He can only get one post study visa but he could apply for a student visa for the level 6/7 qualificationsand then with the further qualifications, he could apply for a work visa

Customer
Thank you for getting back to me. Can we have a quick call to discuss this immigration query further ?

What further issue do you need discussed, so I can prepare if needed?
Customer
In your reply you mentioned that with further level 6/7 qualifications, he could apply for a work visa. Which work visa are you referring here ?Also I need to discuss if he can continue to stay in new Zealand without doing a level 6/7 course by exteding his post study work visa or apply for some other work visa
Customer
Let me know whenever you are ready for the call
Customer
