Making it alone non return ticket

Postby cornerofsilence » Fri 23 Sep 2005 20:14

We are now permit residences and our son would like to come over to New Zealand to get a feel for the place. He is 29 years old. Firstly I would like to hear from anyone who has made the move on their own.

Also has anyone arrived in NZ with no return ticket? Is there any problem in doing this?

Any information would help please.

Hello Susan
I have a feeling that if he is just on a visitor visa he needs to have proof of a return ticket. The cost of a return isn't much more than a single and if he gets an open return and decides to stay he could always use the return segment within two years to go back to UK for a holiday?
We came out on an open ticket and visitor visa and applied for work permit once here and just didn't go back.
Think he will need to check visitor entry requirements with the travel agent or airline.

Thats marevllous news. Did he bring his son over and is he settling in well? Sometimes you just need to take the risk and make the big move - we only live once. Glad it's worked out for you all. Are you staying in Hamilton?

No he did not bring his little girl

In the end his ex-partner kept changing her mind. She said he could have her if he stayed in England then she changed her mind again.

He decided that he and his little girl could not be held to ransom like that and he took the plunge himself.

He is glad he did but he really misses his little girl but he has to expect the things he cannot change.

We are in Cambridge but intend to look around NEw Zealand a bit more before we settle.

We have a lifestyle block and it is great.

You don't need to have a return ticket if you can proof that there is sufficient cash in your bank account to pay for your return trip (I think)
(1 year working visa type thingy)
We had a Visitors Visa with the terms the holder may not study for over 3 months and may not work. Not sure whether this would work as we had the promise of residency once NZIS had checked our funds for investment when we arrived. Speak to NZIS in London they are really, really helpful.
