Assessment Disclaimer

Please note that your assessment is time-sensitive and based on known information for the time that the evaluation took place and, therefore, changes that may occur in the future could impact your potential eligibility to apply for a visa to New Zealand. Your assessment also assumes that the information you provided (such as details about your age, work experience, education, English language skills, health, character, etc.) is accurate and you should understand that any inaccuracies with the information you provided could have an impact on the assessment of your potential eligibility to apply for immigration to New Zealand. Please be aware that your points evaluation is not a formal assessment nor does it carry with it any commitment from Immigration New Zealand (INZ) and that INZ is not obligated to accept the score from your assessment and that your official Expression of Interest (EOI) points score from INZ may not be the same as the preliminary score displayed in your assessment. Also, the points estimate for your education/qualification is subject to your qualification being considered a recognized qualification as assessed by the NZQA or being a qualification exempt from assessment according to the INZ regulations. Please note that in some occupations, registration or licensing may be required and/or a minimum of 2-5 years relevant post-qualification work experience is required. Keep in mind that your assessment points score is not an official or formal score and there is no guarantee of a positive final EOI outcome or of an obligation from Immigration New Zealand (INZ). Our licensed Immigration Adviser that we collaborate with is prepared to use his expertise to guide you confidently throughout the procedure, but the Government of New Zealand will ultimately make the final decision on whether to approve your New Zealand visa application. Therefore, you should not quit your job, sell your home, or take other measures to move to New Zealand until you receive official written notification that you have been approved for a visa to New Zealand. Finally, you should not see or otherwise interpret in your assessment results any official engagement with our licensed Immigration Adviser that we work with.
