Our Mission

To provide the best all-round immigration support you can possibly get for your move to New Zealand. 


Our History

New Zealand Immigration Concepts Ltd was founded in 1995 in Nelson, on the South Island of New Zealand, and has since assisted thousands of migrants of many nationalities and from all over the world to successfully immigrate to New Zealand.

In 2007, acknowledging the importance of finding employment in New Zealand for both the visa application process and the settlement process, we established our Job Search Assistance service, now a key part of our service at New Zealand Immigration Concepts. 

2010 brought a further extension of the services offered: We formed the The New Zealand Immigration Concepts Network, bringing a range of professionals to the table who, over the years, have demonstrated a high level of specialist skills, complementing each other in assisting migrants with their settlement process in New Zealand.

What our clients say about our firm: 

"We would like to thank Julia and the team at New Zealand Immigration Concepts. We could not have done it without you.

Although we have not met any of you, the friendly yet professional service you have provided us with has been absolutely fantastic. You have been extremely helpful and very efficient through the process, you have all gone above and beyond.  

We never thought we could obtain residency so quickly, but thanks to all your hard work we have. You have been proactive and kept on top of our application and we will be forever thankful to New Zealand Immigration Concepts.

We are so excited to enjoy beautiful New Zealand as residents now and have our children grow up here! We would definitely recommend NZIC to anyone thinking of immigrating to New Zealand.

We are so very thankful for everything you have done for us.
Many thanks & regards"
