Salamat po. Very Happy

Thank you, po Very Happy

Nabasa ko po kasi ung add nila sa newpaper dito sa Manila. Fly now, Pay Later plan daw po. Bale ung office nila nasa Baclaran po tapos since 1997 pa po sila.

Bale po isa silang consultancy. Ano po pala ang advantage ng filing an application through a consultancy compared to doing it yourself?

Yung disadvantage lang po kasi ung alam ko, kasi mahal daw po pag dadaan ka through consultancy. Meron po ba itong advantage?

Thank you ulit Very Happy

Di naman sa nilalahat ko sila, but from my personal knowledge, hiring consultants can do more harm than good. Syempre may mga consulting firms na wala talagang silbe, pero kahit yung mga matitino may mga disadvantage din.

Besides being horribly expensive, people who hire consultants have this false sense of security na ok na ok na ang visa nila, which is not the case. Walang palakasan sa embassy, pare-pareho lahat ang application na dumadaan sa kanila, walang priority dahil sa mga consultants. Bola lang ng mga consultants yan.

Also, from my personal experience, if you have no communicable disease, have no criminal record, relatively healthy, have a college degree and can converse well in english, you have a good chance of obtaining a work to residence visa. Finding relevant employment here in new zealand is another case pero as far as visas go, konti lang ang nade-deny.

In my personal opinion, an experienced and knowledgeable (and registered) consultant can help you if you have special circumstances that could hinder your chances of obtaining a visa, e.g. illness or criminal record. Yun lang siguro ang advantage ng isang legitimate and experienced consultant.

Kung gusto mo ng relevant and legitimate information about immigration to new zealand, try surfing these sites:

www.immigration.govt.nz - official website ng new zealand immigration

http://www.iaa.govt.nz/index.html - official website ng immigration adivesers authority, the main body that give out licenses to immigration advisers.

www.seek.co.nz - largest job hunting site dito sa nz. tignan mo kung may demand talaga sa skills mo dito sa nz.

www.nzherald.co.nz - website ng biggest newspaper dito sa nz.

www.expatexposed.com - eto yung website na nagpapakita ng downside ng emigrating to new zealand. di lahat ng nag-ma-migrate dito nagiging successful. nakaka-discourage basahin pero at least alam mo rin ang tunay na kwento.

mahaba na ito. Very Happy hope this helps

Pa-advise naman po ulit Very Happy

Bale graduate po ako ng BS Physical Therapy and local board passer pero di po ako nakapag-practise ng profession kasi limited talga ang work dito satin, most of the time volunteer position lang meron.

Today, I work as a Medical Typist/Transcriptionist and been in this industry for 7 years na dito sa Manila. Possible po ba makapag-obtain ako ng work to residence visa?

Saka pag nag-apply po ba ng WTR kelangan po ba financially capable ka, katulad po ng maraming properties, tinatanong po ba yun sa embassy?

Saka, advisable din po ba na kumuha ako ng skills course? Plano ko po kasing mag aral ang automotive mechanic, kaso nga lang po, syempre dito sa pinas, konti lang ang work opportunity para makapag-gain ng work experience. Magiging edge ko po ba ito even if wala ako work experience sa ganitong field?

Pa-advise naman po, gusto ko po talga pumunta ng New Zealand..

Thank you po... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hmm .. wala akong knowledge about the medical profession here in new zealand. siguro best na lang na i-google mo kung may physical therapy society dito and kung ano ang requirements to practice as a physical therapist.

medyo dehado ka ngayon kasi yung course mo di naman tugma doon sa work experience mo. sayang pa naman kasi malaki ang chances mo sa application kung may considerable experience ka as physical therapist. medyo mahaba pa naman ang process ng immigration so if i were you, habang nag-aaply ka, kuha ka na ng experience bilang physical therapist.

you mentioned na gusto mong mag-aral to be an automotive technician. before gumastos ka sa bago mong kurso, i-research mo muna kung ano ang mas in-demand na skills dito sa new zealand, yung mga physical therapist o ang mga automotive technicians?

i know wala talaga dyan opportunity to gain work experience pero intindihin mo rin yung new zealand employer, not only do they want you qualified, they want you experienced and skilled in what you do, lalo na kung desidido kang maging physical therapist.

so as much as possible, gain as must work experience in your chosen skill para increased ang chances mong makakuha ng visa at ng work dito.

as to being financially capable when applying for a visa, the answer is yes! lahat ng gagawin mo sa application mo kailangan mong bayaran. but i think you should be capable not in terms of property but in terms of cold hard cash kasi marami kang babayaran sa application ora mismo at may migrant levy kang babayaran bago ka pumunta dito sa new zealand.

Merong opportunity as Medical Typist sa NZ. Sa Pinoyz2nz dati merong naghahanap ng medical typist. I just don't know how to go about it.

Yung work to residence usually means two things:

1. Those who applied for permanent residency in NZ are usually advised by the visa officer that their application is "deferred" and instead, permanent residency will be given to them once they find relevant employment. To give the applicants the opportunity to look for work, they are given by immigration a (now) 9 month working visa and the applicants have within that period to look for relevant work (that matches their skills and work experience). No need for a job offer but when you are given the 9 month work to residence visa, time is against you to look for relevant work.

2. Those who were lucky to have a job offer while in the philippines will be given a (usually) two year work visa and while in new zealand they can apply for permanent residency.

All information could be read at www.immigration.govt.nz

Have you tried looking for work online? Here are some websites that you could surf:

www.seek.co.nz
www.nzherald.co.nz
www.trademe.co.nz
www.transfieldservices.co.nz - heard rumours (don't quote me on this!) that hey hired 300 linemen from PLDT to work in their communications team.

doesn't hurt to try applying on your own. good luck!

yeah the professional fees lang ang fly now pay later to protect the interest of the consultancy kc the services are already done (like the client had their visa already then fly without informing the consultancy then without paying the amount to them hope you do understand. Sulit naman ung binayad ninyo sa kanila kc they give your requirement like visa or permanent residency visa. I am not working with EVP anymore since june 2004. during my work with them wala pa sila fly now pay later plan. EVP Consultancy sent many immigrants already to canada australia and new zealand.
