Key benefits for applicants

What are the Key Benefits for applicants under the Entrepreneur Policies?

There are a number of advantages for applicants who choose to apply for an Entrepreneur Work Visa in comparison to other visa types:

• Low minimum investment of NZ $ 100,000 required (which can be waived in certain constellations)
• Your business can be located anywhere in New Zealand
• You can chose a business that matches your entrepreneurial background
• You can either buy an existing business or set one up from scratch
• Your partner will obtain an open Work Visa that entitles him/her to work for any business in New Zealand
• Your partner can also be self employed
• Primary and secondary school children will be classified as domestic students, so that high international student fees can be avoided.
