    Default Working in New Zealand on Permanent Residency Bridging Visa in Australia

    Hi everyone!
    I need a quick advice. I am on General Skill Migration Permanent Residency Bridging visa in Australia. If I am offered a job in New Zealand, what are the options do I have? Will I also apply under Essential Skills program for temporary work visa? I have Electronics Engineering Degree from overseas which has been assessed by Engineers Australia to be equivalent to Professional Electronics Engineer and I also have Medicare Cover from the Aussie Government as I am on my path to PR in Australia.

    Good suggestions or information will be highly appreciated!

    Hmmm, if you had already got your Australian PR you could probably come straight into NZ as there is a reciprocal agreement between the two countries (although it only works one way - Oz to NZ and not the other way round). In your case, if you are still a long way from getting your PR and you got a job offer, the quickest way into NZ might be to apply for a temporary work visa. That would at least allow you to work and then you could start to process an application for residency at the same time.
