"We are now living the dream!"

"NZIC shows commitment and provides a professional immigration service.
At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to the New Zealand job market by their Job Search team, and getting assistance until I got a job in the country. The Visa team would also follow me up on my pending documents, so I never felt left out.
Truly recommended for those seeking out an option to live in New Zealand. Big thanks from me and my whole family for things NZIC did for us...!" Angelo F. - March 2020

"Maj, Anna, Dr Carsten and the rest of the contributing team at NZIC expertly navigated me through the very thorough and time-consuming application processes to enter New Zealand.

Providing counsel throughout the full experience, I was on a plane bound for New Zealand, work visa in hand, before I knew it.

Highly recommend the service and proven guidance from the folks at NZIC!! Thank you to the whole team for helping to bring my dream to fruition!" Ben H. - March 2020


"Thanks Carsten! That’s truly fantastic news. It’s so frustrating how hard they make it for skilled and very needed migrant employees. The hospitality sector is so hard to employ in at the moment we need amazing people like M. Thanks for all your hard work on her behalf." J. February 2020


"Hi Jannie. You did a terrific job! The CV looks great, thank you." E.B. January 2020

"Hi, I hope you are doing well.
I wanted to send my thanks to you, Carsten and the Team for all your assistance and work with me through this journey of securing a job and then applying for a Work Visa for NZ. 
My family and I are now settled in Auckland and we are looking forward to the Christmas season in our new home.
I wish you all a lovely Christmas and a very good new Year 2020. Thank you, T." December 2019

"Hello Judi. It was a great pleasure talking to you, and I am deeply grateful to the insights you have given me with respect to job search. The elaborated detailing and strategic approach received from your end boosted my confidence and enhanced my spirit to regain the momentum. SJ" December 2019


"We'd like to thank you all for assisting us during our journey to realise our dream and move to New Zealand. Each of you in your own role.

We really feel supported. And what a great outcome we have achieved! 

After this, our cooperation will continue. Anna, G will be back in touch with you beginning of 2020. And after we are settled, we would like to proceed with the steps towards residency. We will be arriving 28 December. Lots of things to do after arrival. Find a place to live, school for L, etc, etc.

Anyway, we can’t thank you enough. We wish you merry Christmas, enjoy the holidays! Warm regards, G, A and L." December 2019

"Hi M, thank you for your kind words. I have enjoyed working with you because you are so good at following up on advice. I sincerely wish you and your wife and daughter a good transition to the NZ lifestyle. Wellington will be very different from HK but hopefully in a good way. Do keep in touch once you start your new job as I would love to know how you all are. Jannie" November 2019

"Recomendo a todas as pessoas interessadas em imigrar para a Nova Zelândia, contactar a NZIC.
A NZIC tem um equipa excepcionalmente competente e eficiente. Senti-me apoiado desde o início do serviço e devo realçar que em apenas alguns meses obtive o meu visto de trabalho e um emprego, neste momento resido em Wellington e estou extremamente satisfeito. Tudo isto graças à NZIC.
Muito obrigado!  LM, February 2019


"Carsten und sein Team des NZIC sind sehr professionell und freundlich und wir bedanken uns für die kompetente Hilfe. Sie führten uns Schritt für Schritt durch den Dschungel der behördlichen Auflagen. So war der ganze Prozess stressfreier und wir fühlten uns in guten Händen. 
Wir können NZIC nur weiterempfehlen! BH, January 2019

Ours is great thanks to your email!
SH, December 2018

"Hi Maj, We are so excited. We are on the final leg of the application process and I cannot wait to arrive in NZ in January. I spoke to L this morning and she informed me that she feels so much more relaxed now that she knows an expert team will be handling their affairs. 

It is a nightmare to try and figure everything out on your own.

Keep well, NP. November 2018


"Well for once this word nerd of an Irishwoman has no words ..except Thank you.

You guys in NZIC are amazing. We are grateful that we are in such good hands."

