Not delivered by santa but by a nice man from DHL. My 30 month work to residence work visa has arrived. I can't believe the relief flowing through my veins. So I can now fly 25th Dec on a present of a lifetime!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL!!!!

Hi Cap
I submitted my papers personally at NZ house on the 3/12/07 and DHL delivered 19/12/07, not too bad I thought considering there was a last minute hitch, mind you the whole process was full of hitches!!!

Well we got close to the 'best pressie'

Our case worker or whatever they're called sent us an email to say the application had been approved in principle and subject to the normal checks would be all sorted early in the New Year.

Here's hoping the 'normal' checks are just that.
