ugsams:


while you do, try not to limit yourself to Auckland.


Hi Ugsams. I need your advise bro.

I just finished my Msc in one of the Finnish university. Did international relations.

Living here with my family, two kids.

Do you think i would have any reasonable ending by doing my Phd in New Zealand? Hence I planned to go with my family.

Am very much aware that my wife can work unlimited hours and education is free for kids.

Based of my course " international relations " do you think it can give me any pathway to PR?

Thanks

In New Zealand having a PHD gives you a pathway to PR, irrespective of the field. Go for it if you can afford to. Your wife might even have a better chance at the PR at the end of the day. I wish you the best in whatever decision you settle for at the end of the day.

In respect to what baba Femi said that one is not allowed to stay back after studies on scholarship basis. Please I would like to ask some few questions
1. Is there any degree specifications to that ie phds or masters inclusive .
2. Does it mean you won’t be issued the three years working visa after your studies
3. What if the person sponsored himself and not bound by the scholarship
4. Lastly, for instance for a PhD student in health related fields happens to get a work Or for better for worse mechanism, on or before his or her studies elapses, what happens then ?
Any other person with ideas can help out as well wit the questions

If you sponsor yourself, you are not bound by the scholarship rules so you can change to the work visa/ residency pathway. You will work as part of your PhD anyway so work is not a problem.

Re: 8 Things You Need To Know About New Zealand by Ticha: 9:48pm On Aug 21
NZ VISAS - INZ is not currently processing any offshore visas unless they meet some very strict criteria. Part of my job involves liaising with INZ as I work in education compliance. This is from INZ. If anyone is currently offering you a visa, it's a scam! Unless of course you fall into any of the categories below

Visa processing capacity continues to grow. 70% of onshore Immigration Officers are currently able to work. All offshore offices remain closed and although onshore offices have reopened there are limited staff numbers due to COVID-19 alert level 3 guidelines and the requirement to work from home when possible.

With increased processing capacity and the ability for some staff to access INZ offices INZ is now able to resume the processing of paper applications such as residence class visa applications and formally prioritise both residence class and temporary entry class visa applications.

In terms of residence class visa applications, priority will be given where the applicant is in New Zealand. For onshore applications priority will be given as below:
• For Skilled Migrant Category (SMC), priority will be given to applications with job offers where:
o Applicants have an hourly rate equivalent to or higher than twice the median wage (currently $51.00 per hour or an annual salary of $106,080 or more);
o Applicants hold current occupational registration where registration is required by immigration instructions.
• For Residence from Work Category applications (Talent (Accredited Employer), Talent (Arts, Culture and Sport), South Island Contribution, Religious Worker and Long Term Skill Shortage List), priority will be given to:
o Applications which include a job offer with an hourly rate equivalent to or higher than twice the median wage (currently $51.00 per hour or an annual salary of $106,080 or more);
o Applications which include a job offer which requires occupational registration where occupational registration is required by immigration instructions.
Second priority will be given to residence class visa applications where the applicant is out of New Zealand.
In terms of temporary entry class visa applications, priority will be given to applications for critical workers to support the Government response to COVID-19 and for other temporary visa applicants that are in New Zealand.

Further changes may be needed to the prioritisation criteria as international travel restrictions change, and more information becomes available about the effects of COVID-19 on the domestic labour market.
Immigration officers retain the discretion to prioritise other applications where the circumstances of the application require particular urgency.

As INZ transitions through the various alert levels processing will be resumed for most of the application categories.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply online for eligible visas. Paper applications will take longer to process because of the reduced capacity of staff in onshore offices. There will also be an increase in the time and effort required in processing some visa application types due to additional requests for information or comment being required.
We will keep you updated of any further changes.

National Area Documentation Office (NaDO)
The National Area Documentation Office (NaDO) has now reopened with a small number of staff now able to work onsite. The NaDO staff have been focused on opening and tendering the high volume of mail received during the lockdown period.

What date will be used as the lodgement date of my application that I couriered in / posted in?
The received application date will be the date that is shown on the courier consignment note. If there is no date to be found, the received date applied will be the date INZ opens your application at NaDO.

What if I want to dispute the date of lodgement of my visa application?
INZ understands that it has been difficult to complete and submit paper applications during COVID-19 lockdown. Disputes of lodgement dates may be considered on a case by case basis once the application has been allocated.

I have been granted an extension to my visa under the Epidemic Management Notice. Will the visa application I submitted still be processed?
Yes. Applications will continue to be processed in line with processing priorities during COVID-19.

What if my paper visa application is incomplete because I have not been able to get all the required documents during the Covid19 lockdown? Will my visa application be returned due to failing to meet mandatory lodgement requirements?
No. INZ understands that it may have been difficult to submit all required documents with your paper application. INZ will note the missing documents at lodgement and request that you provide the mandatory documents as soon as you are able. INZ will not be able to process the application until the required documents have been received.

Varying visa conditions
We have become aware of some confusion around variation of conditions. The Government agreed to relax visa conditions for a short period to allow some temporary migrant workers and international students to assist with our essential services during the COVID-19 response. The form to apply to vary visa conditions of workers in essential services is on our website.
Only temporary migrants already employed in essential services can vary their hours and be redeployed to do other roles within their current workplaces or do their current role in different workplaces (but within same region) to help essential businesses keep operating while New Zealand remains at Alert Level 3 or 4 and six weeks after that.
All work visa holders who are not employed in essential services may only work for the employer(s) specified in their visa conditions until a Variation of Conditions or new visa has been granted.

No. Most low skilled jobs do not lead to PR but It can set you on the path to convert to a resident class visa.
