Just heard back. The miracle of text.


He got in because his lass is a Kiwi (doh - forgot about that).


He reckons arb is still on the skills shortage list, however, and and may be worth contacting his company, Asplundh, direct and seeing if they can sort something.


He says to mention his name, Luke Chandler, as he will then get a referral fee if you end up working for them, which means he will buy you a beer.


He's good like that.


You have an impressive skills set mate.


To be denied by a number would be a tragedy.

Hey Mark

Thats pretty random as i emailed them today, i will drop them a phone call and do a bit of name dropping as there's no better beer than a free one.


And thanks for the big up regarding my qualifications as i only listed about a third of what i have which makes me feel trippley better.


Im just hoping that there is somebody over there that will see me in the same light.


If you find a kiwi brides website let me know ha it could make things easier for me.


Thanks for getting in touch with your mate its much appreciated.

Treemenders; just sent you a PM but I've just been reading Mark's reply re Asplundh which is also something I suggested. I did forget something that may also work. Not sure if you are just after a holiday or something more permanent. If it is the latter you could look into the work to residency catagory. This is purposely for those who do not meet the normal residency conditions because of something like skills, college ed or age. This is how I got my residency. It takes a couple of years but is a quick way to get through all the immigration BS. You just need to get the job offer and get moving. I'm not sure of your quals or skills but, reading Mark's post, they sound like they are pretty good so the work to residency might be the way to go. Just depends if it is actually just a holiday you are after. Believe me, once you're here you might not want to go home.

If you're looking at staying then I'd definately look into that work to residency unless you meet all the other criteria. And if it makes you feel any better; we just got my old man residency. He has type 2 diabetes, smokes like a chimney and is 68 years old. Still reckon you haven't got a chance?

Thank Lordy for that!


I'd feel a right prick now if you said you were only going for a fortnight!


When did you emigrate Ian?
