I read on another post that your OH is a midwifer so for NZ midwifery registration you will need the following:

1. NZ midwifery application form here's the link http://www.midwiferycouncil.org.nz/main/Overseas/

within this you will need to get
1. Get police certificates (takes about 40days to come through) get 2copies, one for Midwifery council and one for immigration
2. good character references form- a Midwife, your GP, a professional
3. NMC verification of registration
4. if newly qualified a university transcript (if not then i think you need portfolio proof, but not sure on this)
5. Certified copies of birth and marriage certificate (if not married then think you need a certified copy of your passport)
6. Completed self assessment forms

This sounds horrendous i know...suppose it is a little bit but needs to be done and if you're organised doesn't take long

once you've done all this and get your NZ midwifery registration you'll need a job. Now time scale for this depends on where you want to live, so could be anything from 1-12 weeks

once you've got a job you can get your Medicals and x-rays sorted...wouldn't recommend you getting them done before getting a job as they are only valid for approx 12 weeks i think

once you've had a sent to you your contract you'll be able to get all your paperwork together that is needed for immigration. If you take it all to the London office i think it takes between 1 and 2 days to get an answer...if you send it i think it's about 2-3 weeks

I take it you'll be going in on a general work visa? which needs to be submitted with your OH's visa.

Please do not take my word for the accuracy of this...please do your own research for your particular circumstances.

hope this helps

We submit our EOI in October, ITA in November and got the go ahead in December and we leave in 10 days - although there was months of preparation before we got to that point. We are both nurses and applied for our jobs last July, the fact that we had jobs helped us with our ITA. Also tell your OH to get the NMC to send transcripts of training to the Nursing Council of NZ instead of plac of training / study. The University where she did her training will charge and in our experience they take ages - we ended up getting the NMC to do ours after waiting 8 weeks for the Uni o do it (and we are still waiting!). She can e mail the NMC and they will do it directly. It is worthwhile getting professional and character references etc now so they are all on hand when you need them. The better prepared you are the smoother it will be - where are you planning to head for?

Hi,
I take it true red refers to Liverpool FC? My OH (DannyF) will be your best mate now - he tends to go on the sport forum and swear at Mancs. I'm sure you will be hearing from him soon!!

aaaaaaaaa, true red, wondered what that meant. My husband is very much a true red! He certainly was very red faced the other night when some guy called dudek let all the balls in. Tsk, tsk.

What's the difference between a taxi driver and Dudek?
A taxi driver only lets 5 in

Danny told me that one so he can't give me a hard time - I suport Sunderland so that's hard enough!

The trouble is, although Steve will appreciate that joke, it'll lead to another few hours straight of his talking about the match.
