    Default Essential Skills Work Visa - is an IQA required?

    Hello,

    A friend of mine has been offered a job and is applying for an Essential Skills Work Visa.

    For this particular work visa, will he have to get an IQA from NZQA to prove his degree qualifications are recognised in New Zealand? As this isn't a residency visa or work-to residency visa, I am unsure if an IQA will be required or if his degree certification will suffice.

    Thanks

    The official line is here https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-...-visa#criteria, under the heading Qualifications and/or Experience, and it isn't clear-cut yes or no to IQA. Depending on what he already has, he may not need it.
