Re: worried about emigrating

Pinks, just to put us right, why not call an immigration consultant up today and get their impartial advice? Then you can tell us all about how you are going to go about this.

Re: worried about emigrating

Pinky, I think that you need to understand the generalisations within these articles. Statements such as 'efforts to attract foreigners' don't mean that these countries are just opening the doors to...

Re: worried about emigrating

Wasn't intending to be pessimistic or depressing, just wanted to give you the facts. You can't just turn up and expect to be able to stay without having the correct visa. It's not like Europe where...

Re: worried about emigrating

If you have a British passport then you do not need a visa to visit, but you and your family will certainly need a visa if you are planning on emigrating there. It seems very risky to uproot your...

Re: Is NZ really that bad?

That's exactly how I feel! I think that if you do the research upfront you shouldn't be disappointed or surprised when you get to NZ.

So far I've learnt that:

- it's going to be a lot more...

Re: Is NZ really that bad?

Thanks for all of the comments - definitely food for thought!

I was aware of the higher costs, but hadn't realised how this extended beyond food shopping. Aside from petrol, is there anything...

Is NZ really that bad?

I've been a long time lurker on the verge of emigrating to Canada a few years ago, but didn't. For the last year or so I've really been looking at NZ instead. I've been out there a few times and...

Re: Rethink?

I also thought that it was fantastic that they turned down all offers of international aid too. How considerate the kiwi folk are.:)

Question Getting legally qualified in NZ

After several changes of plan, we've decided that we're moving to NZ in 2-3 years time (hubby is a kiwi).

We've just got back from a month out there and have decided on the Bay of Plenty -...

Re: Accountant v Baker

Is it worth looking if you qualify for Oz? I seem to remember that if you got an Ozzie visa you could go and live permanently in NZ as soon as your visa had been stamped in Oz. If you qualify for...

Expats - what surprised you about Canada?

I've read through numerous posts about the good things and bad things about Canada and it got me thinking. I've only been to Canada once and only for a few days, but I have an idea in my head of...

Re: Willis Brazolot & Co

I would tread very carefully. I called them a few weeks ago before 'the list' was issued to ask for their advice. They told me that I should still submit a PR application as a skilled worker. ...

Re: Can self-employed go via FSW?

It's actually my hubby. He has previously worked as a Financial Manager (employed), but is now a partner in his own business. His role is obviously much broader now, though he does still manage the...

Can self-employed go via FSW?

Probably a really stupid question, but can someone who is a partner in their own company apply via the skilled worker route if their occupation is on 'the list'?

Re: **** Amendments to IRPA as tabled ****

Re: Leeds Expo Saturday 22nd

I'd be interested to know which immigration consultants were there and what those that attended throught of them.

I'm planning on DIY, but am going to speak to a few 'professionals' up front!

I'm going to attend, but does anyone know if it is just the AB government people that are there, or will there be some immigration companies hocking their wares there too? If it's just going to be a...
