Migrating to New Zealand, anyone?

Here is a bit of public service to people wanting to migrate to NZ, especially my kababayans.

If you want to migrate to NZ as a skilled migrant you have to meet the criteria set out by NZ Immigration, which uses a point system for assessment.

You gain points depending on your work experience, educational background, age and other factors.

Work Experience: 2 years gives 10 points, 4 is 15 points, 6 is 20 points, 8 is 25 points, 10 years is 30 points.

Education: Bachelor’s Degree gives 50 points, Masters/Doctorate Degree is 55 points.

Age: 20-29 years old gives 30 points, 30-39 is 25 points, 40-44 is 20 points, 45-49 is 10 points, 50-55 is 5 points.

In addition to the above points, you can also gain bonus points if you have a close relative living in NZ (10 points), have a job offer in NZ (50 points), from your spouse's qualifications (10 points), or the occupation you are in is in an area of absolute skills shortage in NZ (10 points).

The minimum points you have to get is 100 points before even being allowed to file an application. For most Filipinos who are college graduates below 40 years old, 100 points is easily obtained even without bonus points.

Say you have 8 years work experience (25 points), with a Bachelor’s degree (50 points), and between the age of 30 to 39 years old (25 points). This gives you a total of 100 points, enough to pass the threshold set by Immigration for your application to be considered. It doesn’t mean though that you automatically acquire residency if you acquire 100 points. It only means you have a chance, because if there are 10 thousand applicants all achieving 100 points and only 1 thousand can be granted residency then your chances is but 1 of 10 or 10%. The higher your points, the better your chances will be. Like if you have a job offer which is 50 points, you get 150 points easy. That is an almost 100% probability of success.

This is the NZ Immigration points system in a nutshell. If you want more information about migrating to NZ, the best site to go to is the NZ Immigration Website. You can download all the forms from the site or even lodge the application on-line. My advice is for you first download the "Self Assessment Guide for Residence in NZ" from the NZ Immigration website. And if everything goes well and all your documentations are in order, you can be in NZ in 3 to 6 months time. And you know what's great about that? You AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILY will be migrating and living together. Compare that with working as an OFW. You might be earning big bucks but the years you spend away from your family is precious time wasted. Let's enjoy life.

  • hi! i found ur blog randomly cuz i've been searching for many infos about migrating to NZ. i've seriously considered it and has just lodged my eoi to NZIS. totoo na in 6 months time makakaalis ka? what if mga early 2006 pako umalis? kasi gusto ko sana mag-pasko pa rin sa pinas :) is it ok to hold off my move?

    tsaka, mag-isa lang kasi akong nag-apply so obviously i have to contact agents for a place to live. madali lang ba yun? wala akong relatives sa NZ so i would like to have a place to live when i fly down there. how much money should i bring with me to cover at least a month of expenses? would it be easier to contact employers while applying for my visa or wait til i arrive there?

    hope to hear from u soon and thanks for the time reading my post :)

    regards,

  • hi Ka Uro! additional post lang po :) i am in the IT industry too! mas mabilis po ba and may chance ba ko na malaki since 2nd biggest nation of applicants is the Pinas? i have almost 6 yrs of IT experience. i cross my fingers!

    thanks!

  • letlet,
    as far as i know, once you get a PR, you still have 12 months to come over here. so ok lang na i-hold off mo ang pagpunta rito.

    yung iba mong questions i've tackled most of them in my other posts. may links ako sa right side "Living in NZ".

    kung gusto mong makakuha ng marami pang info punta ka sa www.backpack-newzealand.com, may forum doon ng mga Filipinos who want to migrate to new zealand.

    sa tingin ko, malaki ang chances mo kung sa IT ka, but it still depends on your actual skillset dahil broad din ang IT.

    I find your blog educational, funny and interesting.

    I already submitted my EOI and got selected from the pool. I am a Real Estate Broker here in the Philippines. Is there a good chance I can get a job there as a Real Estate Salesperson.

