As a general rule, if you have a visa in your passport that allows you to 'work', a
return ticket/proof of funds is not required. It is assumed that you can work to
support yourself, and buy a ticket out if you want to.

The intent of the return ticket/proof of funds is to avoid people arriving in a
country broke, and then the local govt. having to pay to send you home! LJ

Question Return Tickets or not ?

When you go to NZ on a 6 month work visa to gain your extra points for residency do you have to actually buy a return ticket or can you buy a one way ticket and then prove you have the funds to buy a ticket home (if necessary) ??

Has anyone had any experience with this?

What is the usual proceedure?

What proof will they accept?



Thanks a lot for your help.

It's been posted here recently that showing them you have sufficient funds to buy a return ticket is sufficient - eg credit cards etc

Dear Emily

Thanks for the info.

We'll keep our fingers crossed that either they wont ask for anything or maybe the credit card will be ok for them.

Taken a look on ebookers and they seem to have the best prices so far. Looked at both one way which is around £450 at end November and £750 for a six month open return ie end Nov 2002 return end July 2003.

Will definately go to them first when we get a definate date to go.

Hope everything is still going ok your end, best wishes to you all.

Maybe you could post an update on your adventures for the rest of us NZ bounders as we seem to a bit battered by the Aussie brigade....Come on you Kiwis.....tell us all.

Best wishes

Thirded (if there is there such a word??) I'm off to visit NZ in a couple of weeks
(can't wait!) so I'll be able to make a few comments. But until then....

Thankyou it's nice to feel wanted : ) I life here is sooo much better that i had
imagined we are settling in really well, at the moment its just a waiting game, Phil
is just applying for all the jobs and cold calling all the companies but things here
are really quiet on the IT front. I'm sure something will come up.

As for life in general, well i think i am a better mother here, I'm not so stressed
about Matthew, where he is and what his doing. Most big shops and children's areas,
normally at the back of the shop, I put Matthew there and then go and look around the
shop, this would never happen back in England - I was always too paranoid to let him
out of my sight. The fear of something happening to him is alot less here, and
though I still appreciate it could happen, I am more relaxed. Children don't seem to
grow up as fast here - you go to the park and see lots of big kids playing nicely on
swings/slides etc, and helping the littler ones.

Sorry to go on about the kids, but that's where my life is at the moment!

We have a website up and running (mostly), which is intended mostly for family (good
source for photos of Matthew and other bits). If you'd like to have a look, email me
and I'll send you the address! It also has some pics from days out we have had etc.

Emily.
