Frequently Asked Questions about working in and moving to New Zealand
Where do I start?
No Visa without a Job, no Job without a Visa. Frustrating, isn’t it? It doesn’t have to be! A good place to start is with a Free Visa Appraisal which will tell you your chances of moving.
We break you through the red tape by pre-screening your Visa eligibility, and vouching for you when you apply for jobs. After your Job and Visa are sorted, we have a team of expert partners prepared to help you make the move.
Start the process, get a free move to NZ eligibility appraisal here.
After joining, how long will it take before I am able to move to New Zealand?
This depends on your individual circumstances but we generally say between 3 – 6 months. This includes getting your New Zealand registration, securing you a job and the visa application process. The best thing to do to speed things along is to get job ready. That means starting the application process and getting your free move to NZ eligibility appraisal completed. If you are not quite ready to make the move yet but you are interested, we can get the process underway for you without pressure or obligation to proceed until you are ready to take the next step.
