Default ITA

I put my EOI in just before the draw of 27th of June and was automatically selected because I have 155 points.

I've received an ITA and am just wondering if I should just get my temporary visa and wait until I'm in NZ before sending in the ITA or should I do it now?

I have medicals, professional registration and police checks all done.

I also have an up to date Educational Psychologist assessment report for Eva because of her ASD. It clearly states that she does not need any extra financial support, just extra thinking time in her exams and some communication assistance, which is on the NZ curriculum anyway.

Congratulations on receiving your ITA

You have 4 months to return it and your medicals will only 'last' for 3m so it all depends on your timings. Personally if you have done everything then I would send it in now and then it's one less thing to worry about.

I went to NZ House in London last Monday and submitted a temporary work visa (plus student visa for Eva) application and permanent residence application giving my credit card a battering as a result!

They said if no problems, the turnaround time for the temporary visa application is approx 10 days.

I'm not allowing myself to get excited or book my flights until i receive confirmation of the visas. I'm not impressed that flight prices are increasing on a daily basis!

Sounds like it's all going well.

With the flight prices , all I can say is be glad it isn't NZ prices.

Not going so well BEVS - I received a call from NZ House London yesterday to tell me that I have been approved for a 3 year temporary visa but Eva has been referred because of her diagnosis of Autism. Her application must be assessed by one of their medical assessors in NZ.

I was particularly peeved because the immigration officer still said, "Oh, but you can fly over and start work if you want." Hmmm yeah, I'm really going to leave my 12 year old daughter here while I bugger off to NZ aren't I? Stupid woman.
