This quote really explains it best: 

"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, property websites will let you look for accommodation and 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 5 different people to get all of the above done."



Free Professional Assessment

Success orientated Visa Assistance

We have two fully licensed Immigration Advisers in our team: Dr. Carsten Hallwass, specialising in Business and Investor migration, and Julia Cooke who has many years of experience in Skilled and Family migration.

New Zealand has developed comprehensive immigration policies to support the country’s wellbeing and economic growth and there is a broad range of visa options available for people wanting to come and live in New Zealand. 

The visa application process is complex. Choosing the right visa type, submitting a perfect visa application and liaising with Immigration New Zealand directly can be daunting tasks.

Professional registration is compulsory for Immigration Advisers, whether they are working in New Zealand or anywhere else in the world.

The New Zealand Immigration Authority, Immigration New Zealand does not accept visa applications from advisers who are not licensed by the Immigration Advisers Authority, IAA.

Both advisers are fully licensed and provide individual guidance and support from start to finish, taking away any uncertainty you might have about your process and the potential risk of being rejected by Immigration New Zealand and failing with your migration to New Zealand. 

Many of our clients have confirmed that they would have found it difficult to navigate this process without expert assistance. 

Our Licensed Immigration Advisers will lodge your visa applications in the best possible manner and liaise with Immigration New Zealand on your behalf to ensure a successful outcome for our pre-approved clients.

Our Job Search Team will work with you on becoming the best candidate you can possibly be on the New Zealand job market.

We will develop your professional profile to a high standard, guide and support you throughout the entire job search process and liaise with New Zealand employers and recruiters for you. 

We will not only provide you with some general advice or a template for your CV and cover letter, but actively build your profile to represent your professional skills in the best light possible. 

Additionally, Katrin, the Employment Adviser,  will liaise with our Licensed Immigration Advisers throughout your process, to ensure that your job search is aligned with your visa application.

Now, to provide an even higher level of support we have just added a new member to our Job Search Team: Jacqui is an experienced Recruitment Specialist, will go the extra mile for you by coaching you during your entire job search journey and evaluating employer and recruiter feedback, to optimise the active phase of your job hunt in New Zealand, until you have secured a job offer.
