    Default Do you think They will issue me visa

    I have applied for residence visa through SMC, I have been assign a visa offer who told me that my doccuments are being verrfied now.

    But my problem is that I do not have job offer as an Electrician in NZ. EWRB of NZ has issued me with approval for provissional lisence. I have the required work experience that is not from NZ. I have also the recognise qualification. I have submitted all other needed documents, medical, police report and others.

    I have also applied for jobs and included my visa status in my cover letter, without any positive response from employer in NZ. Some recruiters reply to notify me that my application could only be considered when I am in New zealand.

    Do you think NZ immigration will issue visa since I do not have job offer.

    Hoping to hear from you.

    If you don't have a job offer, it could be that INZ will first offer you a Work to Residence visa instead of residency. This visa will give you the opportunity to get to NZ, look for work and stay in that position for at least 3 months, after which time you will be able to get your residency. They do this so you can prove you are able to settle there.

    It often happens that companies in NZ prefer to see potential employees face to face. For one thing, they appreciate the fact that you have made the commitment to travel to NZ. It can be very difficult to find a job offer while you are still outside the country, so a lot of people start their job search when they are in NZ.
