1. Can applications for New Zealand be rejected?

Yes. The truth is that the application process is extremely strict. An application can get delayed or refused for even the smallest technicality.

2. How can I make the process of applying easier?

Although there is no set answer to this question, one of the ways that will make the process easier is to deal with a fully licensed and knowledgeable immigration agent who will be able to help you through the process.

3. Which visa option should I choose?

The visa option which is going to be best for you and your family may be entirely dependent upon your individual circumstances. One of the best ways to determine which visa option to choose is to work with a licensed immigration agency. They will be able to go through the different visa options with you and help you to determine which one will be best suited for your individual circumstances.

4. Do I have to use a New Zealand immigration advisor?

No you are under no obligation to make use of a New Zealand immigration adviser. This is a personal choice which you can make. Although dealing with an immigration adviser does involve a fee, there are many advantages to making this choice.

5. We want to move to New Zealand, where do we start?

The best way to start is with an assessment for New Zealand immigration. The initial assessment will be able to assess your eligibility. Too many people ‘jump the gun’, going ahead with their emigration without knowing if they do in fact qualify to live in New Zealand.

6. What is the best time of year to job search in New Zealand?

The best time of year to job search will depend on the particular industry. Many people find that the best time to job search is from March to October. The months between March and October do have a tendency to be ‘slow’. However once again, it depends on the individual and the specific industry.

7. Where is the best area in New Zealand to live?

The answer will be the same no matter where in the world you live – this is entirely dependent on your family’s individual preferences. The type of lifestyle which you may enjoy may be very different to that of other families.

The best way to find the perfect area for you is to learn as much as you can about each area. Find out where you will be working and plan your ideal lifestyle around the area that you will need to commute to each day.

8. Can I bring my dogs with me to New Zealand?

Yes, you will be able to take your dogs over with you, although you are going to need to follow strict rules and procedures. The good news is that with some time and patience you will be able to enjoy a happy life in New Zealand with your whole family and dogs too.

9. Is it possible to find work without visiting New Zealand?

Although it is possible to find work without visiting New Zealand, many new immigrants have not been employed while still being overseas. Although there is a shortage of skilled workers in New Zealand, the majority of employers prefer to meet face-to-face with prospective employees.

Please be aware that the reputable and professional recruitment agencies will be more likely to market your skills to prospective companies if you are willing and able to attend interviews. This does not mean that it is impossible to obtain meaningful employment, as Skype interviews are always an option.

Although the job hunting process can start in your home country, you should always be willing and able to do whatever is necessary in order to obtain a job offer. Think about it this way, would you be more willing to employ a candidate who you have met in person or one you haven’t?
