Default How soon to submit EOI?

[F]Hi. I'm new to all this, but am seriously considering moving to NZ in 4 years time. Can anybody tell me at what point I should first submit my expression of interest?

Also, is their a website where I can get details of the immigration process - forms, requirements, medicals, police checks (if any) etc etc. This is only my second posting, so I am totally blind on all this. Would a visit to New Zealand House be beneficial, and do they do "drop-in" sessions? Cor, so many questions!

Thanks for any help you might give me,

Mac.

Once you've read all that and done all your research, I seriously recommend a visit to New Zealand, unless you've been before. Visit a few emigration shows, post a few questions on here (you get honest answers, warts and all!) and once all that is done and you've changed your view from 'seriously considering' to 'definitely going', then you're ready to submit. Visit the NZIS website and fill in the on-line points checker, to see if you even qualify for New Zealand.

Don't forget, your reasons to move have to be solid. If you were given promotion at work tomorrow, (more money, etc), would you still consider New Zealand??

Good luck on this long and sometimes frustrating journey........

Yes. You can visit NZ House and maybe have a bit of a chat. They operate a queue system. You take a numbered ticket and wait your turn.

From your other post , it seems you are not looking to arrive and settle for a few years yet. Wait until closer to that time. Once you gain a permanent residency visa , there is a time limit by which you have to enter the country to activate the visa.

I see you are also considering trying out NZ. For that it would be a job offer first and then you would apply for a temporary work visa . If you liked NZ , you would then try for your PR.

As your OH is a nurse, she will need to consider her NZ nursing registration.

As an Aeronautical Engineer you may have to consider which area can best provide you with a job.

Here is the link to the NZIS website
You'd probably be looking at the Skilled Migrant Category.
