Default Hello AGAIN

Hello to the very nice person who took the time to give me some advice about my son coming with us to NZ. You told me that he should get, was it a work visa ? before he comes, then apply for ??? when he is there. You did say that you had a business in Wellington if that helps to identify yourself. Please could you tell this silly old women AGAIN what he should get. Thanks Ann L.

Hi Ann,

kiwiprincess is the poster you're referring to.

Pardon me if I butt in. Your son is 27, right? He can apply for a work holiday visa.

I hope this helps.

I think it was me. Definitely a Working Holidaymaker Visa

Nah, i don't have a business - i was probably referring to my workplace though. I do remember your post and I remember noting that my workplace has employed people on a WHV and then later applied for work permits for them.

For the working holiday visa he would need to apply for that in the UK. If he did, later, want to stay here longer then he could then apply for a work permit. Should he not want to stay (and admittedly we are talking a while down the track here) then he could also later apply for a working holiday visa for Australia. He would need to be back in the UK when he eventually applies for an australian visa but at least he would continue to be closer to you!

How bizarre - i responded to this thread and even saw my response. But now it has gone?!!!!!

In case my post doesn't reappear - It was me who responded last time. Your son should apply for a working holiday visa to NZ.

http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...idayscheme.htm

If in NZ on the WHV and he finds that he does want to stay he could then apply for a Work Permit. He does need to be aware that the same rules as otherwise getting a work permit would apply. But the difference is that by being in NZ, and by having a chance to actually find a job that is right for him (ie NOT pouring sav blancs at the local pub) then he is more likely to find an employer willing to endorse his application for a workpermit.

And no, i don't have a business. I am just a lowly worm pleb. But, my lowly worm pleb status does allow me to be involved with the hiring/work permit/hr processes so i am pretty familiar with it in my workplace.

Also, the final thing i said was that if NZ doesn't work out for him he could always apply for a working holiday visa in Australia. Doesn't allow him to work in NZ but he would be closer to you.

He can then meet a nice kiwi girl to move in with. And then, after living with her for a while he can apply for a defacto visa!!

Actually, he could do that now. Tell him to start hunting out kiwi girls on their own WHV in the UK. by the time he gets to NZ he could have been already living with her for a couple of years!!

Thanks very much for this. Hey a nice NZ girl would be great, I've already got a lovely kiwi daughter in law so another would be terrific. Do you know any who would be intrested in a 5ft 10" nice looking, easy going Scottish Guy ? ( hope he doesn't see this !!). Ann L
