  2. Hi there,
    I am originally from hong kong, I have a quick question regarding the silver fern visa scheme. Apart from there requirments that are on the website, is there any work experince restriction for person with undergraduate or higher degree? Thanx

      There is no restriction for a person with undergraduate or higher degree or any background. As long as you fulfill the age requirement, language requirement and fund requirement, you are ready to go. However the competition is tough. There would be 300 places for the whole world applicants to apply. Anyway, just try, if you never try, you would never know…

      Cheers, Landy
