Lightbulb On Silver Fern Visa what option to change visa?

Hi

I came NZ on a Silver fern job search visa in January 2014 . I am on a 3 month contract role, as a software tester.My Silver fern visa is expiring on 30 Sep 2014 and the work contract also ends on the same date but there seems to be a possible extension . It is not sure how long the contract can be extended at this point ?

1.How soon will I get the temp work visa , so that I can workout and get the extended contract from my employer and apply beforehand?
2.Is there any possibility to apply for a resident visa,in case if i get a 12 month or 24 month contract from the employer ?
3. What are the other Visa options do i have with this 3 month contract offer?

Any advice appreciated

I think before you can decided on a visa you would need to find out the true offer of the extension

If your job offer fills the conditions then you can apply for any visa which is appropriate. Unfortunately until you know what is going to be offered then you cannot make any decisions.
