Hi...can i ask what is the bank statement for?? Which bank statement anyway? the one in our home country or the one we will open there?

Hui Yi said...

Siao Gang President: Oh, the bank statement is the bank statement in Malaysia. This is just to proof that you have sufficient fund (which stated in New Zealand Immigration rules)~ NZD 2250 in order to be approved. This is just for backup purpose in case when they request for proof in the custom.

I brought about NZD2250 (which is according to the requirement). :)

Siao Gang President said...

Hi Hui Yi,

I thought, its enough for you to show them that you have enough cash on urself rite?they need your bank statement as well?

Hui Yi said...

Siao Gang President: Oh, ya, enough cash is for proof, another proof for sufficient fund to buy the return ticket (because that time i just bought 1 way flight ticket).

Hi Hui Yi,

I am Cheryl. I plan to apply this visa nest year. May i know that the bank statement can be in form of Fix Deposit when i apply for the visa?

My passport will going to expired in november 2013. should i renew it b4 i apply for the visa?

I need some advise on the resume? is it a must when we apply a job there?

Thanks a lot.^^

Hui Yi said...

Hi Boon Peng, I think it'll be better as normal account bank statemnt. This is because it serves as a proof that you have enough money to survive and buy your flight ticket back if you can't survive. :P

I'll suggest you to renew ur passport 1st because if you wish to extend your working holiday and when you were over there, it's a bit troublesome to renew your passport.

Resume is not a must. It depends on what kind of job you applying. Jobs like packing fruits, work in packhouse do no need a resume. But if you wish to work in cafe, certain medicine factory, resume is needed. You can't predict what kind os job you going to do. So i'll still advice you to prepare your resume 1st...

I hope this going to help you.

Hi Hui Yi,
According to your post, do you mean 2250 NZD cash is a must to bring as the proof of fund? Can I show them the bank statement with equivalent value of 2250NZD as the proof of fund?
thanks.

Hello HuiYi,

What kind of information do you need in the resume? I don't think they need our pmr, spm certs, education history, employment history etc?

thanks ^^
