Default Confused Visitors Visa to Work Permit

Thought i had my head round it! Come out on a visitors visa, get job offer, resubmit EOI get selected from pool, receive ITA, get permits, start new life properly. At the moment i have job offer and have EOI selected from pool, the problem lies with the fact that the employer want's me to start work on the 18th Oct. Couldn't see that immigration would move that quickly, so i popped into the welly immigration office today at last knockings. I explained the situation and the lady said fill in this form NZIS 1015 (Application to work in New Zealand) and get employer to fill in NZIS 1113 (Employer Supplementary Form) with covering letter explaining why the were recruiting a non kiwi and why they needed you to start so quickly. Having difficulty fathoming out form and whether i need to send in the medicals with it togther with everything else (police checks, cert's, passport etc) as i expect they'll want that when i do receive the ITA - would the too application's marry up to one another. Anyone else been though a similar process or how did your visitors visa to work permit application go? Any advice greatly appreciated. If nothing else am i making sense? Can i also get my son to start school without paying international fee's

Hi Simon

If you need any further help, try getting hold of Michelle aka Michell&Carl!

They came out under very similar circumstances.

Good Luck, hope you get sorted quickly

I'm sure you have already been told this but, apply for a permit of less than one year, no checks needed. (unless you spent along time in asia like me then have a nice picture of your chest taken!) Helps if you have an employer that will chase up the application as in Christchurch when I applied they were quoting up to 2 months to process unless you are on the skill shortage list. Got mine through in just over a week.

Christchurch office of NZIS does that a lot. They tell you something is going to take yonks and then ring you up the next day to tell you, 'everything is done.' They have the whole under-promise over-deliver theme down pat. Good on 'em.

This is the sort of advice i have been looking for.
Retiring from the Police next year with no real civilian skills. Could get job offer in fraud investigation but only if i can get myself out there. Is this the way to go for me? Visitors visa for 12 months and get a job offer then apply? Its all over my head.

Well, you will given a visitor's permit for six months on arrival. Nothing to stop you from looking for work, but remember you cannot legally work until you have a work permit, work-to-residency permit or permanent resident sticker. If you do get a job offer make sure that the employer has previous approval to hire foreigners or can demonstrate to NZIS that no suitable local Kiwis could be found.
If the job offer is for twelve months or less you won't need police clearances or medicals, but if you decide to extend the permit or apply for permanent residence you'll need the cop clearances as well as the medicals.

Good luck.
