Hi guys! I'm really confused. Was recently granted an Open Work Visa (Family Work Instructions/Family Stream) by the NZIS, since my wife in NZ currenlty holds a Work Visa there.

I received my Open Work Visa with a letter from the NZ Immigration Officer stating that I am not required to provide an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) from the POEA because I am not employed by any New Zealand company.

My question is, do I still need to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar from POEA and/or the Guidance and Counselling Session from CFO? Or I don't have to attend anything at all? Thanks for your help in advance guys.. Smile

went to CFO but I was advised that I don't have to undergo anything from CFO neither from the POEA. at the date of my departure, at the NAIA Terminal 1 Immigration, I only presented my passport, the lady officer just asked me: "sino ang nasa new zealand?".. then I replied, "wife ko po.."

di na ko hinanapan ng iba pang documents. even the letter from my nz immigration officer, hindi na hinanap and di ko na rin napakita..
