    Default Work Visa into Work Permit

    Hello,
    I have finally my work visa in my hands, and I was wondering if there is a special counter at AKL airport, where you need to transfer your visa into a permit. I remember, when I was working in the UAE, I had to go to a special office, where my actual permit was "stored", and where an eye scan was taken.
    Are there similar procedures in NZ or anything special I need to consider when arriving?

    Thought I would let this stand in case someone had personal experience. Can't say I've never heard of anyone talking about a separate counter so I would assume the conversion of your visa into a permit would be done automatically as you come through immigration.

    You are correct MB, when you get to the Passport check your visa will automatically be converted into a permit!
