    Default I am a NZ resident!

    Hey,

    I submitted my EOI end of January, submitted my ITA April 7th and I am officially a NZ resident since yesterday! I am so happy and wish everyone on this site good luck with their application process. I was very lucky to get it so fast.
    Good luck everyone.

    Well done! I bet that's a great feeling. You must have something INZ wants pretty badly.

    Hi Katja

    Noticed that you are in Napier

    I have a offer of a job there and hope to go in December

    What's it like?

    Did you find it easy to meet people?

    A lot of people, even though they also have applied under the SMC, have had to wait a long time to hear that they have residency. Yours seems to have gone through quite quickly, which is good.

    Congratulations Katja, I know just how excited you feel. I just wanted to add that from my own experience INZ in London rock and my case officer was wonderful and efficient. I couldn't have asked for a better service.

    Thanks everyone. I love it in Hawkes bay, even though i havent seen much of nz yet, but hey, got my whole life to do it now...napier is nice, its quite hard to make friends as most people have their own community, but if you are patient it will all work out. ii have been here for 9 months an dmade some good friends, and i love the lifestyle here,
