We are another week closer to New Zealand's borders re-opening and we are seeing gradual movement already.
Here in New Zealand we are back to normal life, the only differences are that we wear masks on public transport and we keep a record of shops and restaurants we visit, just in case we need to be contacted if there is a new Covid-19 case in the country.
There are several scenarios that will allow you into New Zealand now.
We have had a number of visa approvals recently, allowing our qualifying clients and their families to move to New Zealand over the past few months.

Preparation is key and now is the perfect time to get your immigration process underway before making the big move!
As the borders to New Zealand are now starting to carefully and gradually re-open, we are anticipating that immigration to New Zealand will realistically be possible for most migrants towards the end of 2021, or at the start of 2022.
Our assumption is supported by the knowledge that vaccination programs are now rolled out worldwide. This will without doubt lead to a high level of immunity and as a result eventually allow New Zealand to fully open its borders.
As the result of New Zealand's strong recovery from the pandemic, we have seen considerable interest in migration to New Zealand over the past year.
Working on the two most important components of your successful immigration - visa application and job hunt - now will put you at the front of the line when the borders finally re-open for everyone.
Now is the right time to start your Visa Application Process and your Job Hunt for New Zealand.

The great work done before has surely helped to achieve this quick positive result. NZIC are really professional and know what to do when to do it and how to do it. That is so convenient and efficient! I’m still working with them for the next steps and would like to thank them again for their help and support. Thank you. Kind Regards.
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.
Dear Jannie, just want to drop a note to thank for your everything. Your help is much appreciated! You are a wonderful and professional job search coach! I am so lucky to have you supporting me!
