I could easily live in the UK. I love the rain and cold, and I dont need a summer.

You need to decide what you want.

NZ will give better weather than the UK, as well as a good quality of life. Car, bigger house, open spaces, small population, no overcrowding.

In the UK you will earn more, be able to travel more, buy lots of gadgets cheaply with your pounds etc etc.

You decide.

Thanks for the assistance - BUT I dont know what i want - the only thing i know is that i must get out of SA......

At what stage will NZ gov say that you are not accepted - ?? I assume that if they invite you to apply then you are pretty much in and its just a matter of time, am i right??


I already wasted R20k on Australia - the agent took me for a glorius ride - and i dont think i could handle being rejected by NZ!!  :'(

I'm thinking that a country with a negative immigration rate like NZ and only 80k people unemployed would not be very selective in who they allow to immigrate as long as you have skills.

I reckon they don't want to be another province of China in 10 years time so they will be selective.

You know that your situation is totally helpless if you have to pin your hopes on a man who holds hands with Robbie...
