    I had an amazing experience with Visa Matters, specially Ankur. He's profesional, prolite and such a helpful kind person i've met in visa industry. I would highly recommend him to anyone travelling to NZ! My work visa got approved in 15 days and family visa in 1 month. Thanks a lot Visa Matters & Ankur bhai!

    Great service. I would highly recommend this firm. I received good advice from my Lawyer. He was very helpful and had immense knowledge about the process. Usually AEWV application process takes about 7 weeks. Somehow my application got approved within 10 days. I am so happy. Thank you so much Visa Matters 😀

    Absolutely great service and guidance, my brother has very tricky case with various criminal convictions. We changed advisor and took his case to Ankur and he nailed it with his knowledge and positive attitude in very short timeframe. My brother got his residency visa approved. He left NZ with no hope but Ankur presented and handled his case effectively and we got the positive result, my brother can finally return to NZ. Also, his service is really rapid. Thank you Ankur for all your hard work and efforts. Highly recommend Visa Matters 👍🏻

It is worth every penny to choose this advisor. I finally got my Residency approved and thanks to Ankur who was fast and professional in assessing my eligibility and processing my application. So if you are looking for an immigration advisor for processing your visa application choose this.
  • Avatar Jatin Patel ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Got a partner of a New Zealander work visa today, I am so happy. Got it before the expected time and official average time of processing of visas in this category. Ankur is very professional, I really had a good experience, they made me very sure that all required documents I already gathered in order and met requirements to this specific visa so there won't be any chance of queries from immigration side. I appreciate his dedication and hard work. Thank you to Ankur and the visa matters team.
  • Avatar Monica Murton ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    My husband and I worked with Ankur to sort his permanent residency visa - we had a bit of a rush - and Ankur was amazing to work with - straight to the point - great advice - great result.
    We also worked with Ankur to help get a visa for one of our employees moving from overseas - the process was so smooth, and refined - we will always work with Ankur for any personal and business visa needs.
  • Avatar Sheba Mariam ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Mr. Ankur have guided and supported throughout the PR process of my husband. As my husband had a DUI, we were very unsure about the PR and was worried to the core. Ankur was always with positive thoughts and helped our 5years of dream come true!! We are very thankful for the team!! And I personally highly recommend Visa Matters for any kind of visa concern of yours!!
  • Avatar Dhanuja Aberathna ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I had a complex case with my wife’s visa application, and one friend referred me to Visa matters. We explained our situation to Mr. Ankur and his team, and they came forward to help with the visa application process. They were very professional and very detail oriented with their work. I got my wife’s visitor visa approval within 40 working days because of their hard work. We requested 9 months visitor visa, but she got 12 months visitor visa thanks to Mr. Ankur and his team.
    Looking forward to working with them on our future visa applications and highly recommend Visa Matters.
  • Avatar Kendyl Gibbons ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Thank you Ankur for your help with the visa. Fast and efficient throughout the whole visa process. Great communication. Easy & clear steps to help with documents. Thanks so much. I highly recommend. Our little family can finally continue to be together. Thanks again @visamatters 🙂
  • Avatar Ryan Correa ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I would like to start with saying, for any immigration matters please look no further and Visa matters is the best place.From my experience, I have dealt with Lane Neave and Fragomen which are considered big law firms but the service is dreadful. I was just a file number and had to constantly follow up as if I am the advisor and they my client. Decision to go with Ankur (Visa matters) was the best decision, although we crossed paths coincidentally through a common friend.Lane Neave dealt with my case for 1.5years and couldn’t complete my SMC application whereas, after a discussion with Ankur my SMC application was filed in 14 days. We received our residency after a lengthy process but we were at ease since Ankur kept us updated throughout the entire process.I highly recommend Visa Matters for all your immigration problems since they are are the best out there and they really care about what matters to you the most.
  • Avatar Neena Beekram ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Thank you so so much Ankur, we have finally received our residency visa, and that too without any issues. I have known you for almost 5 years now and you have always had that agile approach.Your passion and care for your clients is infectious and inspiring. You are extremely knowledgeable and supportive and I would highly recommend Ankur & Visa Matters to handle your next visa application.Thank you AnkurNeena
  • Avatar Adhishree Sawant ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I highly recommend Ankur from Visa Matters for immigration advise. My partner and I consulted Ankur for our Skilled Migrant Category followed by 2021 Resident Visa application.We are impressed with the expertise offered in our case. At the onset, Ankur clearly stated the timeline of deliverables and aligned them with prompt updates, communication, and patience with our queries leading to a positive outcome of our application. We’ve engaged with other advisors in the past and can recommend that Ankur’s and his team’s services are unparalleled.

