Thanks guys.

Well very happy to say that we went to immigration to check that all the docs were in order and to hand it in and we were told that the docs are perfect and if we want, we can wait for the Permits and get it today because they were not busy.  :o  :clap:

We waited less than 15 minutes and the permits were in our passports (very similar to the Work Permit sticker) we also found out that because we are married the fee is only $130 for both of us and not $130 for each of us - we were so happy - what a saving!  :heeha: 2 good things in 1 day.

So we have officially extended our Visitor's Permits until 25 May 2009 and in the process of changing our flight dates - so we have an extra 2 months - I really hope something will come through for us by then...

hey Saturn, glad it all went well...
Why'd they extend it only until 25 May? Isnt an extension valid for 6 more months?

Hi Micayla - once your initial 3 (free) months have expired you can apply for up to another 6 months and then after than a further 3 months, staying in NZ as a visitor for a total of 12 months - but like I said for UP TO 6 months, we had to show proof of finances for the time we wanted to extend and we can only afford another 2 months, which in total will be 5 months, so there would be further costs if we wanted to stay for over 6 months because then Immigration wants temporary entry X-ray certificates (even if you are just visiting) - so 2 months it is - it's all we can afford and we are going to try and make the best of it.
