Hi,

Presently, I get a job offer from a meat industry and i get the employer supplementary form, so I can apply for a temporary work visa.

I am very worried if i applying and get a refused from immigration because of (off period)..

today, I met an immigration advisor he told me that in off period you can apply to a visitor visa and at the same time he told me "you should't tell them the truth story"

Misleading immigration runs the risk of undoing ANY visa you get, inc PR at ANY time in the future. Foolish agent (but its not his risk). Foolish you if you take his advice IMHO.

Agree with the others, misleading immigration is not a good idea. I'm not quite sure how you are intending to do that. They will know if you apply for a SF practical experience visa or work visa and a visitor visa at the same time and that should set alarm bells ringing. Is that what you are intending to do?

If I were you I'd be desperately looking for and taking a job anywhere in NZ that fitted the necessary criteria.
Good luck!
