arrowWithdrawing Kiwisaver balance

So before I moved here from New Zealand, I had an account with Kiwisaver and was making contributions.


The website states that after you have been living outside of New Zealand for 1 year, you are eligible to withdraw your balance. Which I

am trying to do. But I'm not really sure how.


I tried looking on the website, but it just says what documents you need to show you've left the country and resided at an

international address at some point, and to contact your provider.


Does anyone on here have any experience with this?

Hi guys,


I have been on google trying to find the answer, and I can't find any relevant information. Does anyone have any experience with this? My cat just past away back home (NZ) and I am going to visit in March (I'm a permanent resident of the US) and get my girls remains and I'm hoping to bring them back to the US with me. Is this possible? She's been cremated and will be in a box. I just really want to know if I can have her come back home with me. Please help!

Hi all, 

Just a few queries..

I saw the K1 visa timeline on the approximate time it takes for the process to get approved from start to finish. Having said this, I want to know when you are invited by the consulate to have the interview at your home country and they provide the date of the interview

- how much notice is this? Do they give you a months notice or so?

- Also do you have the option to change the date if it doesn't suit you? 


Also, I am a New Zealander living permanently in Australia. When you are a New Zealand citizen, you are able to live and work in Australia without a visa and have permanent residency. Would I need to return back to NZ for my consulate interview or would they invite me to the Sydney Consul? 
I think my interview would be in Sydney since i live in Australia now but I just want to make sure I have my facts right.

So I am working on the cover letter for the petition and I was wondering if I needed to put the E-notification as a part of the list of what is included? And do I need to wright that the cover letter is a part of it as well? 


For example, would I have it like this?


  • Payment in the amount of $340
  • E-notification
  • Cover Letter
  • I-129F
  • I-129F Supplement: Part 2, Question 34.a, explanation of meeting in person
  • Letter certifying intent to marry (Petitioner and Beneficiary) 
  • Proof of having met in person in the past two years
  • G-325A (Petitioner)
  • G-325A Supplement: applicant's residence and employment last five years
  • Passport style photo (Petitioner) 
  • G-325A (Beneficiary) 
  • G-325A Supplement: applicant's residence and employment last five years
  • Passport style photo (Beneficiary) 
  • Birth certificate (Petitioner)
  • Proof of ongoing relationship


Or should I not have the e-notification and cover letter not listed?


Please let me know if this is right or wrong and thank you for helping!! :)

For his tax transcripts this has been filled jointly, I see it asks for individual would we put the full amount? otherwise do we need to have his spouse fill out the i864A????


Can some please help & advise what is speciallfy required or if there are any alternative options, sometimes it's difficult getting this info from across the world FYI we have his signatures on the documents because my wife went over there to visit during the holidays, so now we just need the correct info to put in.


Their joint income is about $141,000.
