    Default help what do i do

    Hi, I came to NZ on a visitor visa to visit family, and while i was here decided to see what the job situation is like here. I spoke to an agency who put me forward for a job, I explained my situation and they understand and will supply a letter of intent should I be succesful. I have now been invited back for the 2nd and final interview after that is reference and security check. my question is i have not done the expression of interest or anything to start my application. does anyone know what i need to do to get a work visa? and what the process is?

    The quickest option for you would be to apply for a work visa but, as you may already know, you need to have a job offer. However, the job needs to be skilled and one that a kiwi can't be found to do. Take a look through this as it explains more about it. Another option, if you have immediate family in NZ, is for them to sponsor you for residency for which you would also need a job offer but, unfortunately, I would imagine this would take longer than applying for a work visa. There are some further work visa-related links in here.
