Residence in NZ

For many migrants, the ultimate goal is obtaining residence, as it provides the security to establish some permanency in New Zealand. For this reason, we encourage our clients to pursue residence as soon as they are eligible to do so, and we will work with them towards this goal from the outset of their migration journey.

There are a number of avenues for obtaining residence in New Zealand, generally through skills, investment or family connections.

We can assess you and your family’s circumstances to determine your eligibility under each category and we will advise on the relevant complexities that may need to be addressed. From there we can represent you through the often lengthy application process from start to finish.
