Kiwi here, just started my third job in Australia, have been in and out several times since, and lived in Melbourne and now Sydney. Yep, all you do is present your passport. Recruiters, HR Departments etc know that NZ citizens are legally entitled to work in Australia - even if they don't know the name of the visa, it's pretty common knowledge. At the ...

Australia has moved away from physical visa stamps. Whilst it's still possible to get a stamp for some visas there is an additional fee for doing do, and I wouldn't be surprised if even this option disappears soon. (Beyond the end of this month they will no longer stamps passports on entry/exit, even when asked!) In order to handle queries like yours, ...

I ended up calling NZTA, the person on the phone seemed to know what I needed. 10 minutes later I had an email from NZTA with a "Letter of Entitlement". I printed this and sent it off with my application. This was sufficient to get my license transferred with manual endorsements.

I did this a few weeks back, and the process was frustrating but reasonably straight forward. It just takes time. First step is to get a Certificate of Particulars from New Zealand police. This costs NZ$11 and takes a few business days, but can be done over the phone and they'll email it. It's best to do this before booking an appointment with VicRoads in ...

As we are now living in Mexico, I thought I would answer to outline what ended up happening with this. We applied for Resident Status (Visa de Residente Temporal) at the Mexican Consulate in New Zealand. When we went in for our interviews I discussed the work situation with the Mexican Consul. She made it quite clear that we did not have work permits, and ...

I sent the same question to "I Vote NZ" (The official NZ Government Elections Facebook page) on facebook a week or two ago. My question: Are we eligible to vote while living outside of NZ? If so, how do we actually vote? Their response: Yes - as long as you're NZ citizens, over 18, and have been back to NZ within the past 3 years, then you're ...

After you renew your NZ passport, you may enter NZ and live there with no further paperwork required. Based on what you've said about your age, you would be eligible for New Zealand Superannuation at age 65 (since you lived in NZ for 7 years already after age 20, and you need 10 years before age 65). That's the current rules - note that there are proposed ...

Here are some things to think about. As a minor, you're probably not going to be able to open a bank account nor sign an agreement for an apartment rental, let open start utilities for the apartment. You may also have problems getting a sim or local cell phone account. You may also have problems accessing medical care. You may want to look for "boarding ...

It would seem, that since the Immigration Act 2009, this is no longer possible without an NZ Citizen Endorsement in your other passport. Since the application may take up to 31 days, contacting the Immigration New Zealand asking how to deal with this matter under emergency circumstances such as yours is advised. If you are a New Zealand citizen but ...

There are 'expediters' in MX who can assist you with registration of the car in other US states, including providing you with a mailing address in that state with notice forwarding to your address in MX. Ask around the expat community.

De jure there are dozens of complex laws and regulations regarding remote employment, under which you may or may not need a special visa in order to work in a given country. Tax laws are an additional complication, where countries such as the UK can deem you as a tax resident for spending as little as 16 days on British soil. De facto, as long as you don't ...

I'm not really qualified to answer this since, while I am a Mexican Permanent Resident, Mexico dramatically changed its immigration system in 2012 and I was grandfathered into that status as part of the transition from the old system. I thought you should get an answer, however, since you do need to apply for visas to live in Mexico long term and you may ...
