On 18 May 2006 with trembling fingers I hit the send button and our Expression of Interest (EOI) is whisked off into cyberspace on it’s way to NZIS….
Two days later we get an email saying that our EOI has been selected.
This is definately a bit of a reality check for both of us as we suddenly realized that this is not just talk or dreams anymore, we are in the queue for real this time. From here on we start making concrete plans for our immigration.
NZIS had changed their point system again in Dec and didn’t accept EOI’s in January so we were of the first to be assessed under this system. Up until this point folks have been waiting 3 to 4 weeks before receiving their ‘Decision Successful’ or ‘Decision Unsuccessful’ assesments from NZIS. We decided that we will wait for this before going for our passports, birth certificates, etc.
It is going to be a looong month…
