Default Advice sought on bringing mum to NZ!

Hi everyone

I have been in NZ eight years and have permanent residency. My mum who is 67 is still living alone in Somerset is now considering moving out here to be with my family (Kiwi wife and two NZ born sons) and I. I am therefore writing this post with a view to getting information as to what I would need to do to bring mum out here, for advice on the process and any pitfalls, the costs, info about transferring a UK pension to NZ and anything else people might know from past experience of this process.

Many thanks in advance to anyone who might take the time to reply!

Best place to start would be Immigration website

http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...nt/default.htm

There are two Tiers

Tier one can take up to 6mths
Criteria http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra.../eoi/tier1.htm

Tier two can take up to 7 years
Criteria

There is also the retirement visa but you need lots of money
