    The Alternative
    Despite all the information you need being freely available, it is very easy to get lost in the information overload world of immigration. If you’re confident about navigating the Immigration New Zealand website and you feel you understand exactly what is required then there are still a few key points worth remembering:

    Be Thorough and Be Prepared 

    • Many rejections are due to simplistic errors or omissions in the application or supporting documentation.
    • Time lost due to misunderstanding information, lack of knowledge on the ever-changing immigration policies or being ill prepared can cost you money and lead to complications.

    The New Zealand Immigration System
    To immigrate to New Zealand permanently, your application will be considered under the following categories: 

    • The Skilled Migrant Category (for skilled workers and professionals).
    • The Business Migrant (for entreprenuers and investors).
    • The Family Category (for families of New Zealand citizens or residents).

    The bulk of new migrants to Zealand fall into these categories. For younger people there is the option of “working holiday visas” depending on your country of origin and “study visas” are available to anyone wanting to study in New Zealand. 
    Before you begin the residency application process it is important to note that you need to be between the ages of 20 and 55 (unless you are a parent of a New Zealand Resident or Citizen). You will also need to meet health, character and English language requirements.
