    Default meanings of Skilled Job?

    HI all,
    i need to ask 2 main questions;

    1 - As for PR, it is a condition to get a skilled job in NZ once the residence is approved. If i get a job in other than the category i applied for, would that be considered a s Skilled Job? Like am from Multimedia Design industry and i applied under Film Animator category. Multimedia design is a huge field . What if i don't get a job specifically in film animation and get a job in any other faculty of multimedia design; would that be considered as Skilled Employment?

    2 - There are good chances that my current employer in Pakistan (Head office in US) will ask me to work remotely for them living in NZ. Will it make me eligible to attain PR after 2 years?

    Also if someone could guide me to the exact requirements for attaining PR after Residence been approved, that would be great.
    Any sort of help would be highly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Hi Farhan. If residence is approved, then skilled job is not a "strict" requirement for PR. It is, however, a strict requirement for "Work to Residence".
    The condition for PR after Residence approval is to spend enough time in NZ. This usually means spending at least 184 days out of each of the two twelve-month periods since arrival actually in New Zealand.
    So you can work (or not work) in any job, spend two years and apply for PR.
    Hope someone else can correct if I have missed something..

    This will give you details of PR conditions. Check the "Commitment to New Zealand Criteria".
