Before you apply the New Zealand Immigration few things you need to think
When you consider moving to another country, there are a few things you need to think about.
New Zealand offers a great lifestyle but you want to ensure that it is the right move for you, your partner or spouse, and your children if you have them.
Check if your skills are in demand
New Zealand’s employment market is growing steadily. There are job opportunities available across the board but some specific skills are urgently needed. If your skills are listed as in demand you may find it an easier to get a visa.
Come for a visit
It is often a good idea to come out to New Zealand for a holiday before making the move. You can use it as an opportunity to experience life here, meet potential employers and check whether New Zealand is right for you.
Get the right advice
You can submit an application for a visa yourself or if you feel a bit unsure of the process and want a bit of extra help, you can use a licensed immigration advisor. Be aware that there may be costs involved.
Check your visa options
A visa application is not cheap, and the process can take some time, so before you start to check your visa options and work out which you are eligible to apply for.
Ensure you have the right paperwork
Make sure you check the requirements of the visa category you are applying under before you send in your application. The application process will take longer if the required information is not provided.
