Re: TELEVISIONS

Have a look at the "Sky+" thread - it will definitely work if it has AV ports using either Sky, DVD etc or Freeview. May or may not work on UHF.

Re: advice re flight via LAX

You don't need to clear US Immigration unless you are flying Business Class or above and want to use the lounges. Otherwise, you'll be corralled into a rather unlovely waiting area with a drinks...

Re: Sky?

As has been said, your UK Sky+ box won't work there. What you may not know is that you won't even be able to watch what you have recorded on your UK box because the Sky Sofware requires a Sky...

Re: Childcare Services

Have a look at http://porse.co.nz/home/index.htm. Kindy's here are pretty hopeless - they just make sure the kids can't escape, but that's about it - there's no stimulation. Porse is only an agency...

UK Passports

My UK passport expires in August. I have my PR in my passport. I am going to the UK in April. NZ requires that, on entry to the country, my passport has at least 6 months to run.

Re: confused

Thirded - the immigration process isn't so difficult and, as has been said, these agents charge a lot.

Re: Medical referral, how long?

The latest rate drop in the UK ain't going to help exchange rates, but as with all investments, you win if you can afford to choose your time. We've still got quite a lot of money in the UK, but I'm...
