    Default Looking At moving

    We are looking at making the move and are doing a bunch of research....... We haver been to NZ before and loved it..

    We are currently in Canada.

    Myself - 37 British Citizen, Canadian PR
    Boyfriend - 32 Canadian Citizen
    2 SOns aged 2 and 8 months canadian citizens, DUal passports....
    3 cats and a dog

    I have a step uncle and 3 cousins and a 2nd cousin all in NZ but i dont think that applies to Family relations..
    My Uncle has a Bed and Breakfast which we can stay in for s long as we need to on arrival in Te Awamutu, close to Hamilton to look for work and houses....

    My Cousin also has a farm where we can stay as well...

    We did a points test and got 180..

    Hoping to sdtart the EOI next month to make the move next year 2013..

    ANyone have any advice on how we canmake this easy for ourselves.. I really want to get ther and settled before the boys start school

    A belated welcome to MTNZ.

    As you say, your family in NZ isn't close enough to you to help in your application other than INZ should look favourably on the fact that you have some support system in place. With 180 points, if you have everything in place for a valid residency application, hopefully it shouldn't take too long for INZ to reach a decision as it's normally automatic with points over 140. Just make sure all your documents are in place, gather any information you need from others ahead of time and pray there are no unforeseen health issues showing up in the strict medical and it should go through quite smoothly. The rest is up to INZ.

    Good luck!

    Thanksyou, we are planning on living withmy uncle for the first month, They run a B&B in Te Awamutu and have a car for us to use to househunt and job hunnt. I may work on my cousins farm as they are expanding..
    Hopefully the medicals should go smoothly as long as nothing has changed since my last one for canadian residency, They are very strict....

    Do you know if the kids have to have blood work done, My 2 year old will have a complete freak out if he has to have a needle in his arm, Bad enough getting his vaccinations done..

    I am slowly getting the EOI filled in and that can be sent in once i get the passports back for the boys.... I just cannot wait to see if we get ITA then hopefully we can start getting organized and sell the belongings we have here and start fresh in NZ....

    I am sure i will have a ton more questions as time passes....

    What about children?
    All applicants including children and newborn babies are
    required to submit a completed medical certificate, or
    have one submitted on their behalf.
    Children under 16 must be accompanied during the
    medical examination by a parent or guardian.
    Chest X-rays are not required of children under the age
    of 11 unless requested by Immigration New Zealand.
    Children under 15 are not usually required to undergo
    the standard blood tests, unless risk or clinical factors
    make them necessary.

    Children under five are not usually required to give a
    urine sample.


    From here.
