    Default question about my sister, anyone??

    my parents are moving to NZ and taking my 12 year old brother along, but my sister wants to go as well! she lives with them but she is 18 so how would this affect her going? would she just get in with my parents as she's their daughter?
    thanks:)

    Default question about my sister, anyone??

    Hmmm

    2 thoughts, 1 good, 1 not so good, neither fact, just ponderings.

    1.) She may be able to go, as the 'weight' of her family would now be in NZ so NZIS would accept her application on those grounds, especially if she is still studying.

    2.) She'd have to apply seperately under the family stream as the weight of the family is now in NZ, but would be granted residency eventually. The application may be fast tracked depending on circumstances surrounding initial application by folks. Also depending on how compassionate case officer is I would imagine.

    Not a great help I know but something to start with. Try emailing NZIS through the ask a question links on the website, they always reply withing a coupe of days and often can give good concise advice. They've answered several of my queries in the past.

    Hi,

    Any children under 25 years old who are still dependant on their parents are entitled to go on the parents EOI / ITA initially. As long as she can prove dependance (usually some form of evidence of living at home) then it should be fine. To be on the safe side, looking into further education would also be of huge benefit.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
