    Default Claiming points under identified future growth area

    I have a question about claiming bonus points for work experience in an identified future growth area. It is mentioned clearly in the document.
    "You need to note that work experience in an identified future growth years area only qualifies for bonus points if you are also claiming points for current skilled employment or an offer of skilled employment in an identified future growth area."


    What exactly does current skilled employment mean ?
    I am a IT professional with no work experience in New Zealand and I do not have any offer letter .

    I had claimed bonus for under this category in ITA and I was assigned visa officer for a while and she had raised some concerns about my application ( but never about claiming points under this category).

    What's going on ? am I missing something ?

    Hi Sandhu,

    I think you will have to show them that you are currently working as an IT professional. I think this could mean any experience you have as an IT professional, it does not need to be work in NZ. Have you claimed points in your EOI for work in the IT sector. If so, you can claim points for these qualifications too.
