    Default Few general questions- PR, teaching, and children

    For consideration for PR how do they look at assets?

    I am 38 but I have an annuity that pays 35k USD a year for the rest of my life.

    Does that help with PR?

    Also how does the purchase of property play into it?

    I have a masters in physics and 20 years of work experience but I am not really listed as a needed specialty.

    In the states that have junior colleges and one could teach there with a masters. Do they have such schools in NZ and do masters qualify?

    Also if we are granted PR I am guessing that is different than citizenship. How would my children be treated when they come of age? They are currently very young.

    Thank you

    Hi I can't answer many of your questions but have a look at
    TeachNZ - Welcome ? kia ora for the teaching part
    you don't need a masters to teach science in highschool

    also there are polytech they are probably like your community collage
    with 35k usd you would not need to work

    Yes its not citizenship you have to live here 5 years for that and with US they would not allow you to be dual national
    NZ does not have a problem with that Its the US that does

    But with the PR you get all the benefits you can vote get health care school and unemployment etc I think the only thing you can do is become a politician and maybe not join the army ( not to sure about the army bit though)

    It would be no problem for your children when they were older

    Thank you kiwi guy.

    I have a feeling that the current exchange rate will not hold up, so I would definitely need to work:) I will look into teaching high school. I would not do it in the states but maybe schools are a little different in NZ.

    Do they look at income streams and invested money when you apply for immigration?

    I don't know about the invested money for PR but having enough funds to live on does count for vistors and student visa you have to prove $1000 NZ per month per person for that if no accommodation or 400 if you have accommodation half that for usd

    here is an idea though you could get a student visa and do somtihng that would get you the required teaching stuff you would need that would not take you long to get with your existing degrees but that way you would get a student visa your wife could get a work permit on that basis and your kids would also get a student permit

    I am preety sure that is how that would work
    here is another site that shows all the teaching jobs available
