Small world hey! My sister lives in Midrand and I will have to go visit soon! Maybe we can organize a get together then?!

We are still waiting for the unabridged birth/marriage certificates... hoping to get them soon..! (and the kids passports) Then we will send off the NZQA, I'm about to send the forms to EWRB, but was wondering how they process it, do they need to verify your qualifications? I was wondering if it would help them if I contact Olifantsfontein myself and get some sort of written confirmation from them before I send of the forms? (Apart from the actual results and certificates I've got on file). With all the changes since the good old 90's I'm worried that they might not get any assistance when trying to confirm Pieter's qualifications...?

We wanted to get there by the new school year 2008, but with Home affaris taking so long I don't know if we'll make it by then...  :( Paterwork....&^%&^*&!!!!

Good luck on your side!

Hi Naz - Jip, we've heard about the field experience. Sometimes I look at all the paperwork and wonder if it is wirth it. All I need to do is turn on the telly and watch 1 min. of any news report and I'm motivated again...!!!

We're in Midrand as well.

Wilna, as a matter of interest, what agent are you using ?

Jip, that's where his co at the time sent him. They have had a name change in the last couple of years, not suprising with 'Tswane' and all.... (If we ever come back for a visit we will not know where all out friends live anymore!)
We are using Network Migration. I've hear some good stories and bad stories about them, but I suppose it is what you make of it. I work 2 jobs full time and time is a bit of a problem, so I 'nag' them when needed and so far so good...
hink by the time we are all there who needs to come back for a vist!!! :clap: just have to convince my Mom to pack up!
