In order to be successful in your quest for a visa that allows you to work towards residency all applicants will need to meet the following criteria:
* Work to residency visa applicants (along with accompanying family) need to meet the requirements for good character and health. In short applicants must not pose a security threat to New Zealand or New Zealand residents as evidenced by police clearance certificates. In addition the applicant’s health must not place a strain on New Zealand’s health care system and evidence of this will be required via medical reports.
* If you are applying with your partner you will also need to meet the partner requirements.
