    Default Selected but have ?'s

    We submitted our EOI about a month ago with 145 points and got selected. But now after the checks, we have been told that my job as an Accounts Admin is not valid for the points claimed. So neither is my Accounting Qual. (Which has already been assessed by NZQA at Level 5).

    Is there another way to get residency?
    How do we go round this?

    We all love Wellington and do not want to leave.

    I don't know if you could get in via the Essential Skills Policy.

    It seems to boil down to whether there would be a kiwi who could do your job instead. Had you been at managerial level, you would probably have stood a better chance of getting in. Major group 5 is the lowest group that is accepted so it might be worth trying that and working your way to residency. However, as I mentioned above, it could be down to INZ checking whether a kiwi can be found to do the job.

    Good luck.

    Under the old Temporary Work Policy the principal applicant's immediate family could get visas 'appropriate to their needs' off the principal's back. I would assume it would be the same with the new policy.
