Hi Squiddly!

Once those stickers are in, you have a year to the day, to ARRIVE in NZ. Apparently 1 day over and it's back to the drawing board!

I have another query...once you have touched down in NZ and validated your residency....do you have to stay there for a certain length of time before you can leave again? I was wondering....if I don't get a job offer, I might look elsewhere (Far East possibly) for a job until the recession starts looking up again...

6m to get the visas in your passport, then a year after that to enter NZ

If you get PR you will have a residency visa and a two year returning resident's visa stuck into your passport. Once you land in NZ you get a residency permit in your passport which allows you to remain indefinitely but runs out on leaving the country. Theoretically you could activate your PR then leave NZ for 2 years before coming back. Though you must be in NZ when your 2y RRV runs out or it's back to the start again.
You would then apply for a further RRV but it is unlikely you would get an indefinite one as you would not have lived and paid taxes in NZ for the required amount of time.

Is your PR linked to a job offer?

If so, you will probably have an 18a clause , which means you have to work for the employer named on you application for 3 months before you can jump ship.

To satisfy the conditions of your IRRV, you must be resident in NZ for 185 days for each of the 2 years.

Just as a side note, we have a Kiwi friend who has been working in Middle East. The work has dried up and finishes work next month. Due to tax restrictions, they are having to stay out of NZ fo another 6 months, otherwise they get 'clobbered'

HTH
