Default More Newbies from Devon

My husband, three children and I all went to NZ last year for 3 weeks. loved it so much we now want to live there permanently.

I have family in Upper Hutt.

Have been poking around this site for a while and gleened lots of really useful info and have done replies to a couple of threads but thought we'd better introduce ourselves properly.

We hope to go under the skilled migrant visa, but also have options under the business and family ones too if things dont go to plan.

Would love any useful feedback, particularly from anyone near us, (Rose Ash near South Molton, Devon).

Regards
Alison, Roy, Ellena, Hermione & Brendan

Hi Alison from Devon

I live in Somerset and am at that very early stage of finding out about how much everything is going to cost along with my husband and our 11 year old son. My husband is a New Zealand citizen so i'm guessing that might make
the whole process a lot easier for us. Looking forward to a year of upheaval!!

Regards

Martyc

Hi Alison from Devon,

We're based in Plymouth Devon for the next 3 weeks, then we're off to Wellington!

We applied under the skilled migrant category and started the process in October 2009. I got a job offer (following a telephone and video interview) in March and 4 days later they granted us Residency - Incredibly efficient Visa Officer!

I'd be happy to let you know how we get on.

Carrie

Hi J19,

Thanks! We're ridiculously excited!

I'm in Procurement and my qualification (MCIPS) just made it onto the SMC listing.

Welcome to this informative & friendly forum

We're currently in NZ but will be back in Somerset by June, will be on 'your doorsteps' so to speak and will be happy to share our experiences. In the mean time enjoy posting & planning!!
