    Smile Planning to migrate. Where and How to Start.

    Currently here in Singapore and currently working as Software Engineer/ Computer Programmer. I am planning to migrate to New Zealand and bring my family along with me. Can anyone help me how to start the process? I don't have much extra to get an assistance from an agency so I am planning to do this on my own with the help of reading and asking friends and forums. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    First understand as much as you can of the relevant section of the INZ website. http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...ant/default.ht When it comes to trying to work out how things apply to YOU, this http://www.immigration.govt.nz/opsmanual/6954.htm is very helpful. SM6 has a chart of all the points available, and the other sections explain the exact requirements.

    If you need to ask questions along the way, it is helpful if you give a link to what you have been looking at, so anyone trying to help can see the exact context.

    No, there is no set time. Just put in your EOI when you have it ready.
