Eligibility for the right visa is based on factors such as whether your skills match a shortage in New Zealand, how long you want to stay, and your age, work experience and qualifications.
Tips before applying for a visa
- Find out if your job skills are in demand.
- Provide all the information required – incomplete paperwork will cause delays.
- If you’re not sure of the visa application process, consider using a licensed immigration advisor.
- If you want to visit Auckland for a holiday first to see what our city is like, you might need a visitor visa. However, travellers from more than 50 countries do not require a visa for a stay of less than three months – check your passport and visa requirements here.
