Skilled Independent Visa - Skilled Visa Australia (189 Visa) NZ Pathway
This visa permits eligible NZ citizens those who qualify for a permanent residence visa by applying for a special skilled visa designed solely for NZ citizens.
As of 26 February 2001, with amendments to Australia’s Social Security Act, the Australian visa environment for New Zealander began to change. Since then New Citizens cannot access to social welfare benefits or other entitlements until they obtain a permanent resident visa. Eligible NZ citizens retained their social welfare entitlements and can apply for Australian Citizenship and they are also eligible to sponsor family members.
