Step 1 : Study in New Zealand

One of the easiest ways to enter New Zealand , enjoy a few years of stay , get to know New Zealand culture, economy and ways of life before you make a decision to stay on and live is to come on a Study Visa.

Undergraduate studies in New Zealand would be a minimum of 2 years to 3 or 4 years depending on the course you choose. A Graduate or post graduate program would be 1 to 2 years depending on the course you choose. Post graduate students may be able to bring their Partner/spouse on a Partnership based Work Visa if they qualify.

Once you have completed your studies, you may be able to stay on and work in New Zealand for a while to gain work experience depending on the visa you hold. You may even consider staying in New Zealand permanently.

New Zealand’s Immigration policies include a post-study work pathway for international students who have completed a New Zealand qualification. This pathway enables students to find a job and get overseas work experience in a field directly related to their studies. Based on the industry and the level of their skills this pathway makes it easier for them to apply for residence under the Skilled Migrant Category.
