Feedback from our visa clients:

"Initially I tried to do it on my own, but it is too difficult to do it on your own without any help! I feel so much more relaxed now that I know an expert team will be handling my affairs. It is a nightmare to try and figure everything out on your own". T.H (South Africa)

Immigration Process Management

We will manage every step of your visa application process for you - from start to finish.

The range of support you will obtain from our team of Licensed Immigration Advisers includes but is not limited to:

Ensuring your visa eligibility in light of your personal and professional background.
Determining the right visa type based on your plans for New Zealand.
Delivering your immigration strategy to align your visa requirements with the timing for your move.
Ensuring that all visa application formalities as stipulated for your chosen visa type are met.
Liaising with your NZ employer to lower potential hesitation and help them with visa formalities.  
Submitting your visa application in a flawless and complete format.
Liaising with Immigration New Zealand and taking care of any queries they will have.
Following through to completion: The approval of your visa application.

Your Immigration Strategy

Our Licensed Immigration Advisers will determine the visa policy that meets your personal and professional background, and align it with your personal timing for your arrival in New Zealand.

If you are migrating with your partner or family the requirements for them to be included in your visa application will be covered in your immigration strategy.

Documents and Guidelines

Based on your immigration strategy your Licensed Immigration Adviser will provide you with a detailed list of documents, tailored specifically to meet the requirements of your chosen visa policy, as well as comprehensive document guidelines.

Meticulous preparation will ensure that all necessary paperwork is complete and in the required format and no valuable time is lost through avoidable queries from the authorities involved with your visa application process.

International Qualification Assessment (IQA)

If you are applying for a visa with qualification requirements, you may need to apply for an International Qualification Assessment (IQA), and send the results with your visa application. Our Immigration Adviser will give you full instructions.

The Catch 22 dilemma

At this stage of your immigration process you will most likely get caught in the Catch 22 dilemma:

You will need a job to start your visa application process, but you will find it hard to get a job as long as you do not have a work visa.  

Most immigration agencies will say: "Come back to us to start your visa application once you have a job offer in New Zealand."

Unless you succeed in obtaining a job offer, your visa application process will come to a standstill before it can even actually begin.


Work with us: Solve the Catch-22 dilemma and move your visa application to the next stage!

At NZIC your Licensed Immigration Adviser and your Job Search Professional will work closely together. You will experience the power of our unique Fusion Service.

Working with us will boost your immigration success in two distinctive ways:

You will benefit from expert job search support and advice when it comes to accessing the New Zealand job market and at the same time put your potential New Zealand employer at ease by demonstrating that your visa application process is in professional hands.

By working with us you will put your best foot forward towards overcoming the Catch-22 hurdle.

Move your immigration process to the next stage: submission and processing of your visa application.

Submission of your Visa Application

Whether you are applying for a Skilled Migrant Visa, a Business/Investor Visa or a Family/Partnership Visa, your Licensed Immigration Adviser will ensure that all eligibility requirements of your chosen visa policy are fulfilled, and your visa application is formally complete and absolutely faultless before it is lodged with Immigration New Zealand.

Processing of your Visa Application

The verification process commences once your visa application has been formally accepted by Immigration New Zealand.

If your application does not add up in any way, be it because one of the eligibility requirements has not been met, or because any of the required documents are missing or lacking the prescribed format, INZ will refer back to you for further clarification.

No matter which visa policy is right for you, our Licensed Immigration Advisers will support and guide you throughout this process.

We will liaise with Immigration New Zealand and other authorities involved with your visa process on your behalf and follow through to completion.

The outcome: Your visa for New Zealand.
