does it make any sense to get a visa to new zealend first ?

Hi all

Just wondering does it make any sense to get a visa for new zealend first, apply for citizenship and then go over to austrlia and get citizenship there ?

does this actually save any money or is it easier ?

It makes sense Jack if you want to immigrate to NZ.
I do not know that their system is so much easier than ours but you can have a look @ Immigration New Zealand and their system does have a register an interest and then you can be invited to apply approach.

Not sure on how long it is for citizenship there, but sure, as a Citizen and perhaps even as a NZ PR there are reciprocal residency/employment rights.

It does not give automatic Australian Citizenship [used to, but no more] and so you would still need to apply for and be granted a visa for Australia to eventually gain Citizenship here, but at least you could reside and work while it was being processed.

Time taken will depend on processing time for NZ and time for Citizeneship there and otherwise it'll be a costlier exercise.
