How to begin a New Zealand Work Visa Application

Your first contact with our New Zealand immigration adviser will set the tone for all future immigration services and advice that can we render. By providing us the right information at first contact, we can ensure that the New Zealand visa services we provide are as efficient and targeted as possible.

Any potential applicants approaching an adviser for assistance with a New Zealand Skilled Migrant Category visa or an Essential Skills visa should provide:

  1. Scans of the passports

Your passport is of utmost importance for any immigration adviser, and it is virtually impossible to begin evaluating an application with the passport. By providing your passport with your first inquiry you allow us to begin working on your case straight away.

We do not need to see each page of the passport, and a scan of the bio page will be adequate, along with a scan of any New Zealand visas or entry stamps already held.

  1. Immigration Plans

Understanding your New Zealand immigration intentions and providing you with an immigration plan is the most important role of a licensed immigration adviser. By describing your plans for travel, intended employment, and length of stay, you give us the opportunity to consider which visas best suit your requirements, and which visas you are most likely to be granted.

  1. Resume

When an evaluating a potential migrant for eligibility for any work visas, it is important to have a full understanding of their work history and qualifications. Providing a resume with your first inquiry will allow us to instantly provide feedback on your eligibility for “points” under the Skilled Migrant Category and to ascertain whether you meet the qualification and experience requirements under the Essential Skills Category.

Next Steps

Now that you know what information we need to properly evaluate your application, we encourage you to contact our immigration advisers today or come to our Wellington immigration office to begin your new visa application.


None of the above is intended or offered as personalized immigration advice.

If you require any immigration advice or consultation, please contact our Wellington immigration adviser as soon as possible.
