Great news for International Students as New Zealand extends the student work visa to 3 years
The post-study work visa issued by the NZ govt helps international students to complete their graduation with extended study visas for up to 3 years.

Recently, the New Zealand government has extended the validity of student work visas to 3 years. International students, including Indian students who complete their higher studies in New Zealand, can stay and work in the country for the new validation period. Additionally, if an international student obtains a seven-level degree, then he/she can be eligible for an NZ PSW visa. However, the qualification of the student needs to be on the list to become eligible for the PSW visa. Students who have plans to study abroad will undoubtedly leverage the benefits of this new rule. 

If you want to apply for this specific visa, you need to complete your graduation from a university. This visa will allow international students to work and live in New Zealand for more than three years. Nevertheless, the period allowed to international students will depend on the duration of their academic background. 

With the help of the NZ PSW visa, international students can take jobs from any employer in New Zealand as per the occupation from their academic background. Additionally, they can also find occupations as per their relevant field of study. 

However, keep in mind that the NZ PSW visa from the New Zealand government can be applied for one time only. But what will happen if you apply for an NZ PSW work visa before the changes? In such cases, you will be eligible for NZ PSW which would help you with work permits in New Zealand.
