Entrepreneur Assessment Form

This category is only for the owners of existing NZ businesses that have been operating successfully in NZ for at least 2 years.

To proceed with a request for a formal, personalised assessment, please complete the this form. Our assessment will be based on the latest information available from our authorities and will identify whether or not you qualify for residence in New Zealand.

The information requested in this questionnaire is necessary for us to evaluate your eligibility under the Entrepreneur category. Please answer all the questions fully. It may take you some time to obtain the information and complete the questionnaire and you may prefer to printout or save a copy of this file and work off-line. If you already have all the required information in a different format, you may prefer to attach that document instead of completing this form. When completed please forward to us by email, fax or mail.

There is no charge for our assessment of this information.
