Default The end MAY be in sight

Well this has been the longest year of my life but at last we have a date for the dreaded telephone interview................and I'm poop'n myself.

Firstly our c/o has asked for more relationship evidence utility bills in joint name etc, we dont have any, when we moved house hubby sat all morning on the phone sorting it all out and put it all in his name, and the c/o wants 10 documents. Not sure how many we can get it wont be 10...... bugger!!!!!

I do have a question regarding the phone interview tho considering the application is in my hubbys name what is the likelihood of the chap wanting to speak to me?

Good luck ...when is it?!....there have been lots of previous posts re this so worth doing a search if you havn't already!!!

Also worth having a look here....(again if not seen already!!)
http://www.immigration.govt.nz/NR/rd...tApril2008.doc

It gives you info on types of evidence you can submit....it's ok if things in one name only, its the address that gives evidence of living together.

We have the same problem, we don't have joint utility bills because they don't issue bills in joint names here in Egypt.

About the interview, our agent said they will probably want to speak to me too though my OH is the principal applicant. Although in our case it may be to see if I speak English since we're not native English speakers. Don't worry about the interview, just prepare for it a bit. Good luck!

Hey Kija
Thanks for that know what I will be doing this evening

The site that MnB suggested looking at was a great help should check it out, no better evidence than everyday living evidence!

So hope'n they dont want to speak to me, really crap on the phone, I always try so hard to not fluff it up I end up making a real mess, altho in the email there was no mention of talking to me

Good luck to you too

Hey no prob, I submitted 61 pages of all sorts of evidence (married 31 yrs ...eeek again!!) plus a copy of every page!! this included at least 2 pieces of evidence for every month of the last 12 months.....C/O rang wanting more recent stuff luckily I had a copy of my inventory of evidence and could direct him to relevant documents....all was ok, it had just got out of date order!! ...phew!!

Handed mine in personally at NZ house.....they do a quick check there & then.

By the way...where are you from?? ....am I right in thinking its Somerset?

Hi B
Wow you sound so much more organized than us, tell you the truth I/we didnt expect to get this far.
Yeah my husband works in London so thought about handing in personally but royal mail will just have to do this time.
Aah yes Somerset (Glastonbury) born and breed, but we moved away some 11 years ago now, at the time it was the best thing for us and in some weird ways it has helped us detech from family so moving further now wont really make a huge difference.
Where abouts are you from?
Oh just read you have your flights booked, feel nervous for you! where are you heading?

We had our telephone interview back in June. I was the principal applicant and they did not want to talk to hubby.

I wrote out the questions and wrote my notes to them beforehand on the computer. I then had the documents printed out and to hand as a reference if required. I also had the computer open on the Wiki page for NZ just in case they asked me some NZ related questions e.g. who is the PM etc. but they don't ask those things - it is all about you & your prospects.

I am pretty certain they won't ask to to talk to you but they may ask hubby about what you plan to do. The fact that you have been offered the interview is a really good sign and they want to check how likely you are to settle and contribute and have done some homework.

I'm sure it'll be fine. When is the interview?
