Hi,

Please can you help!!
I am looking at New Zealand but a little lost
If I am offered employment which is on the LTSSL how long could the process take to receiving residence visa`s?
How long to receive work to residence permit.This is something i am not too keen on as I have 3 children in education, and who is to say that my occupation will still be on the LTSSL in 2 years time,if it`s not we shall have to pack our bags.Please tell me if I am wrong on this matter.
Once submitted EOI how long to hear from them?
Sorry for the questions but I need some answers.

Thanks in advance

It depends. Have you checked to see how many points you have? If you have at least 140 points and a job offer you need to bung in your Expression of Interest (EOI) and you will get selected straightaway from the fortnightly draws (if all checks out OK). Then you should shortly receive your Invitation to Apply (ITA). You will need to provide documents and evidence to support your claims on your EOI along with medicals and police clearances. How long all of this takes often depends on how well you are organised and how much you have prepared the necessary documents.

If you are LTSSL, go for PR. Why muck around with WTR unless it is the only way in.

Hi,


Thank you for the info.

If all paper work is sorted and the application is straight forward what is roughly the time frame.

The next draw is 26 September, so if you bung in your EOI before then and you have enough points and a job offer you should get selected straightaway.
You would probably have the ITA land with a thump within a month I'd think (assuming everything is checked out OK). If you have all your medicals, police clearances, qualifications and supporting documents already sorted you can submit right away and then spend maybe a week to god knows when for NZIS to make a decision.
You sound like you are chomping at the bit and are raring to get on with it.
