Thanks BEVS. You and the other mods have all been super helpful all along and of course all the other forumers too! Thanks!
Yes, me, Clair, Deley and HeatherGirl have had fun chatting on here.
I hope to catch up with them on the other side!

As you've been having a good chat and supporting each other, I've kept out of butting into the conversation . It's lovely when I see a thread like this. Same as that Silver Fern thread. Everyone helping everyone.

Just wanted to say congrats to jjsebba and clair_hannan on gaining your visas & for those waiting in limbo.

Jjsebba & clair_Hanan THAT IS FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!!

So happy its all turned out brilliantly for you

HeatherGirl, hope you get sorted out soon and I certainly know what that limbo land feels like, keep us updated.

Have a question for you which I am hoping you might be able to clear up for me or maybe Bevs will know the answer to.
I have been told (can't remember who by so maybe dreamt it?) that if you ship your belongings on a temp work visa then you will be liable to pay a lot of money in tax to New Zealand customs, is this true??? Are we best waiting for residency before shipping our stuff over????

Thank you all

No. This is not true.

No need to.

* Note. A visa issued for three years is a document which permits the holder to stay in New Zealand for a full three years. This is distinct from a three-year multiple entry visa. This type of document permits travel to New Zealand within a given three year period, but for no more than six months at a time, and for no more than 18 months overall. A three-year multiple entry visa does not meet the requirements to be a document authorising residence.

I was making our evening meal and suddenly thought what an excellent example this is to all others looking on and who worry about medicals that could go for referrals.

We've seen borderline BMI time and time again & cholesterol. We've even seen it for blummin' growing pains for goodness sake.

This time though, common sense has won through . An unknown nodule on the lung is caught in xray and all is still well.

Makes me happy does that and is especially good for others coming along behind.
