These visas are for temporary stays. The duration of the visa depends on the terms of your job offer and on the labor market conditions in New Zealand.

How it works
You will be able to live and work in New Zealand for up to five years depending on terms of the job offer.
Is your job on a skill shortage list?
The Essential Skills in Demand List is New Zealand’s occupational skill shortage lists. If you have a job offer that appears on one of the lists, and your qualifications and experience match, you can apply for an Essential Skills Work Visa.

Andrew and his team is exceptional in their work, they carried and coached us throughout the whole process, preparing us for what is to come and how to handle the process. I can only thank Network Migration in the way they treated us. All our worries, questions and concerns were dealt with in our time frames and with the utmost respect. I will refer Network Migration to anyone who is serious about emigrating. We utilized their service through word of mouth after potentially losing the opportunity to emigrate due to utilizing another company who was all but professional. Andrew and his team saved the day in our hour of need with their professional support, guidance and help with communication.Riaan,
Andrew and the team at Network Migration are fantastic. They are extremely knowledgeable and honest and they find the best option for you based on your circumstances. They always get back to my emails no matter if I've asked the same question multiple times. After-Sales care is second to none. Even after making the move I can always rely on the team to answer any questions I have. They made my dream of moving abroad come true and I can't thank them enough. I highly recommend using Network Migration.M. Migos,
Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for everything you have done for our family. We are forever grateful for you and your team helping us make this such a smooth process. Thank you thank you thank you! We look forward to using your services for when we need to apply for permanent residency.van Zyl Family,
I just want to say thank you so much for everything you have done for us so far. Whether our visa’s come through or not now, you have been an enormous help! I am only truly feeling the stress of this process right now, and all of that stress is linked to our medicals, which is something neither you or I have any control over. But this is the first time I have felt stressed. Up to now, you have definitely made life a lot easier. Loren Holtzhausen…,
We heard about Network Migration Services through our friends who are now also living and working in New Zealand thanks to them. The immigration process can be a daunting and expensive move, so we decided to go with a reputable company to make the process easier on ourselves. Once we signed up, our Network Migration case officer was always on hand with our many questions and phone calls and nothing ever seemed like too much trouble for her. The most overwhelming part of the process, besides the obvious amount of paperwork and documentation, was when the medicals were referred to the New Zealand medical assessor. The waiting was very stressful but we knew that it was part of the visa application as our case officer did prepare us for the possibility. Our first tip to anyone considering migration to New Zealand would be to phone Network Migration Services!!!…,
Hello from Aus ….We have just become Citizens in March 2014, and I just had to somehow let you know, that you started this journey for us, by guiding us every second of the way and setting us on the right way. You know, there is so many migration agents out there, but none as warm and friendly, yet brutally honest (in a good way), that I have come across, as you my friend. You deserve all the accolades. I have steered many a prospective immigrant your way my dear mate, because I know, if nothing else, you would be able to truly inform and assist better than anyone I know….. ….True Wealth is living your dream, we couldn’t have done it without our Master Mind Group of which you guys were an integral part. To other prospective immigrants, there is life after Africa here, and the African Sunset is just as beautiful in Australia. Life is too short to ponder too much, just do it but do know it’s not heaven over here but pretty damn close…Adriaan Luus,
I thought I would drop you an email to thank you for your assistance in helping us with our Australian Visa applications. We are finally departing on the 4th of June 2014 to start our new adventure in Australia and are very grateful to the Network Migration Services team for making the process such a smooth one. Your time, knowledge and effort have helped us to change our life path and we know that there are wonderful opportunities awaiting us. All the best of success to the Network Migration Services team and the lives it will change moving forward!…,
Thanks very much!!! I really appreciate all your help on this! From that seminar you presented here in East London (which we attended) to now… our lives have changed so much and we’re not even out of the country yet…. It’s been an enriching (not monetary) experience for us… having to go through the accreditation, studies, travels to Australia etc. etc. etc… now for the hard work and the wish for the wish to come true…. Thanks very very much!!! An accolade for Anastasiya…. She’s been wonderfully helpful and patient with me…. For me she is a true asset to your business….…,
I would just like to express my thanks and gratitude for the professionalism and efficiency in which you helped me in obtaining my visa for Australia, as well as all the help and questions answered along the way.

“We heard about Network Migration through friends of ours who also made use of them to obtain a visa for Australia. We paid our fees in June 2011 and obtained our Skilled Migrant visas in August 2012 already (only 14 months later). During this time they always assisted us in a very professional and timeous way (always within 24 hours). They were very patient in answering all my questions (a lot of them!) and assisting me with my queries and concerns. I would like to thank Anna and Sanjeev especially for all their help to assist us in obtaining our visas in the most stress freeway. I can really recommend Network Migration to anyone wishing to immigrate to Australia!”…,
I have found Networkmigration to be very professional and well organised, as an immigration agency. They stay in constant contact with one, and answer queries that one may have, in a quick and efficient manner.They also stay abreast of changes that happen, and keep one informed thereof. I would highly recommend this agency for your move to New Zealand.Mario Franzoni,
