My Skilled Migrant Category Expression of Interest was selected from the pool; what happens now?

Your Expression of Interest will now undergo some preliminary verification to make sure that your points were claimed correctly.

Your immigration officer will be in touch with you directly if further information is needed.

If you are successful in this process, you may be invited to apply for residence in New Zealand.

The processing time for the preliminary verification is estimated to be between 2-3 weeks, however they may vary depending on details in each Expression of Interest.

Any decisions will be communicated to you in writing. Some branches will communicate with you only by email, so make sure that you have provided us with a correct email address, and check the settings/content of your junk mail folder regularly, in case any of our emails are being routed there by mistake.
