If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a new country, or of being able to stay permanently in another country, you should consider a PR visa after studying in New Zealand. This visa allows you to live and work in the country for three years and to work in any role you choose. This means you can explore the market and find the perfect role for you.
There are a number of requirements to fulfill to get PR in New Zealand, but the most important criteria are that you’re under 55 years old and have a job offer from an employer in New Zealand. You also need to demonstrate good English language skills and an interest in pursuing a career in New Zealand.
A PR in New Zealand is now not as difficult as it used to be. It used to be that students automatically got PR when they finished their studies, but that’s no longer the case. International students need to study English in New Zealand to be eligible for a PR, and a score of 6.5 or higher is required to be eligible for this visa.
If you’ve finished your studies and have a job offer, you can apply for a PR visa. It can take up to 10 months to process your application. In the meantime, you should be able to work in New Zealand as an employee and apply for a New Zealand citizenship.
