NZ Govt tight­ens up on im­mi­gra­tion

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Apia: The New Zealand gov­ern­ment is tight­en­ing im­mi­gra­tion num­bers, af­ter weeks of pres­sure over record high num­bers of new mi­grants and work­ing visa ap­provals. The higher end of the plan­ning range for new mi­grants for the next two years will be re­duced from 100,000 to 95,000. Those com­ing to New Zealand un­der the skilled mi­grant cat­e­gory will have to have 160 points be­fore get­ting res­i­dency rather than 140. The num­ber of peo­ple al­lowed en­try un­der the fam­ily cat­e­gory will be more than halved from 5500 to 2000.
