    Default Comparable Labour Market

    Hi again

    I'm living in Iran and I have more than 10 years work experience in IT. My qualification is listed under NZ recognised qualifications.
    In the definition of "Recognised Work Experience" it is mentioned that

    "If you do not have current skilled employment or an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand, your work experience must have been gained in a comparable labour market in order for you to claim points."

    As my work experience is not happened in NZ or other countries listed in the definition of "Comparable Labour Market", how could I claim for points for my work experience ?

    Bellow is the definition of "Comparable Labour Market":

    ------------
    Summary of Terms

    Comparable labour market

    A labour market is the commercial environment in which people exchange their work for income and where employers and workers ‘trade’ on the demand for, and supply of, skills. If you do not have skilled employment or an offer of skilled employment, your work experience must have been gained in a comparable labour market in order for you to claim points.

    It sounds like you can't claim for your work experience . If you haven't already got enough points to submit an EOI without the work experience points, I wonder if going via the WTR route and working for 2 years in NZ to gain NZ experience would be the way around it. Either that or try to get a job offer as you shouldn't need to claim for work experience then.

    Default Recognised work experience in Non-Comparable Labour Market

    Hi

    I found an answer to my question about recognised work experience in non-comparable labour market and not NZ employment:

    in EOI form it is mentioned that your work experience is recognised if:

    1- current skilled employment in NZ, or
    2- you have an offer of employment, or
    3- it is in a comparable labour market, or
    4- it is in an area of absolute skill shortage :)

    fortunately my work experience is in area of absolute skill shortage.

    I'm still interested to know more about WTR roadmap.

    This diagram shows you how the WTR works.

    If you look at the bottom of this page it gives you links for applying under the WTR category. You just need to choose which one applies to you.

    Good news that your skills are on the absolute skill shortage list.
