The Essential Skills In Demand Lists:
Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL)
Qualifications must be comparable to the standard of the New Zealand qualification.
Where work experience is included as a requirement it applies to all qualifications listed for the occupation (unless otherwise indicated).
Qualifications held by applicants claiming points based on this list under the Skilled Migrant Category must be recognised under Skilled Migrant Category instructions.
Where a specification lists a qualification in a bracket stating “a qualification(s) in this area of absolute skill shortage is/are”, a person does not need to hold that qualification in order to meet the requirement of the list.
