UNIFORM CIVIL PROCEDURE RULES 1999 - REG 55
(1) Despite chapter 4 , an originating process in which the
cross-vesting laws are relied on may be served outside the jurisdiction.
If a defendant served outside the jurisdiction under subrule (1) does not
file a notice of intention to defend, the plaintiff must not take a further
step in the proceeding unless the court gives leave to proceed.
(3) The court
must not give leave to proceed unless it is satisfied—
under the cross-vesting laws is being invoked; and
(b) the court is a
convenient court in which to decide the matter.
(4) An application for leave
to proceed must be made by application or it may be included in the
application for directions under rule 56 .
(5) An order giving leave to
proceed does not prevent the court from subsequently transferring the
proceeding to another court.