Have a lovely day, Kind regards, CR, September 2018


"Hi Anna, Good news! I got the job!

I received a verbal offer and am expecting the written offer tomorrow. I am so excited and hope that everything can be speedily done and I can get the work visa.

Thanks. RC, July 2018


"....But firstly & most important...Thank you. I know you get loads of than you's from happy clients and rightly so because we could not have done this without you. We had this sense of wonderful support that comes from New Zealand Immigration Concepts. I hope you do not get tired of hearing "Thank You" from your clients... it is deserved. 

Hoping you and all the staff at NZIC are keeping well. 

MR, June 2018


"Let us express our sincere gratitude to you and the entire NZIC team. Indeed the whole process was a stressful one, but your advice and to-the-point documentation not only shows your knowledge and confidence but also raised our confidence that we gonna make it. 

Your counselling before starting the process, during the work visa application, EOI and finally the Residence visa application was exceptionally professional and has exceeded our expectations. I, along with my family, am really grateful for your service and have no hesitation to recommend NZIC to our family and friends.

Best wishes to you and entire NZIC family.

Regan Timalsina & Family (Nepal)

I would love to post above message on your website and have attached a picture of my family as well.

"Thank you very much for the update. Anna has emailed me a tailored CV as well as a cover letter, along with links to a few job advertisements. She also provided me some very valuable tips with regards to tailoring my cover letters. I received a telephone call for S from K recruitment! 

I really appreciate your continued support failing which I would have lost hope.

Kind regards, PK, May 2018


"Thank you for all your great work! I admire your innovative and professional approach to the whole migration process and really value the positive feedback you have given me. Your support was helpful and energising!."

"You're and Angel who brought all the best news we could eve have! A big thank you, you have been a great team. See you in Nelson!.

Kind regards L&S S, March 2018


" I approached NZIC in September 2015, thinking that my case is not very optimistic, but I was assured that actually it is quite the opposite. NZIC guided me though all steps I had to take, waited for me patiently when I decided to travel a few months in Asia before I arrived in NZ, and made the whole process very smooth. And finally, in March, I was granted residency. 

I really appreciate their support and honesty, but most of it professionalism. I would definitely recommend the whole NZIC team to every person thinking about NZ residency. 

Have a fabulous weekend, kind regards, KF, March 2018


"That is absolutely great news! Thank you so much for all your guy's assistance with this process and helping to make the stress less:)

Kindest regards, LS, November 2017


"Let the games begin! Thank you for all your help! It is such a small word and we will properly thank all of you at Immigration Concepts once we are over the lovely shock and get our heads around all that has to be done. No doubt we will be in touch again and once we are settled will most likely pop up to Nelson.

So much to do... Onwards & Upwards. Best wishes, MR, October 2017



"Wwwwwwwwoooohooooo! You are incredible! We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and support throughout this process. 

Thanks, you have no idea what kind of relief this is. 

Yyyyyyayyyy best day ever!

Have a great weekend. CS, July 2017

JK, December 2016



"My family met the team at NZIC, when were renewing our visa this year. My husband, Vincent, had some trouble with his current position at his workplace, thus putting a strain in our application. His employer, had contacted NZIC to help with our application.Without your help, our work visa would have been declined. Because of your good service, we reached out to you for help and advise upon applying for our residency.

Your patience, optimism, resourcefulness and kind approach through the difficulties we faced during our application, has really made our experience well worth it. Your efforts and help of the NZIC team has made our dreams come into reality. We are very grateful for their service."

"Dear Team from New Zealand Immigration Concepts, I am very happy to write a little testimonial. When I first came to your office, not knowing if I have a chance to find a new home country in New Zealand, I felt that I was in the right hands straight away!

You encouraged me, looked after me and even money wise I felt it was a good value!

Your kindness was often even making me to prefer to drive to Nelson rather than to send forms with the mail. It is a pleasure to visit you in your office.

I recommend your address already a few times. All fingers are crossed now, yours and mine!

Warm regards, JB, September 2012
