John Key gives away Visas

An agreement which fast-tracks the visa processing time for high-value Chinese coming to New Zealand has been a major a success so far, says the head of Immigration New Zealand.
The agreement, which came into effect in November last year, makes it easier for China Southern Airlines' gold and silver frequent flyer card holders to enter the country.
Those travelers do not have to produce evidence of sufficient funds to support themselves as long as they can show flight records for the previous two years.
Nigel Bickle today re-signed the agreement with China Southern at the airline's hub city of Guangzhou, in southern China.
He said increasing the number of visitors and migrants from new markets like China was a key priority to the economy.
