Thanks you guys!!!! I am so excited  :heeha:

No - no job offer. My hubby does not want to go alone and look for a job (never been out of th country and scared  badly by the idea!! But we are told that once there he will find a job within 2 weeks and then start working within another 2 and then firts pay check after max 6 weeks there??? :P

I do not see any other way of doing this as we do not have money to go on holiday/ job seek and we have 3 small kids that has no where to stay while we go.............

If you guys have a chance - check out my ???? in Hozit above?

Hello,

also just wanted to ad my 2cents worth.  i've been getting into contact with nz police and their forensic services as Im in the same field here...asked what the scope for employment was that side...they said that they are currently 'full up' as they only examine a total of 50 firearms per year.  i examine that in 1 week in sa......their forensic services are also contracted out but they advised me to contact them when im there..... :)

You've got all of us here, we are all in is the same boat :-) Hey, at least its not long until we are out of the sinking boat.

Getting back to the topic, just got back from visiting friends and family up in Johannesburg. Some of them heard about us possibly going to NZ. Well here are some of the comments we received.

- NZ has its own problems too, the Maoris (funny how this one always makes a comeback)
- The weather is so bad, I could never live there. Its worse than the UK, it just rains non stop.
- In SA you cannot enjoy the outdoors because of the crime, in NZ you cannot enjoy the outdoors because of the weather.
- There is a hole in the ozone above NZ, what do you want to live there for?
- You will be back.
- you crazy, you are never going to be able to have the same lifestyle there as we have here.
- Give South Africa another 15 years and everything is going to be OK. There will be no AA in 15 years time, you will not have to worry about your childrens future.
- 2010 is coming, SA cannot go bad, you have to just believe.
- You not going to get away from all of the crime, crime is everywhere and its not something you can run away from.

those are the most pathetic reasons I have ever heard.

I can write a paragraph on each but I am getting ready to leave for work so will have to wait for later tonight (NZ time).

Heres abother stupid one I heard.

A friend has a work collegue who came back because even though they liked it in NZ they just never felt like they fitted in or felt quite at home.  Hellooooooooo I am beginning to feel like that here.    Also I suppose you have all seen the aticle on Zim on todays online news
Zimbabwean students who have their fees paid by the state could be forced into the civil service and banned from emigrating under a new government scheme.
How long before our government follows their example. :thumbdown:

Sorry Nolan I know this post is about crime in NZ.

I also have friends that have returned to SA but from AUS, they also said that they never fitted in and how they feel like a foreigner all the time. But I think reality is slowely eating away at them and one of these days they are going to swollow their pride and return.
