Hi
I am a New Zealand lawyer based in Wellington and will help you with your question today. Please give me a minute to read the question

There is no point in making an application at present because the borders are closed for new immigration applications until probably next year. The only persons who can gain entry are New Zealand citizens and those with permanent residency. No new immigration applications are being processed

Customer
I dont have intent to enter NZ this year, i also understand that residence visa will will take 6 months to process.
so can i apply now for EOI ?

You can apply but you do not have enough points as yet

Customer

Customer

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

The level of points has been increased so you have to work on the increased level.

Customer
the previous draw i saw was all at 160
Customer
will a company in NZ make a job offer if i start the EOI process and does that help to increase the points.
Customer
your suggestions to increase the points. ?
Customer
How much do you charge if you need to file my residence visa?

I do not usually act for people getting a visa but suggest they get someone like Malcolm Pacific
