04.05.17: Latest draws of Expressions of Interest (EOI) in Residence in New Zealand under Skilled Migrant Category (SMC)


Here are the results of draws that have taken place since the policy change came into force EOI SMC selections since October 2016 changes.  However, please read the notice below. Apart from a slight blip immediately after the Christmas/New Year holiday, there are no significant changes.

INZ has now announced the general principles of the changes to how points are gained for this category.  These will be implemented on 14 August 2017, but the details will not become known until June. For more information about the changes, please see other post entitled “The Times They Are A changing!”

Since 11 October,  you have needed at least 160 points to be eligible for selection, regardless of whether or not you have a job offer. The possibility of being selected with slightly less points because of the Additional Selection Criteria has also been removed.  

 If you need help working out how you could get to 160 points or what other opportunities there might be for you, then do  Contact Us for help!
