Immigration 
Services

At IMMagine we prepare and process a full range of visa applications, both temporary and permanent visas along with third party applications such as international qualifications assessments and industry registration.

We apply a rigorous assessment process of ensuring that our clients are eligible for the visas that we apply for by inviting people to attend online seminars, completing free preliminary evaluations and then conducting detailed private consultations where we explain the most appropriate visa options, provide a strategy to achieve the client’s goal, timelines and costs.  

Once you become a client of ours, we apply stringent quality control measures to ensure the highest standards before submitting any visa or third party application. Each application is checked twice by two experienced licensed Advisers before submitting thereby ensuring our success rate of 99.9% over the past three decades.

Accredited Employer Work Visas

Working holiday or work and holiday visas for those citizens of certain countries intending to holiday and work in New Zealand for between 12 and 24 months.

Three levels of investment (over 3 + years) are on offer to secure residence through this pathway.

  • NZ$5m in an actual trading business; or

  • NZ$7.5m in venture capital or private equity; or

  • NZ$15m in a mix of VC, PE and other approved investment vehicles

English language criteria apply.

Parent Visas

There are two sub categories for parents:

Those with at least one adult child living in New Zealand earning certain minimum annual salary, the government has set aside 1000 per annum to allow parents to join that child. This category is temporarily closed.

For those with at least one child living in New Zealand who have met assets of NZ$1.5m, are willing to invest $1.5 million for a period of four years and you have an annual income of $60,000 in the 12 months before filing their residence.

Partner / Spouse Visas

A work and/or resident and/or permanent resident visa may be granted to the spouse, de-facto partner, or fiancé of an New Zealand citizen or Resident, based on the couple being in a genuine and stable relationship that ‘is likely to endure’.

Entrepreneur Work and Resident

For those proposing buy, buy in or establish a business that is in effect unique (NZ doesn’t have such services or products).

There is a minimum of $100,000 investment but with a 90% decline rate once these visas are filed it is to be avoided at all costs.

Skilled Migrant Resident Visas

There are four pathways within this group:

‘Points’ tested visas

that require offers of employment. All require an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand paying at least the medium annual salary.

This pathway is under review and Government is not at this time inviting ‘points’ based applicants to apply for residence.

Green List Resident Visas

is a non-points tested pathway to residence for those in a relatively small number of occupations that NZ has a historical difficulty in filling.

Work To Residence – ‘occupation list’

this pathway exists for around 28 occupations deemed to be in real demanded New Zealand. Migrants are expected to work for two years in the occupation before thing able to apply for a non points tested residence visa.

Work to Residence
