    Default Software Engineer Experience in non-comparative market.

    Hi all,

    I read through the immigration website but still cannot answer myself.

    I have 6 year experience in an absolute skill shortage area (Software Engineer), but NOT in comparative market.

    Could I get points with it?

    Many thanks and Merry Christmas.

    It depends on other aspects of your case. See here. https://www.immigration.govt.nz/opsmanual/66800.htm SM7.15 Comparable labour markets

    Work experience must have been gained in a labour market that is comparable to the New Zealand labour market unless:

    the work experience meets the requirements set out at SM7.30 for work experience in an area of absolute skills shortage; or
    the principal applicant has current skilled employment in New Zealand or an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand (see SM6).
    SM7.30.b Work experience is assessed as being in an area of absolute skills shortage if:

    it was undertaken in an occupation included on the Long Term Skill Shortage List (see Appendix 4) or that was on the Long Term Skill Shortage List at the time the principal applicant’s Expression of Interest was selected; and
    it meets the specifications for that occupation; and
    the principal applicant is suitably qualified by training and/or experience to undertake that work (including any specific requirements set out in column three of the Long Term Skill Shortage List or that were listed on the date their Expression of Interest was selected).
    Also, SM7.15 b.
    Work experience undertaken in a country not listed at SM7.15.1 (a) above will be assessed as being in a comparable labour market only if it was undertaken for a multinational commercial entity (including a wholly or majority owned subsidiary of such an entity that bears the same core name as the parent company) domiciled in one of the countries listed in (a) above.

    Also, SM7.15 b.
