Common Immigration Questions
How long does the migration process take?
It can take anywhere from 4 months with the skilled migrant category to 2.5 years using the work-residence talent visa. Normally applicants first need temporary visas such as work visas to stay in New Zealand and work or be with their family. Being organised with documentation is essential otherwise we can guide you. The process can be complex at times, so if unsure contact us for more information.
What the best way to find a job?
This is a common question for applicants who want to apply for a work visa. From our experience you need to have a good NZ style CV or resume and cover letter. After that, you need to have complimentary skills, experience or qualifications tied in with the potential employment opportunity. With employers, we tend to find smaller business are more likely to hire than larger ones. However this depends on what type of role is & where it is. If applying from overseas, it may not be as easy as you think therefore persistence and lots of effort are required – Good luck!
What happens if my visa is due to expire?
Sometimes your visa is due to expire and your application is still with Immigration. Many are rightly anxious about this situation however there’s a pathway provided call the interim visa. These become active on the day your previous visa expired and allow applicants to remain in NZ until a decision on your visa has been made. They can last up to 6 months are issued electronically by email. The conditions on what you can do while on this visa vary ie. Visitors can’t work when applying for a work visa however someone on a work visa renewing their visa with the same employer is allowed to continue to work.
How can you assist me?
First we listen to your questions, any potential issues and then give you the correct advice. Its difficult & overwhelming when you start something like migration. We assist applicants who want to move to New Zealand every week with work, visitor, student and resident visa enquiries and their applications so it makes sense to utilise our experience. Once a consultation (usually online but can be face-face, whats-app etc) then being informed you can make the decision if you wish to do the application yourself or have our assistance and a quote is provided.
