Post VISA QUESTIONS UK TO NZ - JOB OFFER

Hello!

I hope you can help, from what I have read you all seem to give honest and compelling advice - of which I am in desperate need!



I am 28 and live in the NW England with my partner of 10 years, who is 32.

I have a job offer from the skills shortage list and due to start 14th August. Now my partner can't apply for the WHV as he's too old. What Visa can he apply for?

My employers (new) discussed getting me across on a WHV then 12 months later I can apply for residency.

The job is in Auckland and we would prefer to come over together

Please help!
Thanks- Jessica

Hi Jessica and welcome to BE
at the moment he can apply off the back of your visa, I would suggest getting the EOI and your ITA started as long as you have 160 points or over, as quickly as possible as the rules change in August when he would then have to apply for his own separate visa and unless he can get 160 points or over he would not gain a visa.
