This visa allows you to reside, engage in employment, and pursue education within New Zealand. You have the option to include your spouse or partner, as well as any dependent children below the age of 24, in your application for permanent residency.

Important points to consider:

We evaluate expressions of interest using a points-based system.

Expressions of interest with 180 points or more will be chosen.
