Green List

The Green List provides a fast track to residence and work to residence pathway for highly skilled migrants in hard-to-fill jobs.

The Green List contains a limited number of highly skilled roles that are in huge demand globally and for which there is a shortage in New Zealand.

This list makes it easier for employers to hire and attract migrants for high-skilled, hard-to-fill positions in the construction, engineering, trades, health and ICT sectors. However, these roles have registration, qualification or experience requirements.
