Good evening house,
I’m new here on Nairaland. A friend of mine introduced me to this forum.

I would like y’all assistance. I’m coming to NZ with Visitor's Visa and I would like to know my possibilities and chances of staying there once I come.

If I can switch my visa when I’m in NZ. what and what do I need to do because I don’t want to come back and I would want to explore the opportunity for greener pastures.

Gurus in the house should help me through. Thanks

@ Fazbuk,

To help you,what is your misision and visa status?
Where do you intend to visit or stay?
What type of challenges are you envisaging?

There aren’t any challenges so far provided you have made up your mind to pull through.

You will adapt to food and get stuffs that suit you but don’t expect swallow 100%,you will get Semolina and okro at chinese stores,palm is available in Auckland,am yet to go down there.

For accomodation,be prepared...it is very expensive but you can pair with people in a flat;avg 200-300NZD/week.

You can ask further and specific questions.


Thank for your response,
I'm for applying for my Masters degree in NZ and I was asked by the question. Canterbury. challenges someone new in the country can face

You have a skill which is needed in NZ......however I will advise you to do some google search on how to get a job as a crane driver from oversea....the resources are available online. Read and understand what u looking for and how to apply or calculate the points. come back with any questions then we might be able to help.....but advising u when u dont have any idea about what visa or process u looking at is quite tedious.
pls @ femi I will like to DM u one on one, I send u pm, there is something important want to share pls.

Hello, Mr Femi, I'll like to know if I can get a job easily in NZ once I'm in. I've read though your thread. I got my Visa already through a Sport link in Abuja and after I get into NZ, I want to know how easy it will be for me to get a job and please I want to know if there are casual jobs in NZ and how much they pay. Thank you in advance.

congrats on ur visa, yes there are casual jobs all around....availability also depends on city. But if you ain't picky, getting a job shouldn't be any difficult regardless.

Good day to you sir
Trust you are good

Please I will like to make an inquiry about nurse migrating to NZ
I came across a post on Nairaland please how visible is this?
Can my partner give it a shot ?
Thanks in anticipation I will be waiting to hear from you

1. Complete a three years Basic Midwifery study and get registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

2. Get a valid (not expired) international passport ready. This cost around 25,000 naira from any immigration office near you.

2. At this point I advise you open a dollar account in any Nigerian bank so you can easily pay for your application and registration fee to New Zealand Midwifery Council. Don't panic. Its not difficult to open. Just go to aboki buy US$10 with 3500 naira. Go with your intl passport, electricity bill, 2 passport photographs to FCMB bank and they will do it for you. When you are ready to apply to New Zealand Midwifery Council, you must buy dollar from aboki and pay into this account to cover the amount you want to pay to New Zealand Midwifery Council. You need this because you can't pay to New Zealand Midwifery Council with your naira atm card.

3. Log in to www.midwiferycouncil.health.nz/midwives/becoming-registered-practise/internationally-qualified-midwives-application-guidelines to study the guidelines.

4. With your valid valid license and intl passport ready and your dollar account funded with at least US$200, you Log in to www.midwiferycouncil.health.nz and create an account in their website. You will be given a username and password which you will need to Log in anytime. Click on 'Apply' and select 'Oversea' and fill the form.

Select 'Assessment fee'. This is because your documents will be assessed first before proper registration. Assessment fee is 250 New Zealand dollar, about 62,000 naira.

On payment option, select credit card and fill in the details on your dollar account atm card.

If they confirm your credentials to be true, they will give you decision letter to pay for your registration and license. This cost 750 New Zealand dollar, about 186,000 naira.

5. After filling the form online, you will be asked to print out two forms. You will take one to Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria to fill and send directly to New Zealand Midwifery Council.

6. You will send the following documents by post to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council,
Level 5,
22 Willeston Street,
Wellington Central,
Wellington 6011,
New Zealand.

- A photocopy of the data page of your intl passport

- Photocopy of your RM Notification of Registration

- Certificate of Good Standing. This with be sent by Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria directly to New Zealand Midwifery Council. NMCN charges around 10,000 naira for this.

7. Your CV signed and dated. It must also state names, full addresses of all health facilities/clinics/hospitals you have worked, your position, ward and explain the functions of that ward/unit.

8. Meet the Principal of your school of Midwifery and ask them to send your transcripts to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council

Tell your Principal to add that your studies were conducted and you were examined in English language. This is very important. If this is not stated, you will be required to sit and take IELTS test.

9. Get a reference letter from one of your former or current employer stating your Midwifery ability and conduct.
Another reference letter can come from a person of high standing but not related to you. You will add it in the documents you will send to New Zealand Midwifery Council.

10. Get a medical certificate of physical and mental fitness from a government hospital.

11. Fill the Self Assessment Against Competencies form. This is the second form you printed from New Zealand Midwifery Council website. You are required to have conducted at least 30 deliveries by yourself, 20 as assistants and 50 as observer. You will answer some questions on antenatal, postnatal, episiotomy, deliveries, medical surgical nursing, etc.

12. Photocopy of your WAEC/NECO. Ask your school to give you a testimonial stating your academic background and conduct. Your secondary school must state that English was the medium of study and you were examined in English language. This is the condition New Zealand Midwifery Council accepts to exempt you from taking IELTS.

12. First School Leaving Certificate.

13. Completed and printed online application form from New Zealand Midwifery Council website.

Note: all Photocopies must be notarised by a solicitor. He must print his name, Complete address, phone number, rank/designation and state 'I certify this document a true copy of their originals' on each documents. If this is not done, it will be rejected. So get a lawyer do that.

Mail all documents to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council in the address stated above.

If you have further questions on registration and licensing, pls write to New Zealand Midwifery Council via info@midwiferycouncil.health.nz

After your qualification is assessed and New Zealand Midwifery Council informs you, the next step is to look for Midwives recruitment agency in New Zealand.

They will assist you get a job while you are still in Nigeria.

They will file application for your work permit, pay your visa fee, your flight ticket, receive you on arrival in New Zealand and arrange an accommodation for you. You will sign a contract to work for them for 2 or 3 years. This does not affect your salary oo.

If you are married, they can sponsor you, your husband and one child or you and two children without your husband.
