    Red face Urgent Visa/ Advice

    Hi,
    I have been in Nz now for 3 years, work visas for just over 2. We have received our ITA but in the meantime our work visas run out on 22 Jan 10.

    The problem we have encountered is:-

    Husband is a trained electrical engineer with HNC currently working as a factory manager. Our last visa was only granted on condition that he train someone for his job as they believed that there would be someone else available to do it (there was also a low wage issue) - hubbie has an interview coming up late Jan for a production manager for a great company - this job will include maintenance which will fit his qualifications and many years experience.

    We are late with visa application due to funds for new health checks which are due now. We are just scrapping the money together to do that and then of course the visa fees, on top of ITA fee.

    Where do we go from here - we have faxed a manager at immigration a couple of days ago to see if we can be granted an extension giving time to get a more suitable job - but no reply yet.

    Any advice would be really appreciated - we love it here and for the sake of a few weeks being late?!!!

    thank you

    If your work visa runs out then you could be eligible for a visitors visa at the end of it. As your ITA is in progress, you may also be eligible for one of the new interim visas. When you are assigned a case officer, speak with them about your best option but in any case, you shouldn't have to leave the country straight away.

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