Hi folks,

If you have claimed points for having a job offer and your ITA is successful, I believe you must start that job within 3 months of having your visa issued – Section 18A of the Immigration Act.

Has anyone taken longer than 3 months from the date of having their visa issued and actually commencing employment?

The reason I ask is that my ITA arrived today giving me 4 months to submit it. I already have a holiday to the USA booked for the first 2 weeks in November. I do not intend to start employment in Wellington until early December. This potentially means I cannot submit my ITA until almost the end of the 4 month period.

Paul.

I'm sure I'm right in saying you have a year to take up residence once visa issued. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will put you right. Your employer in NZ is not notified that visa issued, you keep him/her informed.

It depends on the type of Visa. Tony had a job offer and received a Residents Visa when we contacted Immigration on arrival in NZ he was told he didn't have to accept the job and could find employment anywhere.