  • hi ka uro....napakaimformative nman nitong site mo...
    Ask ko sana if yung mga CPA dito sa pinas naqualify din magwork as accountant dyan given the chance na magmigrate...Me idea ka ba if anong retrainings or courses na dapat ulitin ang kailangan.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:20 PM, August 11, 2005  

  • md,
    i think madali siyang makahanap ng work dito as real estate broker. maraming pinoy ang nagwowork as real estate agents maganda kasi ang property market dito sa nz.


    anonymous,
    hindi ko lang alam kung anong trainings ang kailangan ipasa para makapag-work as accountant. try mong i-ask ang question mo sa http://www.pinoyimmigrants.com/

    Hi im Francis working here in UAE for almost 6 yrs now. Im so very intereted to migrate in NZ that's why when i saw your website i feel more encourage.Thanks a lot. Gusto ko lang sanang magtanong kung may chance ba kong makapag-work diyan as Cadd Draugthsman or Grahics Designer at saan bang lugar diyan sa NZ marami ang may ganitong Job opportunities?.. We are processing our papers at this moment waitng for ITA (invitation to apply) We are praying na tuloy tuloy na po ito.Salamat po ulit.

    ya marami rin ditong ganyan ang work. try mo ang www.seek.co.nz to search. i'ld say auckland or wellington are the best cities to work over here.

    hi im john nagtatrabaho po ako ngayon dito sa KSA for almost 7rs na. Nasa Telecommunication po ang field ko ( Fiber Optics O&M) gusto ko lang malaman kung marami ba akong mapapasukan dyan? Nagpa member na ako sa newjobz.co.nz dahil sila na daw ang bahalang maghanap ng work dyan at mag process ng papers.Ok ba ang ganitong paraan.thanks in advance

  • john,
    highly technical ang field mo kaya i'm sure malaki chance mo dito. try mo muna ang www.seek.co.nz para maghanap ng jobs online. hindi ko kilala yung newjobz.co.nz pero wala pa aking na-meet na pinoy na na-land nila sa kahit anong job.

  • magandang araw ka uro,

    kumusta, ako po si tonyo mula sa bayan ng san pablo laguna, gaya po ng turo nyo, sinubukan kong mag apply online thru seek. Tinamaan po siguro ng swerte nung nakaraang linggo, tinawagan at nakausap ko po yung employer na taga auckland. Satisfied daw po siya sa interview at nag request po ng reference. Syempre dali-dali akong nagbigay, para hindi mainip at magbago ng isip. Nakaka-kaba pala pag bigla kang makakatanggap ng email at sabihin sayo na tumawag para sa interview. Natanggap ko email nya umaga pa, reply ako hapon na. Sinubukan kong tanggalin muna yung kaba, pero di talaga matanggal medyo nabawasan lang. Mabuti na lang madaling intindihin yung ingles ng employer tsaka parang mabait di katulad nung huli kong kausap na taga oz, hirap talaga ako…ini-imagine ko nga na malamang talsik laway non pag nagsasalita.
    Parang sobrang haba na ng pasakalye ko, makikisuyo lang po, baka po pwede nyo i-share kung paano yung typical job application process sa nz. Katulad din po ba dito sa pinas na kailangan munang dumaan sa napakaraming interview at examination bago maka tanggap ng offer?
    Maraming salamat po. Sana mag tuloy tuloy na to.

  • tonyo,
    ako'y nagagalak sa mga magandang development. sige pagiisipan ko ang suggestion mo. pero actualy dito mas madali ang procedure. usually isang interview lang at wala mga exam. pati nga mga employment certifications hindi man nilang hihingin. pero tinatawagan talaga nila ang past employers kadalasan.

    By Blogger Ka Uro, at 5:51 PM, September 08, 2005  

  • ka uro,

    si tonyo po uli. Plano ko po kung sakaling pagpapalain na ako ay makatanggap ng job offer ay mag-apply muna ng work visa. Pag nasa nz na 'tsaka ako magsa-submit ng EOI para madala ang family. Tama po ba ang aking gagawin o mayroon pang ibang mas madali at mabilis na paraan.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:52 PM, September 08, 2005  

  • tonyo,
    tama yung plano mo sa dito na lang mag-submit ng EOI. yun ang pinaka mabilis na paraan.

