Default Query regarding Salary Requirement for SMC

Can anyone tell what is the minimum salary requirement for meeting the criterion of skilled migrant category? Is this profession dependent? I was unable to find anything regarding that on NZ immigration website. Thanks...

For the work to residency its $55K, and for the skilled migrant its a lot less - not sure on the actual amount (although it is written somewhere), but I remember thinkning its so low if you are on that you wouldnt survive anyway!!!

You mean that if someone gets a skilled job and then apply for PR directly, there is no specific level of salary for his/her PR to meet the criterion of that?

One of my friend came on Work To Residence and got an offer of employment for 38000$, but he told me that immi advise him that he have to have an offer minimum 45K. (he was an accountant)

I was also looking for that information on immi site but couldn't found any thing related to that.

Is there any criteria set by immigration for minimum earning for a full time offer in IT to claim points for current employment / offer of employment.

found this:

Long Term Skilled Shortage List Policy (LTSSL) and Talent (Accredited Employer) Policy

Successful applicants must be 55 years of age or under and meet the necessary requirements in order to qualify under LTSSL and Talent Policy. Occupational registration requirements must be valid and the applicant must work for an accredited employer for at least 24 months. INZ has a minimum base salary requirement of $55,000 per annum depending on the date the Talent Work Visa/Permit was lodged.

On here:

Not sure if its the same thing so you may have to ring NZ House and ask them to clarify

The $55 applies to the WTR visa, and not to permanent residency gained through employment. The following I found on the internet:

If you are applying for a Temporary Work Visa/Permit or Permanent Residency through the Skilled Migrant Category, there is no minimum salary required. However, your salary or base salary must be at least equal to the minimum New Zealand wage and cannot be purely commission based. It also must be a minimum of 30 hours a week.

Hope this clarifies things.
