These lists help to ensure that New Zealand’s skills needs are met by facilitating the entry of appropriately skilled migrants to fill shortages. However, this objective must be balanced by the need to ensure that there are no suitably qualified New Zealand citizens or resident workers available to undertake the work.

Information on the process for the 2013 Review, the Submission Form, and an example of a completed Submission Form are at - http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/general/generalinformation/review.htm  .

The Ministry has prepared a Preliminary Indicator Evidence Report (PIER) for each occupation that has been selected for review. The PIER collates relevant statistical data about the occupation and provides a preliminary view on the status of the occupation. The PIER reports will be on the Immigration New Zealand website on Monday afternoon at http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/general/generalinformation/review.htm

If you believe that any of the above occupations should remain on either of the Shortage lists we strongly suggest you make a submission.
