Our Unique Fusion Service

Experience an unparalleled level of support for your move with the
most powerful immigration service available in New Zealand

Why do you need a fusion service?

Whether you want to apply for the popular SMC Resident Visa or Essential Skills Work Visa, a New Zealand job offer will be the crucial requirement for your visa application.

You cannot obtain a visa unless you have a job, but on the other side you will also find it very difficult to get a job as long as you do not have your visa yet.

Online job portals will likely filter out your application without a work visa, and you will come across job listings stating "only applicants who hold a visa that allows them to work in New Zealand may apply."

Employers are not permitted to employ anybody who does not have the legal right to work in New Zealand. The prospect of offering a job to a migrant is daunting and the visa application process highly bureaucratic.

This is made more difficult because of the heavily network-based job market that exists in New Zealand, where only 1 in 4 jobs are ever advertised.

No visa without a job, and no job without a visa. You are caught in the well known Catch 22 dilemma.

How can we help?

At NZIC we look at the full picture when approaching your migration process. Based on our experience, gained from more than 25 years of working with migrants to New Zealand, we have developed our powerful Fusion Service.

Our Fusion Service is the expert alignment of our Visa and Job Search Services. While our Visa Service and our Job Search Service each provide a full range of professional expertise and support, and will each significantly improve your chances of obtaining a visa or finding a job, it is the unique fusion of both services that makes NZIC your most powerful partner for your migration to New Zealand.

Being migrants ourselves, we have experienced first hand what it takes to successfully migrate to New Zealand: There is more to it than "just applying for a visa".

How does it work?

Our Visa Assistance Service and our Job Search Service are expertly aligned with each other and our teams cooperate closely throughout your entire immigration process.  

Our Licensed Immigration Advisers will guide you through your visa application process with your job search goal in mind, and our Job Search Professionals will coordinate your job search with your visa requirements.

Together they provide an unparalleled level of immigration assistance and empower you to eventually break through the vicious Catch 22 cycle.

What our clients have said:

Our valued, highly rated feedback speaks for itself

NZIC was a great help in getting my family and I to New Zealand. Anna was worth her weight in gold, she was fantastic at helping me format my CV and search for jobs that suited my skill set. In the end, I got a great job in a great city. Carsten and his team were very thorough and helpful when it 2020 came time to apply for and get our visas. Because of that, once we submitted our paperwork immigration had everything they needed from us and did not have to come back for more information. They are now helping us with our resident visas, and I’m certain that the process will be the same. I’d recommend them highly.

“NZIC shows commitment and provide professional immigration service.
At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to 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..!”

"NZIC was the only company in New Zealand that we could find with a comprehensive Job Search service!"

"Thank you for your help on that journey! My job hunting has really been improved thanks to NZIC! Anna was always by my side, giving me advice, working on my CV and Cover Letter and even correcting my English! And then, thanks to Carsten, my application for my work visa has been accepted within only 3 days!"

"Dear Carsten, Katrina and all of our friends at NZIC- We can still hardly believe this wonderful event of our residency visas having come through! Thank you so much for all of your guidance, support and encouragement throughout the process; without you, we would have been adrift. J and I are over the moon.
We cracked open a bottle of local NZ sparkling wine last night to celebrate. Thank you for standing by us through this uncertain journey. It has made the world of difference to us having you there."
