    Hi, welcome.

    You would need a job offer to be able to apply for a work visa and it would need to be for a skilled job or one that an employer couldn't find a kiwi to do it.

    i have 2 job offers for a SAP functional analyst. should i apply for work permit or request that my PR be processed quickly. How long does each take to be processed? I fall under the IT category but I dont know if the employer can prove whether im more qualified then a kiwi.

    My understanding is that applications associated with a job offer are accelerated and that you can be moved from the slow stream to the fast stream if you tell INZ you have a job offer. Unfortunately, no one can tell you how quickly your application will be processed because there are too many variables.

    I have heard of people getting both work permits and PR turned around in a matter of days but it depends on all the circumstances associated with the application.