  • Hello KU,
    maitatanong ko lang po, maintenance engineer po ako bali 13 years experience ko na po sa field ng printing press, packaging and publishing companies as electro-mechanic. Tapos po ako ng electrical engineering at nagtrabaho na rin po sa Saudi and now here in Oman. In demand po ba yong field na ito dyan sa nz, or any kind of maintenance work, mechanical, electrical or electronics in manufacturing companies. If i try to visit nz as tourist, pwede po ba akong makahanap ng job offer. Ano po yong suggestion nyo. Is there any agency there na pwedeng mag apply.
    Maraming salamat po

    By Anonymous erro, at 5:24 AM, September 12, 2005  

  • erro,
    i think there is definitely a demand however it is not my field. kaya siguro better to check www.seek.co.nz and also the www.nzimmigrtion.govt.nz for a list of priority occupations. i think yours might be in the list of priority occupations.

    By Blogger Ka Uro, at 8:14 AM, September 12, 2005  

  • Hi ka uro! Very informative ng site mo. Im planning to migrate also to New Zealand with my wife and my little boy. Actually, pinili ko rin yung south australia kasi may kamag anak ako don pero gaya ng sabi ng iba mas may ok daw maghanap ng work sa NZ. I'm also in the field of IT...java/unix programmer po from telecoms sa bansa natin for almost 7 yrs experience. Mahihirapan ba ako maghanap ng stable job dyan? nanghihinayang kasi ako sa work ko dito pero inisip ko na lang future ng baby ko dito sa bansa natin. Actually, you convince me na ituloy ko yung application ko...actually may schedule pa lang ako ng seminar sa sept 27. Sana matulungan mo rin kami pagnatuloy kami dyan.

    By Blogger banjo, at 11:30 PM, September 12, 2005  

  • banjo,
    "mas okay maghanap ng work sa NZ"
    i don't know about that. kasi, as far as i know mas malaki ang Aussie kaya mas maraming jobs doon. pero ok din dito dahil sa palagay ko hindi ka mahihirapan maghanap ng job dito. in-demand ang mga java/unix programmers. subukan mong magtingin sa www.seek.co.nz. good luck!

    she,
    mag-join ka dun sa yahoo group ng pinoyz2nz. eto ang link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pinoyz2nz/

    maraming tutulong sa yo dun.


    Sparkyet,
    ganun ang nga mga employers. di lang naman dito maging sa US/Australia o Canada pare-pareho.
    kung okay naman ang trabaho mo ngayon, ituloy mo na lang ang ITA at maghintay ng result. mahirap ang mag-tourist dito tapos maghanap ng trabaho. hahapan ka pa rin ng work permit. WTR (work to residence) ang malamang na ibibigay sa inyo. ok lang yon. ibig sabihin non legal kang humanap ng work dito. kapag may job-offer kana pwede mo papalit into Permanent Residence and visa mo.

    grabe!! sobrang happy ako dahil sa wakas i finally found a site na makakatulong sa akin. sobrang thank you dun sa sites you've mentioned sa mga comments na nabasa ko.

    i was selected na sa pool last 28sep05, but until now wala pa rin akong narereceive na ITA. im single, i work in foreign bank here in makati city. tingin mo ba ka uro me chance akong ma-invite? kase medyo sobrang kabado na ko talaga it's more than 1 month na rin kasi akong naghihintay. do you think seeking a job offer from NZ would speed up my application?

    thanks so much.

  • adel,
    mas magiging happy ka kung sasali ka sa pinoyz2nz na yahoo group. kung marami kang natutunan dito, mas marami pang maitutulong sa yo ang group n aito.

    can't see why you wont be selected. although malungkot tumira dito kung single ka. definitely seeking a job offer would speed up the application. pero mahirap maghanap ng job offer kung wala ka pa dito. most employers prefer applicants na nandito na. but you can try applying on line. malay mo baka maka-tsamba. may mga nangyari ng ganon.
    good luck!

  • Hi Ka Uro. First of all, thanks for going out of your way to help and guide fellow Filipinos to the New Zealand path. You've certainly enlightened most of us planning to move there. I would just like to ask Ka Uro, if you have any idea whether mainframe programmers could make a good living in NZ. Konti lang kasi napansin kong mainframe job openings in job sites such as seek and jobstuff. Do you know if they still use those big bulky mainframes in insurance companies and banks? Malaking tulong po ito to boost our confidence kung sakaling mainframe pa rin gamit nila dyan. Maraming salamat po Ka Uro.

