Skills shortage list

The Canterbury Skills Shortage List highlights occupations currently identified as in shortage during the Canterbury rebuild, following recent earthquakes in the region.

Migrants in occupations on the lists can apply for temporary work visas under either the Essential Skills instructions or Work to Residence (Long Term Skills Shortage List) instructions. (Occupations under the Long Term Skills Shortage List instructions also have a pathway to residence available.)
