Congrats Kimoloop!
I hope to be in your situation soon!
PS: if you don't mind me asking, what extra evidence did they request for your partnership? (I'm married but still not sure what kind of details they want) and what evidence did you submit originally to prove your relationship?

Thanks

Thank you JJ,
They asked for a lot of thing as a prove of partnership and also how we maintain our relationship during the period of separation and what i sent was:

- Apartment contract for me and her.
- receipt that prove we were paying the rent
- picture of us together
- Invitations, letters and cards sent to us on many occasions.
- support letter from family members.
- letters from bank that proves that we are sharing the same account.
- evidence that i was sending money to her from western union.
- Partnership timeline and key events.
- Invoices for some gold accessories I bought to my wife
- Evidence for communication on Skype and phone.

wish you the best of luck

Hi, hope that you will be fine and doing well. I am a candidate for SFV and these days working on required documents.

I need your comments on International Qualification Assessment. Actually, I hold two local profession degrees and one international certification listed as under respectively:
Associate Cost & Management Accountant (ACMA)
Associate Public Accountant (APA)
Certified Information System Auditor (CISA)

In academics, I am Masters in Computer Sciences (M. Sc.) and Bachelor's in Commerce (B. Com.). I have work experience of about 10 years that is blend of all area including accounts, finance, audit and IS audit.

Please share your comments on which qualification I have to choose for International Qualification Assessment for SFV purposes. Do employers in NZ prefer to consider the candidate only for the qualification of which assessment has been done by NZQA.

Some one told me that putting too much qualifications is not in favor of the candidate because it leads to over qualification and resultantly you may be rejected to get SFV, do you have any words on it..If level 7 is required and IQA results in level 8 then would it not be a good sign for the applicant??
