Changes in immigration policy
The government of Jacinda Arden, Prime Minister Kiwi at just 37 years old has implemented a series of changes in her immigration policy that can be very interesting if you are considering studying in New Zealand .
And above all, if your long-term intention is to get the residence to live in New Zealand permanently.
Until now all those who studied a career, a postgraduate or a master in New Zealand had an extra year of visa to find their place in the New Zealand labor market, where the unemployment rate remains at enviable lows for many countries, with a 4.4%.
The fact that the rate is so low is one of the main reasons why young people from all over the world decide on New Zealand as their bet for the future (apart from good salaries and dream landscapes).
A change in immigration policy proposed by Minister Iain Lees-Galloway means that those brave people who decide to make the leap to New Zealand to study a career or specialize in your studies do not have an extra year of visa to work, but with up to three extra years.
And with this, the possibility of accessing permanent residence in New Zealand for 2020 is presented . E n the last 5 years, 35% of students in masters or graduate, decided to apply for permanent visa.
In the case of a postgraduate degree, it is necessary to study a profession that is required in New Zealand within the Long term Skill Shortage List where you can find more than 50 demanded professions.