Marami po akong natutunan sa blog na ito, ako rin po ay nagnanais na makapunta at makipagsapalaran sa NZ dangan nga lang at mejo kulang pa ang working experience ko. Itatanong ko lang po sana kung hanggang 55 lang ang age limit nila? ang tatay ko po kc ay isang CPA at may higit na 20 yrs ng nagtatrabaho, naging OFW na rin po sya, kaya lang ay pa 57 na po siya. Wala na po ba siyang pag-asang makapunta dyan? thanks po in advance!

  • hi anonymous,
    i'm afraid hindi na pwedeng mag-apply under the skilled migrant category ang father mo. ang pag-asa na lang niyang makapunta dito is via work visa o kaya kung majority ng mga anak niya maging residente dito, automotic pwede rin siyang maging resident. halimbawa, tatlo kayong magkakapatid tapos yung dalawa nasa NZ, pwede siyang makuha dito.

  • Hi KaUro,

    Isang hirit pa po uli =) IT pro din nga po pala ako, Java/J2EE. 2 yrs na din po akong nagwowork pero 1 yr pa lng sa Java at yung 1 yr naman ay sa QA. Ako po ay graduate ng isang 4 yr course at isang 2 yr associate degree (IT related). Ang problema lang po ay wala akong mga employment certificate na maipapakita kung sakaling hingin iyong mga iyon. Malaking sagabal po ba ito?? May pag asa po ba ang mga credentials ko kahit wala akong maipakitang proof na nagtrabaho na ako ng 2 yrs? salamat po uli!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:12 AM, July 04, 2006  

  • di sila naghahanap ng mga employment certificate dito. kapag sinabi mong nagwork ka ng 2 years, they'll take your word for it. although yung iba tatawag talaga sa mga references na ibibigay mo kahit overseas. very in demand and java/j2ee so i don't think mahihirapan kang maghanap ng work.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:17 AM, July 07, 2006  

  • maaari ngang tama ang tito mo. dito sa nz meron din narereciv kung wala kang trabaho. pero di yon available sa mga bagong migrants. dapat naka 2 years (i think) ka na dito baka ka maka-avail ng benefits. yung halaga ng marereciv depende rin sa situation mo. kung marami kang anak, mas marami matatanggap.

    salamat sa tanong mo. pero sana naman di ka nagbabalak pumunta ng aussie o nz para lamang tumambay at tumanggap ng benepisyo. yun ang maling mentality ng pag-migrate. kaya nga ang iba nagagalit sa mga migrants na walang trabaho. dahil nagiging pasanin lang sila ng gobyerno.

    By Blogger Ka Uro, at 10:10 AM, July 07, 2006  

  • KaUro,
    Sana nga po ay hindi na hingin sa akin ang mga employment certificates kapag nag-apply ako as Skilled Migrant dahil wala po talaga akong maibibigay. Gusto ko na po talagang umalis dito sa Bansa natin para makapag-ipon dahil pakiramdam ko ay walang asenso dito lalo na kapag regular na empleyado ka lang dahil sa hirap ng buhay. Sana po ay makarating din ako dyan at suwertihin din. Salamat po sa pagsagot nyo sa mga tanong ko. Nawa'y lalo pa po kayong datnan ng swerte dyan.

  • tessa,
    ok naman pala points mo. palagay ko ok lang na mag-followup ka. subukan mo munang mag-follow-up by email. tanungin mo kung bakit 8 months na wala pang result at kung affected ka nung bagong policy. ok lang naman sa kanila yon.

    actually, pwede mong gamitin yung mga resonse nila to get a tourist visa. ipakita mo sa emabassy yung mga sulat ng mga comapnies na interesado at sabihin mo diretchahan sa kanila na plano mo lang mag-attend ng interbyu with them.

