    Default Bringing family to NZ

    If I go to NZ on a WP would I be able to bring my kids with me? Would they be able to attend school? Or would I have to do my EOI and get accepted to be able to bring them with me? I cannot leave them at home since DH already works overseas. When I move to NZ my kids must go with me.

    Thoughts? At this point I may have enough points to qualify for the EOI (100 points) but am not ready to move until January of 2010 since I finish my graduate education in December 2009. I will have the financial ability to be there for a while before finding a job (although want to secure one asap). What is my best option for moving to NZ with my children?

    If you get a WP your kids can get Student Visas off the back of that for the same length of time as your visa/permit.

    I thought student visas were for college! I didn't realize that they could come over on a student visa for elementary/middle/high school. Thanks!!
