    Default Arriving in Wellington

    Hi MotherBear and Others,

    My WP is approved (after a 60 day wait) and I'm arriving in Wellington on 18th april. I thankyou all for your support.

    - Any things to take care before arrival ?
    - Is it very cold there ?
    - what is best option for initial stay for 2-3 weeks before I move to rented house?
    - As I've got the "work visa" so do I need to apply for "work permit" also ? or this will be taken care at the airport

    Congratulations on getting your work permit approval.

    Immigration will convert your work visa into a work permit as you enter the country. You don't need to do anything .

    NZ is coming out of its summer now so evenings and early mornings will probably be a bit cool. I would advise taking something warm to put on then.

    Perhaps you could stay in a small hotel or a motel for the first few weeks or even find a campsite where you could rent a caravan or cabin. It really depends on how much you want to spend on accommodation and where in Wellington you want to be.
