Hi guys, welcome to the family :clap:

You can continue your application from Dubai - just let NZIS service know where to send your docs and how to contact you. They may eventually ask for police clearances from Dubai though.

Once your PR has been approved you have 12 months to land in NZ. They then stamp your visa and activate your RRV (Returning residents Visa). The initial visa is then valid for two years for you to come and go as you please. After the two years they issue you with an RRV that has no expiry date.

So yes you can take the job in Dubai, emigrate to NZ, go there on holiday to activate the Visa, return to Dubai to finish the contract no problem. What will affect you negatively though is your application for citizenship. You need to live in NZ for 5 years before you can apply for citizenship, so your citizenship clock will only start ticking once you guys have moved to NZ from Dubai.  Hope that makes sense.

:gl: and go for it, just remember to keep in contact and keep us updated with your progress O0

so if a disease is now a human rights issue, then can I then also sue you if you give me the flu?
