The borders are closed to new immigrants at present due to Covid. It is uncertain when this will change, but probably later this year or next year.

When the borders reopen, the basic requirements are a clear police record and good health. Then you are best to apply for a work visa, based on skills shortages. This is based on your qualifications. You will also need good English skills. If you want to know more about skills let me know your job skills and education

Customer

Thanks for the answer. Its ok about the closed border, we also need out time. Police record is clean and health is very good for both of us. I sm 35yo bachelor for business management and working as an accountant. Also knowledge in architecture and also worked as a office coordinator in a clothing factory. My wife 31yo bachelor and master dg in biology, working as a specialist in a big telecomunication company. Cooks well too :). We have some money apart, more than 100k euro and our english is very good for both of us. So based on our short description, what do you think our position is in applying for migration in NZ
