Ideal Applicants - either students or other visa class aspirants to New Zealand
Remember, New Zealand needs skilled people, those who have or can acquire a skill sooner or later. New Zealand does not need the brilliant students who score good marks academically (in Joint Entrance or IITs or in CATs.) Nor does New Zealand needs so called Master degree or PhD holders. New Zealand is a small country which thrives on skill and the only country in the world to have got 10s of medals in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics with only 4 million population. Those who are hands on, have practical skills, or can learn one, be it managing a machine, computer, project or humans, have immense potential in New Zealand . They can get the best of grooming here to be better global professionals than those who scores good marks in written exams. The TRUTH is, New Zealand does not value only qualification; it values sound education which is different from qualification. An average Kiwi is educated, not necessarily and/or simply qualified. Unfortunately when someone comes from India or Bangladesh, or from any other developing country from a middle class family, they do not understand what education means. They equate qualification and degree with education. And when it comes to actual work or job, experience shows that many of them fumble or fail.
There are a few criterion which you need to fulfill wholly or partly if you are to be successful in New Zealand . They are:
Attitude with Technical Skills,
Attitude with Communication Ability,
Attitude with Reference,
Attitude with Perseverance,
Attitude with Practical bend of mind,
Attitude with some Luck,
Attitude with Driving Skills and a domestic license of your own country.
Attitude, Attitude, Attitude and Attitude.
No one has ever failed in New Zealand if they either had at least two parameters from the above criterion, one of the criterions being Attitude and the other any one among these 7.
To be an ideal applicant, you have to fit in to the criterion of any of the visa classes that are open. It could be an ideal student visa applicant, work visa applicant, resident visa applicant, or even a visit visa applicant.
Young (18-24) and ambitious but not a brilliant student in terms of marks scored in exams. Just jump in the process, no need to wait and think too much. No plans required. Why think more when you have nothing to loose as you are young, have time on hand, hardly much to lose, while the maximum strength in blood because of your age.
Mid 20s-30s who wants to study for a year. They can then work and may be eligible to stay back as potential residents if they can curve their niche. They are those who may not have managed ideal career in home country or who have otherwise been left a few places back in the competition and finds no way of catching up. New Zealand gives them a second chance.
Couple finding it too stifling to adjust with the conservative environ or with hostile home country environment either culturally or monetarily. If one of you is a graduate, come as a student for a post graduate course (Level-8 or above) and the spouse comes with an open work permit. The best option you can ever get being offered by a foreign country. It’s the best win-win situation for a qualified couple for a better life in future. If you have children, they too study as domestic students in junior school like other New Zealand children. This means, pay the fee for 1 adult for post-graduate course, and get 1 full time work permit, 1 part time work permit, and complimentary schooling for children. Isn’t it irresistible for a young 3 member family?
Early 30s to 40s. You tried luck in India or home country already. You found it competitive. You want your children to get the best education and not simply a marks oriented bookish qualification as in India and Bangladesh. You cannot afford the money to make your what you desire. You may take a chance in New Zealand if you play your cards right. You may achieve your desire in a decade’s time if you play the cards right. Else you lose money and plans go wrong. Ask yourself what you need from life and how you want to get it. If you are doing very good in home country and have a pathway to achieve your dream, you need to be cautious before you take a harsh decision. But for those who do a SWOT analysis and see they cannot reach the goal, why not be a bit outlandish and try your luck and talent. However, consult us before you take a step. For you might have a family and their well being depends on your success. So discuss your unique case with us (0064211464577) and then take an informed decision.

IDEAL WORK VISA APPLICANT:
As mentioned above, New Zealand gives immense value to skills. This is a skill based country and a skillful practical hands on person in New Zealand usually earns more than any so called qualified pen-paper-computer worker. So, to be an ideal work visa applicant, you need to have a skill set that is in demand in New Zealand and for which employers find hard to recruit from local skill base. Go to any of the popular websites and apply for the positions advertised there. It could be a SAP professional in IT, a Tandoori Chef, a Diesel Mechanic or many other professions. There are 1000s of IT graduates coming out of colleges who came as international students to New Zealand. Most of them fail to get an IT job and have to leave New Zealand post study within 2 years or have to learn another Business course to extend work visas and get PR. They shout that NZ does not have enough IT jobs. Give them a simple IT project and they fail to do it. A majority of them who do not get an IT job would be those who do not know how to make a black computer screen colourful, or simply fix a BIOS password lock problem in a laptop, or unable to fix a desktop which gave way because of sudden voltage fluctuation. These are the 'shouting brigade' who says there is not many IT jobs in NZ. The rest, who knows even basics of IT, not even high end jobs, get work visas and residence. And the high end IT job knowing applicants get work visas for New Zealand sitting in their drawing rooms in India or other parts of the world. Companies queue after them.
There are many other classes of visas like spouse visas of Citizens, Residents, Work or Student Visa Holders and Permanent Resident Visas. Please look at the drop down menu below 'Ideal Applicants' to know more.
