    Hi Karat,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Well done you on getting offered a job! You must be thrilled.

    So onto your PR application. I am pretty sure you wont get automatically invited to apply for PR on 110 points. You have to have 140 at the moment to get an automatic invitation to apply.

    But I do know that friends of mine who only reached 100points on the Skilled Migrant Cat applied for their EOI in Jan and just got their ITA this month so you do have a good chance of getting in on 110, so dont worry about that one.

    I'm not too sure if your occupation is on the list or not you'd need to check this out on the Immi Site. I would do this but I am just running out of the office shortly.

    Hopefully you can find your info on the immi site.

    Good luck!

    Hi Karatt and welcome, again.

    Would your job title of Corrections Officer be similar to Prison Officer? If so, we've had a couple of people on here before who were applying in this situation. I know one got his PR but we lost touch with the other one just after the first one moved on. I think Prison Officer or similar is on the skills shortages list, so you should be OK. The NZIS pages concerning the skills list is down at my end so I can't check at the moment.

    As Amy says, you need 140 points for automatic acceptance at the moment, but you should have no problems applying with less. It just may take a bit longer. Having a job offer sometimes helps to oil the wheels, so things might go more quickly for you. Does the 110 points include your job offer and experience?

    From what I can see on the NZIS site you can apply under the skilled migrant category with 110 points, but you do not come under a category of absolute skill shortages, so cannot claim extra points for this. From the statistics on the government site, it looks like they accepted 33 migrants under the Prison Officer category in 2006/07 year and 96 in 2005/6 year. So, it looks like you would have a good chance of being approved for ITA from your EOI.

    Hope this helps a little...
