Visas/ Immigration (Auckland)

Hello fellow Inter Nations Aucklanders,

Hope you're all well.

I'm seeking advice on my current immigration situation.

Have been in NZ 2 years now. Working for my current employer for the last 16 months. Unfortunately, have just learned that my position has been made redundant. My current essential skills visa is tied to this organization.

I have also recently submitted an independent skilled migrant category residency application which has yet to be assessed/ approved.

Has anyone been in this situation? Any tips and advice on positive way forward? Is anyone aware of the timeframe in which I have to gain new employment before visa (essential skills tied to my company) becomes invalid and I have to leave NZ?

Best case scenario of course to gain new employment and get new work visa + submit new work documents regarding my residency application.

Any tips/ suggestions/ comments welcome :)

Thanks for your time.
