Immigrate to New Zealand from USA
New Zealand is famous for its favourable climate, picturesque beauty, and balanced lifestyle. Moreover, the land of Kiwis has a lot in common with the United States of America, be it the popular culture or the common language i.e English. People who have already immigrated to New Zealand from the US find the country peaceful and relaxed, and people-friendly.
Every year many people move to New Zealand from US for job opportunities, to retire or to study.
Here is all you need to know if you are moving to New Zealand from the USA.
Popular New Zealand Visa Options for USA citizens
USA Working Holiday Visa
If you are 18 to 30 years old and a US citizen, then you can apply for this visa. The USA Working Holiday visa allows you to work in New Zealand for up to 12 months and study or train for up to 6 months. It is an open work visa that allows you to work in any role, for any employer, or anywhere in New Zealand. If your partner wants to accompany you to New Zealand, then they will have to apply for their own visa.
Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV)
If you have a job offer from a New Zealand employer who is accredited to hire globally, and you are skilled and well-qualified for the job, you can apply for the New Zealand Accredited Employer Work Visa. The AEWV provides permits to foreigners to stay and work in New Zealand for up to 3 years. It also provides immigrants with an opportunity to study for up to 3 months within a 12-month period.
Getting an AEWV can be highly beneficial for immigrants as it leads them to the Straight to a Residence Visa or after 2 years to the Work to Residence Visa if their job role comes under the Green List of New Zealand. If met certain requirements, you can also apply for a Highly Paid Residence Visa.
Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) Visa
If you are below 55 years of age and have the skills that will boost New Zealand’s economic growth, then you can move to New Zealand from USA on the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) visa.
In order to get this visa, you have to first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) which will have detailed information about your qualifications and experience. This visa will allow you to stay in NZ indefinitely.
Partnership-based & dependent child Visas
If you are in USA and your partner lives in New Zealand, a partnership based visa is all you require. USA citizens whose partners hold a New Zealand visa or the partners are NZ citizens or residents can apply for a partnership-based visa. This visa is meant to help you join you partner in New Zealand. Dependent children can join their parents with either a student or visitor visa.
