We do not normally offer free consultations to the first-time clients because we do not like the practice of 'selling' our services. Many 'free consults' are just that - pushing a client to sign an agreement and this is definitely not our style. We respect your time and want to provide great value for the time you spend at our office.
The fee for one consultation is credited to any services that you hire us to perform within 3 months, which means that a consultation will become FREE and will be deducted from the price of your visa application.
Please note - consultation scope does not include checking application forms, cover letters and other documents for a visa application you intend to lodge.
New Zealand is a great place to visit, whether you are staying for a holiday, come to see friends or relatives, or have a business trip.
Regardless of how long you intend to stay, you must have a valid New Zealand visa. This visa is for people who are travelling:
- As a tourist
- For business visitor activities
- To see family
This option is designed for applicants who previously had a declined visa or experience a difficult situation with aggravating factors which may include but are not limited to:
- previous offences
- medical issues
There is a variety of Work visas to choose from - Essential Skills, Talent, Working Holiday and many more. We will help you and your employer to gather all necessary documents, and will explain how to prove that there are no New Zealanders available for the job (if this is the case). We always ensure that you put the best application forward.
New Zealand offers a number of partner visa options. If you want to come to New Zealand having work rights - this visa is right for you. Your partner will need to be on a valid work visa (6+ months duration), student visa (conditions apply), resident visa, or be a New Zealand citizen.
If you join your New Zealand citizen or resident partner permanently. If you’re granted a resident visa, you can live, work and study here indefinitely.
This visa fee will be discounted if we did your partnership work visa.
Student visa assistance is often offered free of charge by education providers. However, there are cases which may be too difficult to handle without professional advice. We have positive experience with visa applications which were declined multiple times or had such aggravating factors as character concerns, medical issues and overstays.
If you work for an Accredited Employer, employed in one of the occupations included in the Long Term Skills Shortage List, or have exceptional talent in Art or Sport, Work to Residence pathway is a good option.
This is the most popular visa options for those who decide to settle in New Zealand permanently. The process comprises of two stages - Expression of Interest (EOI) where you need to score 160 points or more, and Invitation to Apply (ITA) where you have to prove everything you said in the EOI with documents.
The process is quite technical and complicated which means many applicant like to use professional services of Immigration Advisers to ensure that there are no surprises along the way.
If you can contribute to New Zealand’s economy, there are special Business and Investor visas which would allow you to live in New Zealand. You consider investing in New Zealand business or government, or if you have the right business experience, buying or setting-up your own business in New Zealand. Investor visas require $3,000,000 to invest while Business visas may work with $100,000 investment.
Overstaying a visa can created a complicated dilemma for the visa holder and other people. We can evaluate how much unlawful presence you have accrued and explain any possible options for dealing with your visa overstay.
We understand that charges can have a profound impact on your life. Protecting clients against deportation and adverse immigration consequences is our top priority. Criminal charges such as drink driving offences can threaten your personal well-being, cause deportation and deny future immigration rights. Our experienced advisers provide smart, aggressive defense against deportation that carefully considers the immigration consequences.
There are different types of appeal you can lodge with the Immigration and Protection Tribunal (IPT):
- appeal if INZ declined your residence class visa application
- appeal against your liability for deportation (including humanitarian)
- refugee and protection status appeal
Appeals to the tribunal must be lodged within specific timeframes which cannot be extended, so you need to consult a specialist as soon as possible.
