Decision Making Criteria for Post Study Work Visa - Employer Assisted

UB made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for UB to read recent responses and update the status.

From: UB

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Hope you are in good health and wealth!

Referring to Visa fact sheet for post-study work employer-assisted Visa (https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zeal...)

I request the answer of following questions under information act,

1) What is the decision process of granting Post Study Work Visa - Employer Assisted, specifically for study's subjects relevancy criteria?

For Example, Adam has studied, let say Graduate Diploma, Level 7 with subjects into marketing, strategies, consumer behavior and industry project with the same company he has got the job offer from. However, the job offer is for ICT Sales Assistant (ANZSCO 621211) in a Telecommunication company, job duties as mentioned in ANZSCO.
On what decision model, the Work Visa - Employer Assisted, will be approved or disapproved, taking single criteria of the relevancy of the job with the studies into consideration and ignoring other criteria for now?

2) As per the clause on the website of INZ, (Source: https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zeal...)
"If you have more than one acceptable qualification, your job can be relevant to any one of them."
Assessed overseas qualification - level 7 can be considered as an acceptable qualification?
If YES, then relevancy of job with the studies could be with either of two (New Zealand level 7 qualification and Overseas assessed qualification level 7) or both?

Asking above questions under information act, to know about immigration officers eligiblity criteria specifically for studies relevancy with the job.

Your assistance would be really appreciated, Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
UB
