    Default 9 month JSV about to end, can i apply for new application under SMC

    Hi All,
    My 9 month JSV is about to end in first week of July. So i have to leave NZ because i couldn't find the job that was required to get my residency. Now my question is the following:


    1. How can i extend the visa?
    2. Can i apply for new application under skilled migrant again? how will that effect my 2nd application knowing the first one didnt go through because of not having the job?
    3. Will that effect my application?
    4. Any other options i have to look for?

    Anyone been through this process 2 times, please advise? i would appreciate it.

    Thanks
    Farooq

    I will be slightly OT here.

    I do not know what attracted you to NZ, but if it is about better quality of life, then any developed country is fine. Given that, 9 months were not enough in finding an appropriate job, somebody like me would say that it is not worth it and let us try some other country. If I have to put same amount of struggle, I would put it somewhere where job market is bigger and opportunities better.

    Sorry to hear about this.

    You can't extend a SMC JSV. It's for nine months ONLY.

    However, you most certainly can apply under SMC a second time - and more, if you needed/wanted to. People's circumstances change, and so does the job market. There is no judgement on you because the first attempt did not work out.
