Good day all!
This has probably been answered before, if so, I apologize.
I would like to go abroad to NZ for 2 years+ to temporarily work and live there. This is not an intended permanent move.
I'm just not sure how the process of obtaining a work visa and finding a job works. I skimmed the visa requirements and believe I qualify. The part I'm not sure about is - do I first go over on say a holiday visa and try to find work there, then if a company is willing to hire me - they sponsor me my work visa? Am I able to obtain a work visa prior to going over? Or should I somehow find employment etc. from this side before I'm allowed over?
I'm situated in Cape Town and work in IT as a software tester. I have my eyes set on Wellington NZ. Additionally, would 100k and budget living be a reasonable amount for a single guy to pull this process off?
Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
