Detail Of NZ New Construction and Infrastructure Skill Shortage List

New Zealand welcomes foreign skilled workers who can meet the labour shortages list of the country. The New Zealand Skill Shortage list mentions those occupations that are in urgent need to get filled up by the overseas skilled workers. If you are offered a job that is listed on the list and have got the qualifications and experience to match then be ready to apply for a New Zealand Permanent Resident Visa. The skill shortages are hard to fill locally in New Zealand and thus, hiring workers from overseas is the best solution for the New Zealand government to fill these labour gaps.

The Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) identifies occupations where there is a sustained and on-going shortage of highly skilled workers both globally and throughout New Zealand.

If you get a job in an occupation on the LTSSL and meet the list requirements, you may be granted a Work to Residence visa under the Long Term Skill Shortage List work visa. This means that you may be eligible to apply for residence in two years, provided you meet standard requirements and that job has a base salary of at least NZ$45,000.
