    Default What visa?

    Hi all. Does anyone know what visa options there are for a person aiming for residency but without a job offer?

    Is it possible to get some kind of work permit or longer visa before entering NZ (apart from WHV) without a job offer? I`ve checked NZIS website but from what I`ve read it doesn`t seem likely, is a tourist visa the only option?

    Hi,

    Visitors visa is the most common type if you are not eligible for residency. You can't get any work permits unless you have a job or are sponsored by an eligible partner for an open work permit. Any other long term visas are generally specialist categories or business visas.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
