Dear Mr. Yadav,

New Zealand has got very bright Job Prospects. At present New Zealand is suffering from a lack of local talent to fill in skills gaps. So the country needs a lot of skilled workers in various segments and it is very easy for Indian students who study there to find jobs afterwards. They are already used to the local lifestyle and will form a disciplined workforce. Besides, Indian students also have a very good English and Communication skills. The students channel to permanent residence is very popular route and is encouraged by the New Zealand government.

In New Zealand you may be allowed to work while you study. If you are studying in New Zealand, you must not work unless allowed to do so by the New Zealand Immigration Service. You may apply for authority to work under the following circumstances:
(a) to fulfil course requirements
(b) up to 20 hours per week for tertiary students undertaking a long term course of study
(c) during the Christmas and New Year holiday period
(d) on completing your course of study or
(e) as a postgraduate student.

Clause (e) is applicable in your case. However, if you have a student permit, you may be granted a work permit or a variation of your student permit to allow you to gain practical experience on completion of a three-year course, or over the summer vacation.

If your spouse wishes to work while you are in New Zealand an application must be made through the New Zealand Immigration Service.

No definite assurances can be given on whether an application to work will be successful. This depends on whether there are any unemployed New Zealand residents who can do the job which has been offered.
