    Default Alloted time to be in NZ once approved

    Hi Everyone

    I just want to know how long can we still stay in our home country once NZ approved our PR/WTR Visa?


    Thanks

    For WTR it is maximum of 6 months, 3 months to get visa stamped in your passport and another 3 months to travel to NZ.In case of PR you can get upto 18 months,6 months to get visa stamped and another 12 months to travel to NZ to activate PR permit.

    You may stay as long as you like however you have 12 months to activate your PR and having granted WTR I believe it is 9 month period to find a job. Leaving your home country in the 8th month would give you 1 month only to find a job (at least to my knowledge). But I am not sure whether other WTR conditions also apply (minimal wage and skill limitation). I cannot find anything official on the NZIS webpage.
