Default whv and beyond?

Hi guys

I am considering moving to NZ, but I am going to go there on a whv with my misses so we can get employment (im a chemist shes a teacher), what happens if I get a job and achieve permenant residence , would my misses have to leave the country after the year is up or could she stay as my spouse (or vice versa), we have lived together for 2 years, threrfore does this count as defacto married?

I really don't want to be in the situation where one of us can get work and other can't then they have to go home it isnt a option.

If you qualify for PR, your partner will qualify for PR as well automatically. You will have to prove your relationship, if you are not married you will have to show good proof of being a de facto couple. Evidence of living together, joint bank accounts, etc may be required.

I think both of you will have to get your whv independantely, but after that you will be able to include your partner in any PR application you submit.

I believe you only have to prove you've been living together for 12 months.

I would also say if your serious about NZ, then get the misses to start the ball rolling for teacher registration with the teaching council, without it she cant teach, and it does take a while to get the registration, approx 3 months, can't remember exactly. If you want more info on that PM me and I'll dig it out.

cheers guys thats reassuring, we have joint bank accounts and rental agreements for two years so that won' be an issue. PLanty you have PM.

Now in my book this is a big no no, and one I aim to rectafy but I haven't actually been to NZ, I have spent a long time in auS 18 months, now i KNOW THIS IS GOING TO BE BIASED BUT DO YOU RATE nz MORE THAN AUS, AND IF SO WHY?

I was just reading about some of the other spiders on that link, and believe me I won't be saying a word, was just on the tunnelweb :scared:

Oh the fun we're going to have

None of them will kill you, from what I can see, and there are no snakes....I don't think. It'll be fine

Whatever bites you on the bum, it's got to be safer than walking round Bolton these days!

Can't wait to scarper myself

well I have sort of bumped this back to the top,

has anyone done the WHV to permenant visa while in AUS?

would like to see if it is possible to do this and how much of a risk is it. hopefully my misses woun't be messed around because she is a teacher.

I'm also looking at going WHV to PR - my partner and I can't prove we've been living together for 12 months on paper so that's the way it's got to be. You could try asking an immigration specialist what they can do to help you, but you don't then have to use their services ;-)
