Straight to Residence
If you have a job (or job offer) with an accredited employer, for a role listed on Tier 1 of the Immigration New Zealand Green List, you can make a straight-to-residence visa application. Roles on the Green List (Tier 1) include auditors, various engineering roles, a large number of health and medical roles, and also several IT roles and others.

As well as having the required job you must also have the specific credentials listed on the Green List for the role (e.g., particular qualifications or work experience or payrate). Green List straight-to-residence applications can be processed quickly and, in many cases, within a few weeks if prepared and lodged in a complete and correct manner.

Roles on the Green List (Tier 2) include a number of teaching, trades and farming roles. You will need to meet the requirements specified on the Green List for the particular role.
