Kia Ora Readers,
Welcome to another edition of the Fortnightly Newsletter. This edition covers the One-Off New 2021 Resident Visa launched on 30 September 2021 in response to a mounting backlog for expressions of interest for the Skilled Migrant Category visa and to ensure skill shortages are met over the coming months.
Considering the importance of this announcement, especially for migrants in New Zealand on 29 September 2021, I have talked about its details and FAQs in my two videos.
I have also covered the news of how doors have been opened for thousands of dairy workers to become Kiwis. Finally, the general updates section has covered the veterinary labour shortage that has reached a crisis point in New Zealand.
Don't forget to check out our latest blogs on border exceptions to enter New Zealand and travelling to New Zealand on a Critical Purpose Entry Visa.
Last but not least, we have included two interesting case studies too. The first case study covers how a border exception request got approved despite the adverse immigration history of the client. The second case study explains how the second-course choice was aligned with the second post-study work visa & residence pathway, highlighting an immigration policy gap.
Stay home, Stay safe!
