Default NZ Corrections clarification

Right off the bat I'll clarify things.

https://www.corrections.govt.nz/care..._officer2.html

You need get a 24 month work visa, not PR not citizenship to be eligible.

If you have enough experience education and meet the other requirements then there's no reason NZ immigration won't issue a 24 month working visa to come work NZ corrections.

You can't join the NZ police unless you've got PR.

You can't join the Australian police unless you've got PR.

You can only join the Canadian police unless you have PR AND YOU'VE LIVED IN CANADA A MINIMUM OF 3 YEARS.

that has just come in.

US police you have to already be a legal PR too.

So the above is an outstanding oppo for any hardworking righteous people looking to make a fresh start.

I'm not being cynical I'm not being smug I'm presenting facts as they stand.

Only some Canadian forces require 3 year in country before applying.

Any police officer can apply for express entry PR if they have enough points though education or work experience.

You need to change this bit. A person from overseas can apply for a position. If they succeed and gain a job offer then they apply for the work visa.
It is always job offer first and then apply work visa.

If you have enough experience education and meet the other requirements then there's no reason NZ immigration won't issue a 24 month working visa to come work NZ corrections.
This bit is fine.

Nairobi Jack is not in New Zealand but I am.

Please come to the New Zealand forum to ask about this. <---- click the link

We do have one or two correction officers that I can ping who may be able to guide you in this.

Default Re: NZ Corrections clarification

I can clarify as best I can about NZ corrections.
My misses works for correction as prison guard.

We moved to NZ on my work visa. which was a work to residence for me and open work visa for my wife. We both had visas for 30 months on arrival.

My wife applied for the job in the UK as we already had our visas in place.
Then we moved she done her interviews and tests and started the job a month later.

They won't look at or accept your application unless you have a 24 month visa before you apply. There lots of my wifes friends at work are all the same. They come over on there partners visa and applied for the job when already in country.

They were accepting applications from overseas a few years ago but it was for experienced corrections officers. Again my wife works with a few of them that moved doing that route.

You can't apply at all.
Well you can apply but you won't get a job offer unless you have a minimuim 24 months visa before you apply.

Can you expand and clarify on this please.

You cannot have a 24 month visa without a job offer for somewhere somehow with an NZ employer

Are you saying that only those that are partners of those with a work visa in place for a job offer and so gained an open work visa under the family category can apply for Corrections?

With or without experience? The key for me here being with or without experience , especially without & that those persons were not NZ resident visa wise at the time. Their partners being employed in other occupations.

Thank you.

No I'm not saying you have to be on a partner visa.
You need a open work visa for at least 24 months before applying or your application won't go past the intial vetting stage as it doesn't meet the entry requirements of having a minimuim of 24 months visa before applying.
You won't get offered any type of employment unless the visa requirements are meet before hand.

That's why I'm saying most of my wifes friends are on WTR partner visa which are 30 months open visas. A very high % of staff are not NZ citizens and are foreigners but all have visas in place before hand.

Another big stumbling block is. The job does not meet the minimum wage requirements to be offered a work to residence visa as its below the 55k initial starting salary when going through the 3 months training package.

With or without experience.
They had a big recruitment drive a few years ago maybe 2016 and went over to the UK to recruit.
Went round the UK prisons done interview and brought some boys n girls over on work to residence visa. At the moment they aren't doing it. Things might change in the near future as they are really short on officers at minute and can't seem to get officers recruited and stick the job out.
