    First thoughts.

    Unless your 20-year-old daughter is financially dependent on you, you would not be able to include her in any application, and her partner definitely wouldn't count as part of it. He, or the two of them, will need to apply separately. If they don't have qualifications wanted by NZ, perhaps a good first step would be a Working Holiday Visa.

    You need to look at the Immigration NZ website to see the requirements. Skilled Migrant needs qualifications in one of their lists of skills that are in short supply in the country at the time you apply. Then there are the various kinds of work visas. Here is the page, with links off it, that you need to read. http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/work/

    Then, there are visas for those wanting to run their own business. You'd need to look at the Long Term Business Visa link, here. http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/invest/

    Some people are just so picky!! I can't really add any more advice than JandM has given but just wanted to say hi and welcome and I hope it all works out for you. Don't be put off, most of us really are more interested in what you have to say than in your punctuation!

    Yes of course we want to help all newbies but it makes it very difficult to read long posts that have no punctuation at all!

    i am glad to see that not every one is looking at the right spelling and the likes.
    i myself was born in poland, grew up in germany and my english was terrible 17 years ago.
    as a foreigner trying to speak and write english it can be daunting, and just cause you live in britain dont always mean you are british.
    even in germany where i went to school there was those "better"educated than others for whatever reasons life threw at you.
    will keep reading, but am not sure if i want to post again

    dave and maria, welcome to the forum, i found it full of fantastic information and good luck on your pending new zealand adventure if it comes together
