    Default 6 months work permit

    Hi everyone - I came here on a 2 year work visa which is expiring in Jan 2010. I've applied for a new work permit and I was given 6 months - ONLY. I've been in continuous employment with the company who sponsored me so I was disappointed with the 6 months - as I will have to renew my permit again in 6 months. I have a pending residency application though. Anyone had a similar experience with renewing the work permit, is 6 months the normal time frame?

    thanks
    Lara

    I was under the impressions that INZ was renewing for a year at a time instead of the usual 3 years. Haven't heard anything about the 6 months though. Doesn't give you much security, does it? Let's hope your residency comes through speedily. Do you think it's possible that INZ only gave you 6 months because they believe your residency will come through before it expires?

    MotherBear - many thanks for the response. I've only seen the approval online so I'm waiting for the passport and letter which should hopefully provide more details. I can only hope you're right in saying the residency approval may be coming soon.

    Regards
