Why should I use a Licensed Immigration Adviser?

A recent migrant satisfaction survey shows that four out of five migrants would recommend their Licensed Immigration Adviser to family and friends (Premium Research, 2013).

Migration Associates have just helped us achieve our dream! We are off to NZ! The application process has been quite long and in some cases quite challenging. We were guided every step of the way by the team. In the last stages Borey had to step in as it looked like the INZ were going to turn us down on a technical detail. If it was not for the knowledge and expertise that Borey had we were likely not going to succeed with our application. I am pleased to say we have just been granted a residence visa. We are just so thrilled and can now start planning our move. I would thoroughly recommend Migration Associates who definitely went the extra mile for us.

New Zealand Immigration law and Policy

NZ Immigration law and policy is complex and constantly changing and therefore it is prudent to obtain professional advice. Emigrating to New Zealand can be very stressful on any migrant and their family. New Zealand Licensed Advisers can help you take the stress out of your move by simplifying the visa application process, so you can concentrate and focus on the settlement aspect of your move to New Zealand – there is a lot to organise!

By engaging with a NZ Licensed Immigration Adviser you ensure that:

  • Your application has the best chance of success as your Licensed Immigration Adviser will liaise with your employer and Immigration New Zealand on your behalf;
  • You eliminate expensive mistakes that could result in application delay or failure – Immigration law and policy is complex; and,
  • You protect your rights as a consumer as all advisers are required by law to hold a license from the Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA) and are governed by a strict Code of Conduct.