  • J2X,
    para malaman ninyo kung papasa kayo, pumunta kayo sa www.immigration.govt.nz at hanapin kung papaano mag-assess ng points. if you get 140 points, automatic na pasado. between 100-139 points, depende sa ranking. palagay ko yung asawa mo pwede siya ang maging principal applicant. kung graduate siya sa school na recognized ng nz, mas ok. nasa immigration website ang lahat ng info. kailangan nyo lang basahin. lahat ng forms andun din. at pwede rin mag-apply online.

    ang huling payo ko, mag-join kayo sa Pinoyz2NZ na yahoo group. gud lak

  • hi ka uro. thanks for this blog. its really informative.
    i am a nurse and a social worker here in the philippines. i am married with two kids. my family is considering applying for immigration to NZ and we passed naman the points requirements. however, lately, we are considering the possibility na ako muna ang mauna sa NZ if i get my nursing license there, apply for a job and get settled then petition my family. but this means that i will have to endure being away from them for months or even years. my querry is that, would it be better for me to process my application first, get a job, be settled in NZ before i petition my family or can we have this be done simultaneously while applying for immigration to NZ as a family.medyo mahal din kasi ang gagastusin for these application kaya we wanted to know which is a better option.
    thanks so much... i will appreciate any suggestion.

    By Blogger ciopao, at 2:39 PM, February 15, 2008  

  • it would be better that you apply as a family. then once you have a visa, pwede naman mauna ka sa kanila and get settled in NZ. then once you're settled, say within a few months, pasunurin mo na sila. it's more difficult and lengthy process kung later pa sila mag-apply and may even turn out to be more expensive. usually kasi kapag family isa lang ang bayad.

Nag-aalala lang ako kasi sila nag lodge ng application last July 2008. by end of Sept na interview na sila and issued na WTR notice nila November 28. Kami nag-lodge June 12, 2008. Hanggang ngayon wala pa po interview. Nag send na po ako ng follow up e-mail sa VO ko na si Stephanie Gong last Monday February 2, 2009. Hanggang ngayon wala pa rin siya reply. Ano po ba ang maganda ko gawon? Send ako ulit follow up e-mail? Kanino pa po kaya pwede mag follow up ng application namin?

For One, I have not had any telephone interview for a job yet. (Only because the recruitment agencies tell me that they woould prefer someone in NZ already). Second, I have no family (Friends daw are not counted), has to be family and third, I have never been to NZ ( I only got the information during interview via research). I was given till next week to prove ourselves. Any suggestions please.. We have come a long way just to be denied...

  • Hi Ka Uro,

    Mabuhay! Pit Senyor from Cebu City, Philippines.

    I have been reading a lot about this site. I have followed the trail of almost all comments from start 'til end.

    Just want to ask questions and I hope you can enlighten me.

    1. I tried the online evaluation of migrationexpert.com and was eligible to live and work in NZ. Is this a valid a assesment? I did not apply for any VISA yet since I am still on the planning stage. I don't know anybody in NZ and I welcome any help I can get when I'm there. I have prepared myself financially and would make sure that I will not pester any Filipino on this part once I get there.

    2. I checked the jobs available in NZ and I think that I can land on a job but I'm afraid of the competition. When a new migrant/foriegn worker applies for a job in NZ do they get the same rate as the locals or PR?

    3. Any insights about the current economic status of NZ? Are jobs really hard to get now in NZ? Is it because of the recession? or is this a government intervention to control the rise asians coming to NZ? I've read an article that the NZ govt. is doing something to control the population growth of asians in NZ.

    I would take the advice of the many. I will not go there unless I have a scheduled interview or a job waiting for me because I don't want to be a headache to the NZ govt. or any Filipino in NZ. I cannot stand the crisis in our country anymore but I also cannot afford to gamble my hard earned money travelling to NZ and get nothing.

    Warmest regards,

    Rhyde

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:16 AM, June 27, 2010  

  • hi rhyde,
    1. i dont know migrationexpert.com so i cannot comment about their assessment. you have to make your own assessment based on what is in the nz immigration website. www.immigration.govt.nz.

    2. migrants are supposed to get the same salaries as locals or pr with comparable skills

    3. NZ was affected by recession too but economic situation is improving. what you said about controlling rise of asian population is true, although the govt cannot admit this as it will be seen as discrimination. the govt does this through policy. for example making IELTS (english requirements) more difficult to pass and making employers seek for locals before employing from overseas.

