    Hi Maw, welcome to the forum.

    Sorry to hear about your accident. How long since you submitted your application for PR? If it is quite far along and a decision might come soon, perhaps it would be worth you applying for a visit visa so you can stay in NZ until you get PR. This, of course, would be if your employer doesn't renew your contract. You cannot stay in NZ without a valid permit. Perhaps it would be difficult for you to stay in NZ and not work but, if you don't get another work permit or another kind of permit, you would have to return to your home country.

    If you really think your employer won't renew your contract, and it looks like he may not, perhaps you could think about looking for another job that is not so bad for your health. If you got a new offer, you could get a work permit with the new company.

    These are just a couple of ideas for you to think about, as we aren't allowed to give 'advice' now because the regulations have changed. Good luck.

    If you only applied for PR last month, it could be many months before it comes through depending how many points you claimed (the more points you have, the quicker it should be granted). Even if you got a visitor permit so you could stay in NZ I doubt it would be valid long enough for your PR to be granted. Sometimes they will extend a visit permit if you are close to having your PR but I wouldn't like to say they would do it for several months. Maybe that only leaves you with the option of looking for another job if you think your current employer will not keep you. If you haven't found another job by the time your work permit finishes, you must make sure that you are covered by another visa, which, in your case, would be a visit permit. This would give you some time to continue your job search.
