Urgent help with getting my children over.
 
Hi every one

i really hope someone may be able to help:confused:

We will be coming to New Zealand before December this year using our Australian PR status...

Since we have had our Oz PR granted we have had 2 children (a 3 yr old and a 5 month old) which we now need to gain entry.

We contacted the Australian immigration to see if we just add them to our visa or how it works even? what they told us is that they will need to be sponsored by us:blink: which means 7-8 months and £1100 each:thumbdown:

So the other huge problem is our Australian PR runs out the 11th December and thats 8 months too:thumbdown:

Does anyone know how a child born after a NZ visa is granted works does this differ from Australia?

Re: Urgent help with getting my children over.
 
What Australian immigration told you is mainly correct, except that the same fee should cover both.

Your children don't have any status in New Zealand either, unless you sponsor them to migrate to NZ. Start at http://www.immigration.govt.nz

As your Australian PR visa runs out in December, you do understand (I hope) that you won't be able to get back into NZ after then (even after a vacation) unless you can get either an Australian or New Zealand Returning Resident Visa. Have you looked at these requirements?

People who try what you want to do run a strong risk of being left without status in either country => which leads to a one way trip home.

Thanks for the reply JAJ.

I was puzzled about the children but now realise they were born in the UK & were never part of the Australian PR application..

To update for anyone else looking in.

You are currently in the UK with your children.
Your parents are retired in the UK?
Your sister lives in New Zealand I think.
You applied for and gained Australian PR for yourself and your partner but this runs out December 2011.

NZIS sponsor your children

thanks for your replys guys:)

@ Jaj yes we do realize the risks with coming this way (the back door so to speak);)

And Bevs

Yes on all counts.. our Inlaws are coming out too but thats another story:lol:

For peace of mind that could be a good idea.

Make sure the person you deal with is the one holding the IAA license. & not some lacky.

Peter Croxson is bugger all to do with me but has had good result for people I know.

Ok we got a reply and all seems good:D

So our children will get 6 month visa on entry as our dependants.
Once we are able to prove we are living/working etc we can apply to sponsor them.
If this is not granted before thier 6 month visa lapses we can get them a interim visa
(granted to people whom have yet to recieve word on a application).

We will be meeting our agent soon to clarify and arrange my EWRB registratio:eek:

That doesn´t sound very generous, British Citizens can stay 6mths without a visa :confused:

True but unless onward travel is specifically waived on whatever visa they get issued they´ll still need that.
