New members of the New Zealand forum, introduce yourselves here - 2018

Hi all,

Newbie on the New Zealand forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in New Zealand if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi I am planning to move to NZ in the near future. It will be nice to meet new people.
Hoping to see the best of what my new home has to offer xx

Hi Folkes,
I have just signed up to try and find the best course of action to applying for a visa to NZ, I am 35  and my fiancé is 30 and we are looking to work and travel within NZ for 2 years approximately, with the intention of possibly Staying. WE are both degree qualified, Mechanical Engineer and Zoologist/ Environmental manager, both working in renewable industries with 8 and 5 years experience on top of various other working experience. I am unsure of the best visa application that we should take, and if to apply separately or together. If someone can point me in the direction of a thread to read or indeed give advise this would be great. We are looking to make the move at the end of the year.
Thanks Matt

Hi Matt,

My husband and I currently live in New Zealand.  My husband is a Mechanical Engineer.  We were able to get a skilled migrant visa based on his degree and experience, which also means we came in as residents.  I recommend looking into this option.  Here is a link to my blog which provides more information.  Hope it helps.

Hi Kirsty, thank you for getting in touch. Your link is under review right now so I cannot see it but I'm sure it will come through fine. Where is it you are based. I'm so keen to move from the UK as is my fiancé who it is easier for as she can go under the working visa should it come through. Any help or direction is great to receive. I have even been looking at the whole live in someone else's house option to garden clean etc for free board and food. Just to experience life out there more than a holiday.

Thanks Matt
