    Here's a summary of mine:

    Dear [name of visa officer]

    EOI 123456: Application for residence in New Zealand, Skilled Migrant category

    I enclose my application for permanent residence in New Zealand, under the Skilled Migrant Category, to take up the post of [job I've been offered].

    I have included the required original documents, together with photocopies as requested, in support of the information I provided on EOI No. 123456. These are all in a plastic folder at the back of the Application Form. Please note the following additions/alterations to the information provided in the original EOI:

    [bulleted list of amendments and additions]

    A table of documents enclosed is given below.

    [table of documents sent , in order]

    Should you have other inquiries regarding my application or if there are other documents you require, please feel free to get in touch with me at the above address, by telephone to [daytime phone number] or [mobile number], or by email to [my email address].

    Yours sincerely, etc

    * Re the plastic folder - I know they say they don't want this, but they're all different sizes, and it was to stop things falling out!

    Don't know if that's the right way or not, as I only sent it in last week

    Our cover letter was similar to Max's, and it seemed to do the job. I can't recall, but I may have paper clipped our documents.
