    [smilie=Welcome_2.gif] Juan,

    Well, there's always the Working Holiday Visa seeing as you're still under 30. Perhaps you could pick up some work in your industry while you're supposedly having a 'holiday' in NZ. ;)

    Default visas for freelances

    Hi there! A warm welcome to our forum!

    I search on the skilled migrant long term skill shortages and i cannot find either movie production or flim production. I was hoping to find that your skills are much needed in NZ but apparently it is not so. But I may be wrong and someone will correct me. I can only find flim animator and that seems to be more IT based (using software to create creative animations).

    However that said, as MotherBear mentioned, you can come on a WHV or better still, secure a job offer. I sure there are plenty in the movie industry in NZ given so many good movies are flimed there. These companies will be able to sponsor you for a work permit.

    Default visas for freelances

    If you plan to work freelance, then your only option is a Long term business visa as you are, in effect, operating as self employed. Your best bet is to find a job in your field until your residency is sorted, and then consider going back to freelancing.

    Hope that helps :)

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