Re: Car Rental

We rented at ACE (http://www.acerentalcars.co.nz/)last year. I think it was around your quoted price ($29 per day for a budget station wagon) but if your Dad finds a $10 option, please let me know.

Re: Vermin

Not to open a new thread, I thought to revive this.

Re: Disgraceful if Overseas Students Allowed to Get Residency in NZ!

This is amazing. There are a lot of British who choose to leave the UK because they believe there are too many immigrants there. And they go to NZ - a pure Immigrant country - becoming immigrants...

Re: IT professional Off shore point calculation

You are. Just prepare 400 bucks (and your credit card). If you are eligible for ITA and PR is another story. We've been able to get 'em all, without job offer, NZ work experience nor NZ education....

Re: EOI Before NZQA

You can go the short way and 'save' $750 initially, but I am afraid that the $400 would be wasted too.

Re: EOI Before NZQA

If your NZ intentions are sincere (and not just "B" plan until you find something better) go for a full NZQA assessment first. There are 2 main reasons:

Re: Dire Prognostications!

Can't comment for pound really, however Greece, Spain, Portugal, etc. are not helping much on euro. So what I considered a poor rate at 2 NZ$ per 1 EUR is now at 1.8 NZ$. And it was 2.5 last year....
