Subclass 189 NZ Citizen Pathway

In line with the budget announcements made earlier this year, the eligibility criteria for the 189 NZ Citizen pathway has changed, making it easier to apply. Now you must show you have earned over $53,900 per annum for three of the last five years, with one of those years being the most recent financial year completed. This should open the door for many more applications.

It’s important to note thought that those whose employment was impacted by COVID-19 could claim an exemption for their earning levels during the last financial year, if the pandemic caused a reduction of income below the required level.