    4. it's good that you are cautious and studying all your options and not simply coming to nz without preparations. continue seeking for jobs via online to get a feel of how in demand your skills are. if you are getting positive responses it is a good indication of your chances. good luck.

  • Dear Ka Uro,
    Ako po pala ay si Jonathan (32yrs old) tubong Mandaluyong (taga loob hehehe)at ang asawa ko po ay si Nez(31yrs old), taga Caloocan. Isang taon mahigit n po kaming magasawa at kasalukuyang nagta trabaho dito sa Singapore. Wala pa po kaming anak pero nagpaplano po na pagpalain ng supling kung papalarin na maging PR sa NZ.

    Ako po ay isang "Project Manager" sa isang maliit na I.T. firm sa SG, at ang asawa ko naman po ay nagta trabaho bilang "Accounts Executive" dito rin sa SG.

    gusto po naming marinig ang mga kuro-kuro at opinyon naming mga kapwa pinoy tungkol sa pagkuha ng permanent residence visa sa NZ, at ang mga dapat naming asahan at mga babala na dapat naming iwasan. Nais po naming humingi ng payo sa pagdedesisyon kung pra sa amin nga ang NZ or kung dapat ba ay mag stay "put" n lng kme dito sa SG (mga pros and cons).

    Nais din po sana naming makakuha ng mga "advise" sa pagkuha ng serbisyo ng immigration specialist. Kaninang umaga po ay may na-meet kami na ang pangalan ay Iain MacLeod, isang NZ citizen at managing partner ng "Immagine Specialists" IAA License number 200800220 (www.immagine.co.nz). Kanina base sa paguusap nya sa aming magasawa, kami daw ay pasado sa 140 points base sa mga criteria ng immigration. Honestly, di ko cia kilala, na google lng cia ng wife ko at umatend kami ng seminar nya kahapon habang nandito cia sa Singapore. Meron po bang nkakakilala sa ahencia na ito? Sinisingil nya kami ng NZ$9,850 as fee. Ito po ba ay mkatwiran na cost? Meron po ba kyo na mairerecominda na immigration specialist na katulad ni Iain, maga guarantee 100% ang pagkakuha ng PR?

    Kamusta rin po pala ang buhay dyan sa NZ? Gaano po kadali or kahirap maghanap ng trabaho sa panahon ngyon?(Lalo na ngayn may pinancial crisis sa Europe). Mas mabuti po ba talagang kumuha ng immigration specialist? Meron po ba sa inyo na nanggaling na sa Singapore at kung meron papaano nyo po maikukumpara ang buhay nyo sa SG compared to NZ?Madali po ba mkaipon ang pangkaraniwang pinoy sa NZ?

    Maraming salamat po.

    please advise me on how I can find a job suitable for my current job here in the Ph. CPA po ako but work as a Management Accountant in a university. my initial self- assessment of my EOI is only 115 points. single pa rin po ako at wala pang family. kaya mas madaragdagan ang points ko kung meron po akong job offer. Please recommend naman po a job site para makahanap ng work sa New Zealand kahit Philippine based po ako.

    You have to find a job offer. Try mo maghanap sa seek.co.nz or trademe.co.nz. Medyo mahirap kasi karamihan gusto nila may work visa at local experience, pero mag-try ka pa rin. Some companies are willing to sponsor if your skills and qualifications fit their requirements.

  • Hello po! I just found your blog and It is very informative because I've been planning to apply for a student visa (New Zealand). I'm a fresh graduate of Finance and planning to take any finance-related course there for one or two years so that I can upgrade my knowledge. Is Finance/Banking course in demand in NZ? Can I easily find a job after studying there? Can I still have a part-time job even if I don't have any experiences or should I work here first in the PH for a year or two to gain experiences? Thank you so much!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:16 PM, July 15, 2015  

  • hi anonymous,
    to find out if your occupation is in demand in nz, go to to www.seek.co.nz and do a search. the number of hits you get will give you an indication if the occupation is in demand or not.

    it is not easy to find a job even after studying here especially if you are not a nz-er and without any previous experience. i think it will be wise to first get at least 2 years experience in the PH.

    hope this helps
