Default Not over yet: first a work visa then PR issues!

Hmmm

Even though the UK passport authority are satisfied I changed my name due to marriage ( more than once actually ) NZIS want even more proof for the PR process! I had foreseen this actually and have marriage/divorce paperwork to hand BUT, how stupid, when I had to prove all this for a UK passport anyway. AND: the temporary visa team accepted the changes...


And now, they want even more relationship evidence. I s'pose it's cos the original evidence finished 5 months ago (our temp visa application) and I also foresaw this and have been saving evidence since... Do you think a wedding ceremony booking in Tekapo next Feb will suffice

On the bright side, our lawyers have transferred our PR application from London to Christchurch, so at least we are on the doorstep now.

I have read in the past that even kids are not enough evidence.

I think it was the rust mark on husbands ankle that convinced NZIs he was shackled

Could you make that Nelson . It's been ages since I have been to a good wedding bash.
