We now have Permanent Residency in NZ!!

One week after submitting our ITA we received a letter from the NZ Immigration Service confirming that we are being granted Permanent Residency.

That means that we can stay in NZ indefinitely and can leave and return to the country as residents. This is what we have been aiming for since June 2004. All in all, from submitting our initial Expression of Interest in late July, to being selected from the Pool in August and receiving our lovely PR stickers in our passports took just 8 months.

That's it, all done and dusted. If we want to go for citizenship we need to live here for 5 years before applying. We think it would be neat to have two passports as we can go for dual nationality and keep our British passports!
