    Default Open Work Visa to Essential Skills Visa - Can I Keep My Job?

    Good morning all,

    I have an open work visa based on partnership until August, but my circumstances are now such that I cannot renew this visa, so I will have to change to essential skills visa. I am currently employed in a job that I enjoy. Myself and my manager are keen to continue my employment. But because I am changing to an essential skills visa, does that mean they have to relist my job to prove they searched for Kiwi workers? Is there any way I can obtain an essential skills visa and avoid this hoop?

    Yours,
    Michael

    Exact requirements for the Essential Skills visa vary depending on the skill level of the job, and your own qualifications. For instance, see here. http://onlineservices.immigration.go...nual/45676.htm
