Our Company

New Zealand Immigration Concepts Ltd was founded in 1994 in Nelson, on the South Island of New Zealand, operating from a sleepout in our backyard and helping other migrants via overseas faxes at $3 a minute.

We have since moved into a proper office and over the years, with the help of our growing team, we have 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 range of services at New Zealand Immigration Concepts.

We have grown to become market leaders for immigration to New Zealand.

“In contrast to another Immigration consultancy that we contacted, your company offered a free webinar and an assessment, warm, approachable staff that communicates openly with potential customers. I found your website and it was very detailed and informative. I understand that your company is a fee for services provider, but that has not been conveyed as a prerequisite during the decision making process.”

Full range of Immigration Support

We provide a full range of immigration support services, unparalleled in New Zealand.  

"During my research into the whole immigration project, I've found a lot of companies/individuals who render certain services. Immigration agents will do your paperwork. Employment agencies will help you find work. Other places will write your CV/LinkedIn profile. That's all great, but no-one seems to be offering all these services under one umbrella - you have to liaise with at least five different people to get all of the above done.
You were the only visa advice agency in New Zealand that we could find with a truly comprehensive Job Search Service."

What else sets us apart?

We have our finger on the pulse of New Zealand's immigration laws and on the New Zealand job market and our communication channels are open - connecting you with all relevant authorities and the job market in New Zealand.

Because we are migrants ourselves, we know exactly what you are going through.

Our Job Search Professionals, on the other hand, are New Zealanders, well connected within the New Zealand recruitment sector.

We are upfront and genuine, and only work with clients who we analyse as having a high chance of a successful immigration.

"We're impressed constantly, on all fronts, by your and your team's professionalism.This is one of the things I love about New Zealand Immigration Concepts: that people like yourselves have actually walked in these shoes!"

We encourage you to let us know if you find a similarly comprehensive immigration service offered to overseas migrants and job seekers!
