offered a job as a midwife in Auckland (ADHB). Was just wondering which visa I need!! I think I need a skilled work visa but wondering whether I could go over on a work visa (I'm 32 and have already had a working holiday visa). I'm so confused by the visa process but don't really have the budget to go through a migration consultant (have just enough for the skilled visa). I also need to be able to take my partner with me on my visa (we've been together for 8 years).
Hopefully there is someone out there who can help! It would be much appreciated!

Are you registered as a midwife in NZ?

If not then that should be your first concern.....it may take a while if you are eligible.

as long as the offer is from an accredited company then you would go for a work to residency visa, tied to that visa you would get a work visa for your OH and student visas for any children

Ring London, I found them very helpful and for theprice of a phone call may get your answers. My daughter went on a work to residency visa as a radiographer with a job offer at Middlemore Hospital and now works at North Shore, Auckland .

I don't mind at all, I have 140 points. I need to get out ASAP as they are holding the post for me and keen to get out. I think I'm eligible for the work to residence as ADHB is a accredited employer (although I'm dual trained midwifery isn't on the critical skills list). I would wait for residency but I don't mind going over then sorting it out when I'm there. I just booked my medical £439! In NZ I had to have a limited one and it was so much cheaper!

Least you have a plan lol. A wtr visa is just too uncertain for me moving with the wife and kids. 568 for 2 adult medicals near me 🙄

WTR is a good visa to be on, just means the process to Citizenship is longer, if that is your desire. You are on the WTR for 2 years and as long as you are still in appropriate work and meet the criteria you then change the visa to a PR one, you still have the same rights as everyone else on PR on the WTR. Then once you have been on the RV for 2 years, so in NZ for a total of 4 years, you then change that one to remove the travel conditions and again as long as you have met the criteria you apply for PRV which removes the travel conditions.
