Long term skills shortage list work visa information

Hi everyone

Could anyone please assist with information?
My husband is working in NZ on a Long term skills shortage list work visa...

Just want to ask when can he apply for residency?
Information I received previously, not on this forum, that he could apply for skilled migrant visa immediately or have to be on this visa for 2 years before applying for long term skills shortage residence visa, is this information correct?

Would really appreciate your assistance.
Thank you

The information you have received is correct. Your husband can immediately apply for the PR, based on the current visa that he is acquiring.

Thank you for your reply...appreciate your assistance🙏🏻
