The latest expression of interest news
The selection for the skilled migration category for the EOI, took place last week on Wednesday the 30th of September 2015. The time of this event was at 1:00 pm in the afternoon, according to the New Zealand time.
The selection of the following expression of interests was selected:
• 595 expressions of interests out of 123 registrants, those with a total of 140 points of more.
• 188 expressions of interests out of 424 registrants, for those with a job or a job offer who held a total of 100 points or more but less than 140.
What does this mean?
This means that there were a total of 783 expressions of interests chosen from 1660 total registrants.
The next selection will take place in a fortnight.
Prior to applying for New Zealand residence under the skilled migration category, it is essential that you first submit an expression of interest.
You must meet set requirements and you must obtain the minimum amount of points.
What are the selections based on?
The pool from which the selections are based, take a number of variables into account.
Some of the following factors are considered:
• The quality in the pool
• The amount of places available in the Skilled/Business stream of the New Zealand Residence programme
• The sum total of the expressions of interest in the pool at the time of selection.
What additional information should I consider?
Sufficient amounts of available, additional expression of interests may be chosen on the basis of additional selection criteria, according to the Minister of Immigration every six months.
Your expression of interest will remain in the pool for the duration of six months or until a selection takes place. If it hasn’t been selected during this six month period, it will be withdrawn. You will then need to submit another expression and pay the fee again right from the start.
