As a regular user of Sealinks car ferry to Great Barrier Island I feel I can comment on recent events affecting great barrier sailings.
The usual vessel has been taken out of service due to structual failure. Resting in service temporary from half moon bay with Waiheke car ferrys filling in.
5 cancelled sailings in a week, no apology. I have found one of the service staff and a manager Jeff from halfmoon bay temporary departure point rude and unhelpful.

I arrived 7 am thursday 21st of May…

I'm from Pakistan and willing to move to New Zealand, I want to start a new career as a truck driver, but don't have a HGV/LGV licence at the moment. I spent some time in UK and have a manual car driving licence.
I had some questions about getting a NZ truck driving licence:

Is it even possible for a Pakistani national to get a work visa for NZ?

How many months work can someone do in a 23 month working holiday visa?

Perhaps there is no limit.

I know in Australia when I went it was 6 months per employer and you could work all 12 months of the 12 month visa if you wanted.

Thanks.

Slilly

Hi fellow travelers

I have just hit 30 and planning a trip to NZ as a pre university break.
