On 9 November Immigration New Zealand will select all EOIs at the current threshold of 160 points.
After 9 November 2022, the points threshold for selection will increase to 180 points, to better align with the future direction of the Skilled Migrant Category. EOIs will be selected again on 18 January 2023.
New Zealand Skilled Migration Points Test
The pool mark for the New Zealand Skilled Migrant program is 100 points. However, due to the competitive nature of these visas, a pool mark does not guarantee an invitation to apply and you need 160 points to get an invite.
The invitation mark can and does fluctuate depending on the time of year, number of candidates for the nominated occupation and the current occupation ceiling.
To ensure you have a competitive advantage over all other potential applicants please contact us for a consultation. The above Points test is provided as a guide only and may not be indicative of the points assigned by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
At consultation, our Skilled Migration experts will ensure you claim the most points possible under current migration legislation, which could prove the difference between receiving an invitation and not.
