New Zealand Immigration Assistance

Sometimes you need to know that someone is supporting you when you need it most. The visa application and immigration process can be daunting; the volume of paperwork, the T's & C's, the deadlines and the stress, choosing the correct visa for your personal situation. Whether it is your first visa or even third visa, being issued a PPI on your submitted application or having an unlawful status. Needless to say the playing field can be tricky.

Our aim is in our name, Assistance. If we can relieve some of the stress, workload and pressure to allow you to focus on the important things in life, such as maximising time with family and friends, then we will have achieved our goal. We look forward to assisting you with your requirements to be in the beautiful New Zealand, our Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud, whether it be visiting, working, retiring or making it home.
