New Zealand skilled occupation list
New Zealand welcomes foreign skilled workers who can meet the labour shortage list of the country. The New Zealand Skill Shortage list mentions those occupations that are in urgent need to get filled up by the overseas skilled workers. If you are offered a job that is listed on the list and have got the qualifications and experience to match, then be ready to apply for a New Zealand Permanent Resident Visa. The skill shortages are hard to fill locally in New Zealand and thus, hiring workers from overseas is the best solution for the New Zealand government to fill these labour gaps.
There are three different lists that record skilled shortages in New Zealand and each of these lists experience a shortage of skilled workers in New Zealand.

Best Immigration Consultancy, Achieved my Dream, Successfully Settled in Canada Now
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.
