Skilled Migrant selections deferred


Due to extreme weather events caused by Cyclone Gabrielle this week, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has made the decision to defer this month’s Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) Expression of Interest (EOI) selection for one week. The selection will now take place on Wednesday 22 February 2023.

Please ensure your EOIs are submitted in time for next week’s draw. The March 2023 selection will resume as normal next month.

The change to this month’s selection is a one-off for SMC EOI applicants that have been impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle. People may be experiencing problems such as power outages, internet connectivity issues, or displacement from their homes due to flooding.
