New Zealand Residence Programme 2009/10

Thursday, 2 July 2009


The New Zealand Residence Programme (NZRP) contains permanent residence goals set by Government to meet New Zealand’s ongoing skills requirements and humanitarian commitments. The number of places available to migrants for each year ending 30 June under the NZRP is reviewed by Cabinet each year.
For 2009/10 the NZRP is set at the same level as for 2008/09, 45,000 – 50,000 approved places. This includes:
  • the Skilled/Business stream (approximately 26,800 – 29,950 places)
  • [*]
  • [*]
  • Partner and Dependent Child policies of the Family Sponsored stream (uncapped, estimated to be about 9,900 – 10,700 places for planning purposes), and
  • [*]

Silly question, are the figures, number for applications or number of people.

If it is applications, i was just doing some math. They select about 750 applications in each drawing - i will go on the upper limit as 800 under SMC
i.e. 1600 applications a month (twice a month), which is 19200 applications a year. Now if there are only 19200 applications selected a year, how will they approve 25000 of them. I am not sure how many apply under business category, but i guess there wont be that many.

So basically even though the ministry has set the limit for applications approved to 25000 under SMC/Business INZ makes sure that it will never make it
