The points-based residence visa has been closed to new applications since April 2020.
People who have already submitted an EOI can update their information or withdraw their EOI and request a refund.
On 9 November Immigration New Zealand will select all EOIs at the current threshold of 160 points.
After 9 November 2022, the points threshold for selection will increase to 180 points, to better align with the future direction of the Skilled Migrant Category. EOIs will be selected again on 18 January 2023.

Pass mark : 180 points

The pool mark for the New Zealand Skilled Migrant program is 100 points. However, due to the competitive nature of these visas, a pool mark does not guarantee an invitation to apply and you need 180 points to get an invite.

The invitation mark can and does fluctuate depending on the time of year, number of candidates for the nominated occupation and the current occupation ceiling.
