I've said it many times before - don't apply for NZ thinking of it as 'second best' - it is different.

And to put it bluntly most NZ citizens (me included) don't take too well to immigrants who apply because they couldn't get into Australia. NZ is a beautiful country in it's own right. I chose it over Australia and have never regretted it.

My sincere apologies if i hurt u r emotions but. I like both the countries. As NZ is some what small, SO for me finding position IT field would be some what more difficult.

SO that was the only reason. Hope you understand my point.

Hi there - sorry that I was so grumpy. I tend to get a bit protective
Not sure what the IT industry in Oz is like (although I guess it will be mainly found in the major cities, like over here). In NZ it seems pretty buoyant at the moment. At least I have never had problems with finding a job (I'm a freelance Business Analyst/Development Manager - peculiar combination I know, but for smaller companies it works quite well.)

Hmm I am java developer. Even finding job in this field in OZ is a bit difficult. But one of my friend is living in NZ. So I have that option also to consider. So that was the reason i am looking for NZ too.

Hi There,
I have a question and maybe this is not the appropriate post but this was the closest I could find.
I am awaiting my IELTS results and will fill up my EOI as soon as i get them (25th Jan)
I am planning to apply for a SS from SA and the waiting time is 3 months. I do not wish to delay the process any further and therefore
Q) Is it possible to apply for a 189 now and if I do get my SS in 3 months time apply for a 190?
Im aware all this will have to be done through the skillselect tool therefore will I have to pay the visa charges again?

Sorry my bad...
SA - South Australia
SS - State Sponsorship
189 (independent) and 190(Sponsored) are the visa types.
By the way I found the answer to my question.
The payment is not required till the time we dont get an invite from the state and post which from the skill select.
so my previous post is redundant..
