"Our decision on your application:
I am pleased to tell you that your application for a New Zealand resident visa has been approved in principle."

just got to send in passports & pay the migrant levy fee!


So can someone clever please now help me out.. after looking at this post http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=705733 I am now confused as case officer states 'New Zealand resident visa' , not a 'Resident Visa with travel conditions' nor a 'Permanent Resident Visa'. Any way of knowing which one we are? Or just have to wait til we get the passports back with the sticker in? (or of course phone the CO)

Congratulations

I think you will be granted a residents visa with travel conditions though a quick look failed to find out for certain. I do not know how long the travel conditions will be for though it would make sense for them to be 2 years same as a SMC application. Come back and let us know when you get those blue stickers It really isn't at all clear on the website
I did find this which may or may not apply to you:
RW2.1 Eligibility for a permanent resident visa
A permanent resident visa may be granted to an applicant under Talent (Accredited
Employers) work instructions who:
a. meets all the requirements to be granted a residence class visa; and
b. at the time of their application for a residence class visa, has employment in New Zealand
with a minimum base salary of NZ$90,000.

cheers Persephone. Could you be kind enough to try & explain to me what these 'travel conditions' are? We can come & go as we please for 2 yrs, or we can't? I understand after a further 2 yrs we would then have to convert [I]again[I] but just not sure about the travel conditions.

Travel conditions are basically the same as the old Returning Residents Visas. They allow you to leave NZ and then return and retake up your residency. Once your travel conditions have expired and you leave NZ then you have no visa in place allowing you to return to NZ and take up residency again.
However note that if the TCs expire then the resident visa part of your visa does not expire and you can stay here forever as long as you don't leave!

If you fulfill the conditions [either now or in the future] then you can be granted a Permanent Resident Visa which means that you can come and go as you wish- no need to have anything to do with immigration until you need to transfer it to a new passport. Basically the same as the Indefinite RRV. You could leave NZ for many years and still return and take up residency unless they change the rules in the future.
Hope this isn't too waffly-hard to explain simply

Congratulations Keeny! Would be keen to know what you get in terms of conditions once you find out.

We are still waiting to hear about being assigned a case officer. The 6 weeks they stated finished on Monday so hopefully we will hear soon

Our application was submitted to Auckland Central but got sent down to Wellington because it was Residence from Work. Was yours sent to Wellington and how long did it take once submitted?

Thanks,
Faye
