In January we did an article on Mario Quintela, a Portuguese citizen who saved for many years to visit his close friends in New Zealand, only to be grilled for 10 hours and sent back home by immigration officials.

Mr Quintela’s close friends, Pam Jones and Nuno Vilela have spent the past month communicating with Immigration NZ officials, who have finally issued a visa and organised a free flight for the beleaguered tourist.
Mr Quintela will arrive in just over a week.
