Migration Overview

Migration - Your Decision

In New Zealand you will be among people renowned for their warmth and friendliness, but also where many of the familiar ideas and expectations from your own background no longer apply. You should expect it to take some time before you fully settle into the New Zealand way of life. New Zealand is a country moulded by generations of immigrants, and our caring and experienced guiding hand at the outset can make this process seamless and worry-free.

Immigration policy changes rapidly and frequently as our Government responds to the changing needs of New Zealand. It is therefore critical that you receive current advice based on the most recent information, from within New Zealand. Access Immigration receives policy details and updates directly from the authorities as they occur and we will keep you informed about any changes that may affect your application.

As you work through the immigration process, you will find that you have many questions such as:

  • is New Zealand a democracy, how stable is the government?
  • what type of house will we be living in?
  • what are the cars like?
  • are there opportunities for travel - in and outside NZ?
  • are there restrictions on what we can take to New Zealand
  • what about transferring money?

We will cover these points, both in direct contact with you and by linking you to other relevant organisations.
