Balance the Parents Residence Policy with Parents Long Term Temporary Visa Policy

The government’s new Parents’ residence policy is currently hugely criticized. The government is quite right if they wanted to develop an immigration policy which is meant to favor New Zealand. But this newly introduced parents residence policy is apparently in no way in favor of the country.

At one side, the high salary threshold as set for sponsorship would discourage the highly skilled migrants to select NZ in the future to migrate rather they would prefer to move towards the country like Canada and Australia who have more to offer for their parents.

On the other hand, already settled skilled migrants in NZ would also start thinking to relocate to other countries and NZ would definitely struggle in next few years to retain them.

This predictable negative outcome can be avoided if the government devised a policy which is WIN/WIN for both NZ and for the skilled migrants. This can be possible if some long term temporary visas should also be introduced alongside for the migrants’ parents that I believe would be useful to mitigate the negative impact of this new parents residence policy.

The objective of the proposed long term temporary parents visa policy should be, to not only retain the skilled migrants in the country but also to keep NZ an attractive destination for highly skilled migrants in the future.

To achieve the purpose, Australia and Canada’s types long term temporary parents’ visas can be taken as examples. The parents of the below categories of the migrants can be facilitated with such types of long term temporary visas:

  • Those who are residents for 7+ years in New Zealand
  • Those who are working under current LTSSL occupation
  • Those who can provide long term medical insurance for their parents

3 things that can increase your chances of getting hired in NZ

An individual might possess all the required skills that are needed to get him/her a job in New Zealand but that is not the end of the story. There are still some factors one needs to overcome in order to perfectly fit in into the New Zealand job scene.

Here is a list of factors one should be mindful of in order to be all set for their respective jobs in the New Zealand marketplace:

Get familiar with the New-Zealand workplace environment:
Try to understand the workplace environment of New Zealand, this will be handy for you as it will show your employer that you know how the kiwi workplace functions.

Learn the difference between English and Kiwi-English:
The style and accent of the English language spoken by Kiwis is slightly different than the normal English, so an individual no matter how well versed he is in English, might experience some problems in understanding the local Kiwi lingo. It is advised to get comfortable with the Kiwi English beforehand to avoid any problems.

Try some volunteering work:
Taking part in jobs that a volunteering based is a great way to make connections and to get familiarized with the way New-Zealand works. Also, it helps out the individual to gain experience in skills that may turn out to be valuable when he/she applies for the actual job.


KIWI’s are the happiest people in the world











According to a study, it has been found that Kiwi’s are generally much more content as compared to the population of the rest of the world. In a 2014 study, which included around 10,000 people revealed that around 8 out of 10 Kiwi’s rated their life above or equal to 8 in terms of overall happiness.

About 90% of New Zealanders rated their contentment on the higher side.

It was also observed that for a normal New Zealander, four particular factors play a key role in the increase and the sustainability for a Kiwi, those factors included;

  • Health
  • Wealth
  • Relationships
  • A nice place to live

Beside the above factors, the different stages of life such as youth, adulthood and old age played a key role in determining the happiness of a Kiwi’s. Education was also an important factor to some extent for their happiness.
According to the NZ Statistics:

“Qualification level is a key determinant of the level of personal income. The more qualified a person is, the more likely they are to earn a higher income which could explain the relationship between HIGHER EDUCATION and overall life satisfaction.”

So, according to this survey, Education is something that can be cashed upon by individuals that are looking to get settled over at New-Zealand. The more skill or the more qualified a person is, the more chances the individual will have of finding a more than decent source of income in New Zealand and to be part of those 90% Kiwis that are the happiest people on earth.

ISAS provides you with the opportunity to go forward and grab the chance to get study and settled permanently in New Zealand.
