Default (NZ)-native Eng.speakers-what evidence needed?

We're native English speakers, but can't figure out exactly what NZIS requires from us to prove this for our PR application? Any simple way to do this? How are YOU providing proof?? This is one area where the NZ immigration guides give no guidance - why is that I wonder? They seem to assume that applicants will not be native English speakers...

Thanks!

We just put "native tongue" (or words to that effect).

HTH!

The NZIS accepted out University transcripts from a US university as
proof of my wife's and my english language abilities. No questions
asked beyond that.

We just sent a certified copy of our GCE 'O' Level certs (for non-Brits that's the qualification you go for at age 16) and that was perfectly acceptable.
