Five Reasons to use a New Zealand Based Adviser.
- Easy access to your adviser when you need them most.
Many people may start the immigration process while in their homeland but the majority of people and the work involved in the applications happens in NZ. Approximately 80 to 85% of people who are granted residence are already in New Zealand on a temporary visa.
Your adviser being in the same time zone as the immigration office dealing with your residence application is hugely beneficial, helping you to avoid unnecessary delays and frustrations.
- Migrant protection from the Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA).
Surprisingly there is a difference in protection you receive between using a onshore or offshore adviser. Although the IAA can stripe any adviser of their license, if they are offshore they have no distinction to take
- Support for NZ employers when hiring migrants.
Employers love having us just a phone call during their work day or able to pop in to see us at our central city location. We are often called in to help employers with their required paperwork and being just down the road is often reassuring to employers.
- Good professional working relationships with Immigration New Zealand staff.
We interact with the Christchurch INZ teams on a daily basis and although we may not always agree on technical matters there is a mutual respect for our distinct roles.
- Local information and networks.
There is nothing like having local knowledge, introducing you to social and business networks to ease the settlement process.
