My current Open Work Visa will be expired soon and we could not back to China in a short period, so I have to apply for a Student Visa to begin my study in Master of Information Technology, then my wife and daughter could still stay here.
More than two weeks passed while we still have not got the new visas and I have to submit my daughter's application tomorrow so that she could get a interim visa and our whole family still could keep lawful status.
Sometimes I even hope the immigration officer to reject our applications so we do not have other choice than back to China directly.
Now we choose to stay here just for the only reason that we thought our daughter enjoys the life in New Zealand. Yes, the only reason.
