Change to selection process for Investor 2 applications
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Until recently, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has been able to select all Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the Investor 2 category pool in order to fulfil the existing cap of 300 application approvals. However, because of growing interest and increased numbers of EOIs in this category, this approach is no longer sustainable.
Clarification to immigration instructions come into effect on 27 November to reflect that only the highest scoring applications will be selected from the pool in order to fulfil the existing application approval cap. The pool draw will continue to take place every second Wednesday and pool draw details, including the number of EOIs and points range selected, will continue to be published in the Latest News section of the INZ website.
从2014年11月27号起，企业家工作签证的政策上将会有一项改变。计划把生意开在奥克兰的申请人将不能再得到20分的加分；在奥克兰外的生意依然可以得到20分的额外分数加分。这项改动主要是为了其他区域的发展。Change to bonus points for Entrepreneur Work Visas Tuesday, November 18, 2014
From 27 November 2014 there will be a change under the Entrepreneur Work Visa (EWV) Category bonus points for potential new businesses.
Businesses proposing to locate in Auckland will no longer be able to claim 20 bonus points on the basis of having been granted formal support from a local agency, e.g. a business development agency, local council or Chamber of Commerce.Businesses will still be able to claim 20 bonus points for being based outside of Auckland.
This change has been made to promote regional development,by allowing only potential businesses in EWV applications based outside Auckland to be granted 20 bonus points.
