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. You can do this yourself online or, with some education providers, on campus. Depending on your skills, where you come from, your age and other factors you may be able to work in New Zealand temporarily for more than 3 months.
Some visas recognise your skills and experience, while others let you find out about our lifestyle and culture. If your occupation is defined as skilled, you may be eligible to apply for a resident visa under the Skilled Migrant Category.
