Visa verification upon arrival in NZ?

I arrived in NZ with my resident visa in my passport, but it felt a little anti-climactic upon arrival. I wasn't exactly expecting a song and dance, but thought there would at least be one or two...

Re: How important is shipping insurance?

I'd be fine with secondhand value to be honest, since most of our stuff is secondhand anyway. Itemising everything we own is a bit depressing, how all this junk just adds up. Especially when valuing...

Re: How important is shipping insurance?

Had a look at the photos and, while I agree that they're horrifying, the statistics on it don't seem too bad. I'd be heartbroken if it were to happen to me, but I feel like that's always the gamble...

Re: Partner of NZ citizen residence visa

I received this letter from TNT too for some documents. Not anything I would consider "valuable", just convenient to have a copy of. But apparently a copy of my current tenancy agreement alone is...

Re: When to start the job search?

haha Thanks, I'll bear this in mind. 90% of my wardrobe is plain black, so I guess I better hit Primarks for some summer dresses and I should be all set for the full uniform. Reluctant to cut my hair...
