Have gone tru the whole page and it's sad to see that we Nigerians are already giving up on NZ PR.
Let me see if this helps. How may of us have considered going tru silver fern as a pathway to obtaining NZ PR? I did some research and i found out that Indians use this route a lot.
And yes 160 point is very obtainable. With an msc, 8yrs work experience, one can easily make 160 points. Let's make use of these alternatives abeg. As for silver fern am giving it a try once it opens, i encourage us to use that medium also.

The silver fern visa is issued for 9 months,only 300 places and 20-35yrs age category!
Work experience from Nigeria is not recognized i.e. (not from a comparable labour market) ...that is why Nigerians find it difficult to get 160 points!

PAR is the short version to say your qualification is recognised in NZ. It's also way cheaper. The IQA actually gives a comparative qualification. So it will your your degree is equivalent to a NZ degree or lower so cannot be accepted as a degree qual. It's also more in depth as it asks for your trnascripts etc. It's also about 3 times more expensive. However you will need it for any work/ study visa application so you may well do the IQA first time

Comparable labour market requirement
If you do not qualify for points for skilled employment, or for work experience in an area of absolute skills shortage, your work experience must have been gained in a comparable labour market. While undertaking this work experience you must have been a citizen or permanent resident of that country, or had the lawful authority to work in that country.
please could you explain this??

Re: New Zealand Skilled Worker Category by kennedychinedu: 12:53am On Mar 15
Please note in order to be granted residence under the Skilled Migrant Category, you must be awarded points for skilled employment in New Zealand, or have a Doctorate or Master's degree gained in New Zealand.

If you do not have skilled employment in New Zealand or a New Zealand Doctorate or Master's degree, but you otherwise meet the Skilled Migrant Category requirements, you will be able to apply for a Skilled Migrant Category Job Search visa. This visa is granted for the purpose of obtaining skilled employment in New Zealand. If this temporary work visa is granted, the decision on your residence will be deferred. If you obtain skilled employment during the deferral period your residence application may be approved. If you do not obtain skilled employment during the deferral period your residence application will be declined.
I saw the above on the website. Does it mean that becos i dont have a skilled employment in new zealand i cannot apply for permanent residency.
40manlappy:
This topic was inspired by a slight "derailment" on the Canadian thread.

I am not very knowledgeable on the subject but I think we can exchange ideas and gradually get more information on the subject.

Let me share a few of what I have found out so far.

First, as a skilled worker hopeful, the first thing to do is to check if your skills are in demand. It is noteworthy that there are immediate skilled shortages and long-term skilled shortages.

Second is to check if you are eligible. If the finding is positive, the next thing to do is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Be ready to cough out about $530 to support the application smiley

Let us keep the thread going with useful, relevant and practical information. Cheers!

Your ascertion is quite confusing also.I read your statement over and over again until I was able to understand what you are talking about.

Have you started the main EOI Skilled Migration app or you are still trying to use the free online assessment to find out your eligiblity.
1.The exact point that will be awarded base on your qualification will be when you have done the educational pre-assessment ie PAR but if you are still assessing your eligibility using the free online platform and award yourself level 6 for 50 points it will not reflect the same when you eventually do the qualification pre-assessment.
if my explanation is not clear then summarise your first question let be elaborate more on it

2.you will get bonus point awarded to you if your skill is among the list of absolute skill shortage if not they will not award you any bonus point then if the skill is among the long term skill shortage a bonus point will also be given but from my own observation so far,the occupations in both list are always different
I don't think you will claim points for both.they classified the occupations in short term and long term bases.so your occupation can't be in short term as well as long term skill shortage.i will clarify you more if you wish
Please i would need your assistance about this EOI skilled migration app, is there a link for it. and please how do i go about the education pre assesment. thank you
