Student Visa

New Zealand is home to some of the world's leading universities, and obtaining a degree or diploma from these institutions carries global recognition. The New Zealand government offers various types of student visas, such as Exchange Student Visa, Fee Paying Student Visa, Dependent Child Student Visa, and Foreign Government Supported Student Visa.

We shall guide you through the entire process, from selecting the right visa pathway to handling the application, accommodation arrangements, and airport logistics, providing a comprehensive and hassle-free experience.

Visitor Visa

Whether it's outdoor adventures or connecting with the welcoming locals, New Zealand offers a memorable experience for every visitor. At Visa Matters, we help tourists make the most of their stay in NZ. If you have been staying in New Zealand for over 9 months on a visitor visa NZ and want to extend your stay, you can apply for visitor visa extensions under a special category.

This special category of visitor visa can be given to business visitors, genuine tourists, partners of New Zealand citizens/residents, partners of work visa holders, guardians accompanying students, and parents/grandparents of New Zealand citizens/residents. We assist individuals in navigating the complexities of these special category visas, ensuring a longer and more fulfilling visit to this beautiful country.

Resident Visa

Want to become a resident of New Zealand? Visa Matters specialises in assisting individuals seeking residence through the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) visa pathway. Our immigration NZ advisers will guide you in preparing your EOIs to maximise your chances of success and support you throughout the SMC Resident Visa application process. With our wealth of experience as immigration advisors, we provide valuable advice on evidence and supporting documents to enhance the likelihood of a successful application.

Parent Category

If you're a resident in New Zealand with a high income, your parents may be eligible for residence under the Parent Category. This category allows parents of residents to immigrate to New Zealand if their adult child or adult children residing in New Zealand earn at least 1.5 times the median income.

What's noteworthy is that Immigration permits two adult children to use their income to co-sponsor their parents, providing more flexibility in New Zealand migration. Visa Matters can assess your parents' eligibility under this category and assist them in submitting their Expression of Interest (EOI) for a Parent Category Resident Visa.

Partnership Categories

If your partner is a New Zealand citizen/resident or holds a New Zealand Work Visa, you have the opportunity to apply for a work visa or visitor visa under partnership visa NZ categories. It's important to note that there is no obligation to be married to your partner, and there is no minimum duration of cohabitation required when seeking a work visa or visitor visa. However, if you and your New Zealand partner have been in a living relationship for 12 months or longer, you become eligible to apply for residence under the partnership category.

Are you currently under Immigration New Zealand's scrutiny for any reason? Have you faced a visa rejection or received a "PPI letter" (also known as a "letter of concern") from Immigration New Zealand? Visa Matters is here to offer guidance on the most complicated immigration matters. We can also help you with declined visa applications, issues related to unlawful stay in New Zealand, and appeals against deportation to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal. So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, don't hesitate to contact New Zealand immigration advisers, like us, for expert advice and assistance.
