Start your migration to New Zealand now!

New Zealand's borders are expected to fully re-open from 30 April 2022 onwards.

Finally. After almost 20 months of living in fortress New Zealand, the Government has released a road map for reconnecting to the rest of the globe: New Zealand's borders are now starting to open!

This is the news we have all been waiting for since New Zealand closed its borders to the world in March 2020.

Get a head start for your move to New Zealand!

Our Senior Licensed Immigration Adviser Dr. Carsten Hallwass says:

"At NZIC we look forward to the re-opening of the borders, as that will allow our clients to finally turn their plans for New Zealand into reality."

"Most migrants have a time frame of 6 to 12 months for their migration to New Zealand.

While nobody can predict what exactly is going to happen over the next months, we believe that at this stage it looks unlikely that the current pandemic will negatively impact this time frame.

If you are planning to migrate to New Zealand, our advice is to take the first steps now. Now is the right time to start your Visa Application Process and your Job Hunt for New Zealand.

Starting now will put you at the front of the line when the borders finally re-open fully in April 2022!"

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 came time to apply for and get our visas. 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 guided me all the way through getting my first work visa to permanent residency. Their job seeking support was key when I first arrived in NZ, communication was always easy and clear. I'm very thankful for their help and definitely recommend their services.
