Clearing more hurdles

The Pinot Noir is flowing again. As related in Lining up the second hurdle, we have submitted our Expression Of Interest to the New Zealand Immigration Service and so have begun the long haul towards securing residency. In the meantime, we have continued to chase up various leads and applications and I am now happy to relate that, in the last 24 hours, we have been informed that:

  • Our EOI has been received and submitted to the pool for bi-weekly consideration over the next 6 months.
    Our police check documents, fresh from the UK, state that we are not criminals.
    SWMBO has been granted a work permit to run concurrent with mine.
    Now we have paid handsomely for student visas, the sprogs can now [legally] attend school.

With that, I’m off to watch All Celebrity Kitchen Makeover with SWMBO and the rest of the Pinot.
