What is considered Skilled Occupation
NZ Immigration Specialist

UntitledIf your occupation is on this list it means that you are eligible to apply for a resident visa under theĀ Skilled Migrant Category. This is a points-based visa that considers factors such as age, work experience, your qualifications and an offer of skilled employment.

To apply under the Skilled Migrant Category you must be aged 55 or under, meet the skill level for your occupation, and meet English language, health, and character requirements.
