How To Move To New Zealand :

Once you have decided to move to New Zealand your first step would be to apply for a Resident Class Visa… there are 6 options :

  • Skilled Migrant; based on a points system
  • Entrepreneur; suited to those who have already set up and run a successful business in New Zealand
  • Entrepreneur Plus; for those who have already invested 0.5 million in a New Zealand business
  • Investor; willing and able to invest 1.5 million in a New Zealand company
  • Investor Plus; able to invest 10 million or more in a New Zealand company
  • Silver Fern; a limited number offered but a great option.

Choose which New Zealand residency Visa suits you the best, and then apply for it.

For basic economic reasons most people moving to New Zealand  choose to apply for the skilled migrant visa.

The skilled migrant visa is the logical choice but not always the fastest visa to be processed, the immigration department tends to under staffed and they have well defined  policies to follow in effect they don’t hurry their decision or the assessment of your suitability – so be prepared for a 12 to 24 month wait for an answer to your New Zealand PR application.

Care is needed also to ensure the forms are filled out accurately and honestly as all Permanent Resident Visa applications and New Zealand PR applicants are reviewed closely.

Expect at least one verification visit to your place of employment and  possible random spot checks or phone calls to your employer or supporters at any time.

Do not give false information hoping to boost your chances of gaining your PR.

There is  zero tolerance to false information being used in this way.

If you feel you need help with your application ask several people within your ethnic group for a qualified immigration lawyer they used them selves and are happy to recommend.

If you want apply on your own then simply… Click on the Link below to visit the official New Zealand Immigration website   NZ Immigration

On their website you can check if your current skills are in short supply.

Plus establish the number of  points you have at the moment and how points you require to qualify for New Zealand Residency.

While you are on the Immigration website  I would advise you to register  as this gives you  access to  more detailed information.

Once you are registered  and logged on you will have access to all the information required to start filling out and presenting Your New Zealand Residency application for consideration.

This Visa application is the first  step in your move to New Zealand and becoming a KIWI…
