We got our residency application granted. But what would that mean for us.
-It means that we can stay in New Zealand, work study or whatever we would like to do.
Having the same obligations and rights as a Kiwi. We can travel to other countries and come back without having to apply for a visa. But we are not citizens, you have to stay in NZ for more than five years to become one. After two years we can apply for permanent residency.
Confusing? Yes it is!
Immigration has a good website with more information on residency etc.
