Silver Fern visa is designed to bring young skilled people to New Zealand. Silver Fern quota is available once in a year via special web site and allows holder entering New Zealand for 9 months to search for skilled employment.
Only places are limited per year. To be eligible to apply for Silver Fern visa you need:. OK this is a theory, and what about some practice? Here comes Ivan, tester from Minsk who have lived and worked in St Petersburg for a long time. Last 5 years he worked in Yandex, Russian web search giant or as we say, Russian Google. Ivan has arrived in New Zealand two weeks ago: In my opinion, moving to New Zealand has few preparation steps:.
Actually the first step is part of the second one, with one exception: First time I thought about moving to New Zealand 6 years ago, but I always had some excuses or difficulties which prevented me from start doing things.
Since that day I started improving my English as hard as I could. That happened early summer last year, six month before applying to Silver Fern. I passed my exam in St Petersburg. Exam fee cost me RUB. Why did we choose Silver Fern? You should be a very talented software developer or very lucky guy to get a New Zealand job offer being in St Petersburg.
So we had two options: The second option consumes lots of money and time — you have to buy some courses, arrive into country, find accommodation and most important not every employer wants to give you a sponsorship. Silver Fern is a some kind of US Green Card, with only one difference it is not granted in random order, but only first entries. I had computer 1 with 5 opened browsers, one of them used Australian proxy; I had my wife sitting on computer 2 with different VPN and also we had an iPad with mobile internet.
Participating in Silver Fern consists of two parts — filling a web forms reminds me Expression of Interest in two pages and making a payment of NZD. After you have paid and your money deducted from your account you may drink champagne because you have got a right to apply for Silver Fern visa and collect your documents.
I heard that usually all places were occupied in minutes. I got mine in 1hour and 10 minutes and all this time we were waiting and trying to see that web form. Some guys use robo-script but it is prohibited by law. Then I had routine of collecting my documents and getting different certificates:. We collected my documents, sent them in London and started waiting. Some people sent their documents in Moscow but I got a letter with checklist saying all documents should be delivered in London.
A month later I got an approve of my Silver Fern visa so I started negotiation how I can get my documents back.
Citizens of Belarus have only one passport so I had no passport with me during that time. Right after I got my documents back I bought fastest and cheapest one way ticket on aviasales for USD. Also I have applied for IRD, opened bank account and got my driver license translated as soon as I arrived.
New Zealand job market has one feature: It is very seldom when a position is directly advertised by a company itself. I contacted a Russian speaking recruiter and she gave me a few useful advices about job interview, what people are keen to hear from candidate and so on.
Also, she told me and Ivan did same thing that candidate should have very good looking view, so I bought a shirt and black colored jeans which looks like a trousers. Also she recommended prepare a speech about myself for minutes. This speech should be about my work: But, unexpectedly right after few days I got a call and was told about a tester position which is opened in some company and a job interview which is going to be hold on tomorrow.
During my first interview which took approximately one hour I spoke with a manager and he told me about a project, about a team and processes and I told him about myself and my experience. I should mention he has a very strong kiwi accent in my opinion. Next day I got a call saying the second interview is going to be tomorrow. Second interview remind me the first one but was focused more on me rather then they. More detailed questions were asked: When I heard from my ex-colleagues about references there were asked to provide I became very calm — that meant process is going to be finished soon.
You might think it was easy. But people are different. We have different life situation, experience, level of English, different luck which are multiplied into quite complicated puzzle. My advice to you is: Life is a pain and suffer, you should understand it, be realistic and prepare to spend several month for getting an offer.
But it definitely worth it! I was extremely lucky, because company were looking for a new employee in terms of my last experience and how I will fit the team but not in terms of stupid interview questions. I mean I had a task to be liked all interviewers and I successfully did it. I spent 10 days to I get offer starting from day I arrived to New Zealand. I had only 2 job interview in one company and did it in one attempt!
