Regional Policies.

This article is about Immigration Policy but is not a description of policy.



With the intention of encouraging the flow of migrant skills outside of Auckland two incentives are provided:



Residence Policy – Skilled Migrant.


The points available for an offer of employment in a location outside of Auckland increases by a further 30 points.


(But, a condition is attached to the resident’s visa that the job in some cases must be held for a minimum of 12 months.)



Entrepreneur Work Visa Policy.


The points available for Entrepreneur Work Visa applicants planning to set up a business outside Auckland increases by a further 40 points.




Definition of “Auckland”.


There is a legally and geographically precise definition of “Auckland” but in layman’s terms; “Auckland” is regarded as stretching from Wellsford in the North to Pukekohe in the South.
