New Zealand has been actively encouraging skilled immigration for many years to combat high levels of emigration among native New Zealanders. New Zealand’s need for international workers with specialist skills was exacerbated by the Christchurch earthquake of 2011. The government has decided to rebuild the city which will create many more jobs than native New Zealanders can fill.
New Zealand Work Visas

- Residence from Work Visa: a temporary visa scheme which allows visa holders to apply for legal permanent residence in New Zealand after a period of 2 years.
