Default Which documents?

hi guys,

we`re applying for a partnership visa. All our documents are ready, waiting for the UK police certificates. Once we get them everything will be ready to go.
The thing is we need to certify copies some of our documents from the justice of the peace, but i`m not sure which ones? so far we have:

-My application form
-My Partners sponsor form ( which says we need to certify )
-Our partnership evidences ( e-mails, msn files, joint bank statements, rent contract etc.)
-Reference letters from friends,
-Police certificates
-Medical certificate
-passports and photos..


Cheers

Hi Android,

You only need certified copies if you are not enclosing originals. If you are sending originals, then regular photocopies are fine. Hope that helps.

Hiya, not too sure if the partnership visa requires the ITA, but we only had too send certified documents if originals were not sent, otherwise all original documents had to have a copy sent with them. I would have thought things like bills, letters from friends etc just send the originals and a copy.
I know it may sound silly but try reading the form again to see if it states what they need, only saying this as its something I,ve done and I'd swear I'd read it several times.

Hi the ITA is what you get if your EOI(expression of interest) gets selected on line. Its basically a large form telling you what documents and evidence you need t6o send in. But like I said your visa application may well be different.
Yes, if you send an original also send a copy.

hi, i`ve never heard of ITA before, is it related to partnership visa? Also do i have to copy my and my partner`s application form as well or just the copies of original documents (like: police certificates, relationship evidences, joint bank statements, etc)

And also i`m a Turkish citizen, i`ve checked the immigration website but couldn`t get a certain info, does Turkish citizens have to pay for the residence permit? It says returning residence no fee but i`m a returning residence? Sorry i know i`m being difficult but this is so important for us...

Cheers

where did you find out about the partnership visa? I am not an expert on visas, are you sure there is such a visa. From what you have said a work permit seems the most likely, and you will then have to prove your partnership. Have a look again on the NZIS website things might seem a bit clearer then.
Sorry cant be of more help

Default Re: Which documents?

i`ve called them again yesterday and they told me the same thing "apply for a work permit and at the same time apply for a residency cuz residency takes up to 12 months..." This is totally different than i read and thought... That means another $700 for the residency and $280 for a work permit which i`ve already paid lots for all my medicals and all the translations etc. thank god JOP is for free!
So now the thing is am i going to apply for a work permit or a visa? They said i can apply for both but i have to pay $280 for each! Do you know the differences and which one i should apply for? And she said a work visa should last for 2 years but it depends to the immigration officer, could be less than 2 years.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I take it you have a job offer in NZ?
I cant tell you what to do but if you apply for work permit after it expires you will then have to apply for permanent residency- if you intend staying. If you just plan on staying for a short while then I would have thought go for the work permit.
Just a few points to consider
Medicals are cheaper to have done in NZ.
If you have a job then your visa will be prioterizied.
Also when did you get your medicals done? Like the police certificates they will only be valid for a certain amount of time, but cant remember if its 3 or 6 months from the date you recieved them, or send them to immigration.
Also have you tried doing a search on here for 'work permit'? I am sure there is a thread I have seen, you may get more help and advice that way.

No i`m applying for a work permit under the partnership policy, and i reckon i don`t have to have job offer or anything. And i`m applying for a work permit which i consider that i`m already in NZ and don`t need a visa. and i`ve asked for a two year permit, and also at the same time we`re gonna apply for a residency under partnership policy.

I hope we`re doing everything ok, cuz once one thing goes wrong everything will come after!!

Cheers...

Well considering youre already in NZ and this is the route that immigration have sent you down, then all must be ok.
