    Default Hi from Port Elizabeth South Africa!

    Hi

    This is my first post on this forum. I still have a lot to learn concerning the migration process to NZ. At the beginning of 2008 I started with the process to migrate to Oz but during the last month our family decided to go to NZ

    My brother in law is also emigrating to NZ so the two of us are doing it together. I must say, the migration process is a lot different to that of Oz!

    I was "doing it alone" with regards to the Oz migration process. I did not want to make use of an agent as there is a lot of info available that helps you to do it alone.


    Would you guys advise me to make use of a migration agent or can I do it alone?

    Thanks

    Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy and welcome

    Some people use agents, however anyone i have spoken to has advised that you should do it alone. Save the money as you will need it when u get to NZ. The NZIS site is down at the moment, but once it comes back up have a read through the user guides on there.

    Or listen to Motherbear... she is a minefield of info I am sure she will point you in the right direction..

    So how is Port Elizabeth these days.... its been a few years since i was there last??

    Good Luck,
    Caz xxx

    A mine field or a gold mine? A mine field is where you get blown up.

    There was a recent post about if you should use an agent. The majority said "you don't need it" which i agree with.

    Lots of Afrikaners here so you won't be alone but you most likely already knew that.

    Cheers

    Sorry Jimmy, forgot to say

    In what way is NZ immigration so different to Oz? Easier or harder?
