The skill shortage lists have been regionalized where aged care nurses, teachers, and builders are added to the existing skill shortage list. Immigration Minister Lain Lees-Galloway said that the lists were intended to build thriving and sustainable regions. In the Essential Skills Demand programs, the Immediate Skills Shortage List had been changed to the Regional Skill Shortage Lists. The minister also assured that no occupation from the list has been removed completely.
Employers who want to invite skilled workers for the occupations not listed on the list can still invite as long as they can demonstrate that there are no New Zealanders available to do the job. The Government’s primary plan is to streamline and regionalize the skills-based visa system. The teacher shortage was addressed by the addition of early childhood, primary and secondary school teachers to all regions on the Regional Skill Shortage List.
In the latest updates, Aged Care Nurses have been added to the Long Term Skill Shortage List while Building Associates have been added to the Construction Skills Shortage List. New Zealand First Immigration Spokesperson Clayton Mitchell said that the refinement to make skills shortage lists more regionalized was the first step in addressing the immigration concerns and encouraging the immigrants to migrate places other than Auckland and main centers. There are 172 occupations on the skills shortage lists and the number of regions had been expanded from six to 15. Also, 14 occupations were reviewed out of 50 occupations that were nominated. Submissions were sought from industry groups and interested parties about the nature and extent of skill shortages in the occupations selected for review.
The revised lists will come into effect this month

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
