    1) New rules. Silver Fern requirements section if English Language also updated with new requirement.

    2) IPENZ may not be required for Silver Fern. But better if you are in an Engineering profession to avoid any problems in future SMC application.

    3) Required

    4) Financial proof is one of the requirement of Silver Fern visa and always required.

    Hi J&M

    Are you sure the alternatives not changed with respect to new rules. If you look at it again, it basically says that alternatives like studying in English is only acceptable from certain countries. Earlier rules was nothing specific to any country education.

    So now IELTS mandatory unless you have degrees from certain countries and studied in English.

    Regards

    The part about the different countries is different. But here https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas is the INZ website home page with its banner signalling that there are changes, and here https://www.immigration.govt.nz/abou...anges/nzrp-smc is the page which you click through to, where you will find this.
    From 21 November 2016, Immigration New Zealand will accept a wider range of English language tests.

    The new tests that INZ will accept are:

    Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet Based Test (TOEFL iBT)
    Occupational English Test (OET)
    Cambridge English: First (FCE) and FCE for Schools
    Pearson Test of English: Academic (PTE: Academic)
    (my bolding)
    So you see, there are still some changes to be made to the operational manual, with regard to the acceptable qualifications from 21st November onwards.
