    Thumbs up Forms are submitted Yeah

    Hi All just letting you know we finally posted our forms for n.z immigration I have received conformation that Washington D.C have our papers so I guess it is fingers crossed and wait and hope we are accepted. Like I said I am a n.z citizen with great intention to go back home for good with my partner.

    Yeah. I know it is their busy time so I hope to hear before Christmas .

    Crystal.

    Good job and a major accomplishment. Was it fun to document your life?

    I doubt you will have an issue. NZ is trying to being people back home to reverse the brain drain to other countries.

    It's in the lap of the gods now so let's hope the Washington gods get their fingers out and push this through so you can go home.

    It might happen sooner than you think! I couldn't wait any longer so I called the embassy a couple of days ago to check on my application. (I had to send additional documentation of my de facto relationship. All that was received on June 30 at the embassy.) Two people I can't say enough good things about at the embassy - John Duncan and Helen Patterson. When I talked to Helen, she said they had just finished processing 2,000 student visas, but she remembered looking through my information and that it looked fine and would process everything the next day, and indeed, she did!I received an email confirmation and she said everything was sent out by Fed Ex yesterday afternoon, so I should have it in hand today or tomorrow!

    Finally, a bit of good news!

    Council of Nursing - now that is entirely a different story. I am going on the assumption that all my paperwork has been lost. (Mailed from Auckland in late April, they say they don't have it, the post office doesn't have it and it was never returned to my partner.)

    But at least I can get work of some type when I get there!

    Not one word from the NZNC. They claim they don't have the paperwork, the post office doesn't have it and it was never returned to my partner in Auckland so I assume it has fallen into a black hole. I am filling out everything again, which means a trip back to the school to get the transcript re-signed and stamped (not as bad as it sounds, only about a 20 minute drive) but still taking time out of a busy person's day to sign it. I'll take it all with me and send it certified, registered and any other way I can to document it got to the NZNC and into someone's hands there. Geneva Health International has contacted my references. I hope they can give the NZNC a little push on processing everything once they have the application.

    My list of things to do seems to be getting longer the closer I get to my departure date! I cross one thing off and think of two more I need to do. At least I will be able to get a job doing something when I get there, instead of sitting around. I have worked since I was 16, only off for surgeries and having babies for a few weeks at a time, so I don't know what I would do all day.

    Got my passport stamped with the work visa yesterday afternoon!

    I agree with Cliff in principle. NZIS claims to want expats back and states that priority will be given to those applications. However, our experience discovered that my husbands application was given secondary status to Student and Work Visas. I might add, that all of our paperwork was in order and that the application fee receipt had in bold face type "Partner of an expatriate".

    Default Bad luck for us papers sent back sigh...

    Hi We had all our papers sent back within a week of Washington receiving them. They want me to get a police check since I was born in the u.k I have been a n.z citizen since 1995 and have lived in Canada to be with my husband since 2003. We also now have to prove our relationship.I did not see anywhere on my forms to say we had to prove the relationship. We thought bank statements of our pay cheques would be enough being of a joint account. I guess not.
    so much now to hold up our application
    I think the u.k police take upto 40 days to get back to you.
    Lucky you now you have been approved to go home. I hope all goes well for you.
    I miss my kids and grandchildren so can't wait to go back to live.

    On the relationship it is a preponderance of evidence. Help can be something like a photograph or utility bill or elven an invitation to something with both names on it. The more the better however small. New or old, older is better.

    You have things but don't even know it. Things like emergency contact at an employer with their name. A simple letter addressed to both o you from a friend.

    Hope it helps.
    Cheers

    Hi Crystal

    There's a new system that's being trialled now for UK police certificates. It costs more but there should be a 10-day turnaround. This is where you apply .

    As for proving your relationship, it appears we all have to do this even if we've been married or living together for umpteen years.

    Evidence about whether the partnership is genuine and stable* may include but is not limited to, original or certified copies of documents and any other information such as:

    a marriage certificate for the parties;
    a civil union certificate for the parties;
    birth certificates of any children of the parties;
    evidence of communication between the parties;
    photographs of the parties together;
    documents indicating public recognition of the partnership;
    evidence of the parties being committed to each other both emotionally and exclusively such as evidence of:
    joint decision making and plans together
    sharing of parental obligations
    sharing of household activities
    sharing of companionship/spare time
    sharing of leisure and social activities
    presentation by the parties to outsiders as a couple.
    evidence of being financially interdependent such as evidence of
    shared income
    joint bank accounts operated reasonably frequently over a reasonable time
    joint assets
    joint liabilities such as loans or credit to purchase real estate, cars, major home appliances
    joint utilities accounts (electricity, gas, water, telephone)
    mutually agreed financial arrangements.
