    Default Getting a Work Permit !!

    Hi,

    I have come to NZ this yr on a student visa. Initially thought of goin bck bt nw m in love wt the country. M definitely planin to wrk n stay here. I regularly visit this forum + nz immigration website. My question is =

    In oder to get a work permit, Do i need to have a job which is listed under the long term shortage skill + immediate skill shortage ? I knw after d student visa i have a option for an open work permit. I am talking after when d open work permit expires. If i do nt find a job which is under the these list wud my work permit application straightaway refused ?

    Motherbear need you input on it pls..

    To be able to apply for a temporary work permit, you would need to find a skilled job that a kiwi can't do. It doesn't have to be a job skill that is listed on one of the skill shortage lists but if it isn't, it would not lead you to PR unless it was with an accredited employer.
