Not enough pages left in my passport
I am waiting for immigration NZ to issue me with a 3 year work permit but apparently they can't do that because I don't have enough empty pages to print the visa in. can I get an extension of pages in my passport from Wellington or a replacement passport there or do I have to send it back to the UK? My sister is very ill in England and I don't want to be without my passport for long as I may need to travel to the UK.

9 month visitor visa
I hold a British passport ,my husband a Australian passport,
and my 2 children have New Zealand passports.
We want to visit the UK for 9 months next year.
We have accomodation and enough money to support our selves.
My parents are getting older and my father has only been given a short time to live .
How do we go about getting a extension on a 6 month visa ?
Can not find any help on web site .
We may go over to Europe so will they issue us another one when we come back ?
Kind regards

Re entry to England after 6 month visa up
I am currently visiting England on a 6 month visitor pass (visa-waiver granted to NZers). At the end of the 6 months visit here I plan to go to Norway for 3 months. My question is, how long until I am allowed back in England again, say on another 6 month visitor pass (I understand that the visitor pass is not a visa and is granted at the time and subject to border control approval).

I can't find any information anywhere on this and contacted the NZ embassy in London who sent me a useless form directing me to border control rules online, but with no real answer.

I have been asked by an associate to be a counter signatory.He is in the process of applying for a British passport. I hold a British and New zealand passport but both are expired. Is this going to stop me from being a counter signatory for my associate ?

confirmation on 'uncancelled non-British passwords relating to you.'
I'm renewing my British passport.

I'm seeking confirmation as to whether I'm obliged to send in my expired NZ passport with my application as per the wording in my subject header?

I'd really appreciate some advice.