  • Avatar Stephen Bosworth ★★★★★ a year ago
    My wife and I can’t thank Ankur and his team enough for everything they have done for us and for putting in such effort to get my residency visa over the line for New Zealand!!I had originally applied for my partnership residency visa almost 2 years ago before I found myself in a situation which meant I was no longer eligible for residency unless a character waiver was granted. This made my case quite a complex one. We applied for the character waiver under Ankur’s guidance late in 2020 and sadly it was denied early 2021.This meant that I had to leave NZ and my wife and head back to the UK while we appealed the decision of INZ. It made things a lot harder with time differences and whatnot but Ankur was always prompt with his emails and correspondence with myself and my wife who was still in NZ!Thanks to Ankur’s efforts we won our appeal and the residency application process was started again! After close to a year of back and forth with INZ providing fresh evidence and anything else they asked of us we finally received news that my residency visa had been granted last week and I now have a flight booked to get back to NZ and back to my wife and home, again, thanks you Ankur for all your efforts in making this happen and for being so patient and understanding with the hundreds of questions we have thrown at you over the last 2 years!!Steve and Kellie Bosworth

  • Avatar Arvind sindher ★★★★★ a year ago
    We are hugely grateful and thankful to Ankur and his team for helping us to get AEWV visa. Our case was not a straight forward one as we had a lot of complications, Ankur advised us that this will be a difficult case, but to remain positive. The whole process with Ankur was really smooth and thorough as he picked up even the tiniest details which had been missed in our file previously. Communication has been first class and he has always been upfront and honest. We highly recommend Visa Matters to anyone who is looking for any assistance regarding INZ.

    Been that this is the first time i had used a immigration adviser before, i must say i found Visa matters to be quite well versed and efficient in dealing with my partners visa i didn't have much trust in the process of the immigration from what I've heard of in the past so i went with Visa matters and they made it a easier process than me doing it alone, making sure i got everything right...wasn't easy, we made it in the end...Thanks again Ankur

  • Avatar anu gill ★★★★★ a year ago
    I would like to start saying if your case is complex and have no hope. Please look no further visa matters is the best place. Shout out to Ankur who remarkably helped us obtaining our Residency visa.We provided false and misleading information information in our previous partnership application which meant I was no longer eligible for residency unless character waiver is granted. I reached out to so many advisors and lawyers but no gave us any hope. Luckily I approached Ankur after checking his Google reviews. Ankur reviewed our case and highlighted the risks and guided us with every step. We made the right decision choosing Ankur to represent us in our application to INZ. His explanations and answers to queries struck our confidence on him. His professionalism is on the highest level.We experienced a hassle free and smooth sailing process. To those who are looking for an immigration advisors especially for complex cases. I strongly recommend Ankur. He is an expert of any immigration issue. May god bless you Ankur and shower you more wisdom so you may continuously serve and help migrants to make their dreams come true here in NewZealand. Thankyou 😊

    I had applied for a 3 year work visa which was at the verge of getting rejected due to my medical condition. I had lost all hope. My sister then put me in touch with Ankur at Visamatters. Everything changed for the better from that day onwards. I had been on an interim visa for the last 5 months and couldn’t work as per my interim visa conditions. As soon as I transferred my case to Ankur, my visa got approved within 7 working days after our final submission. I cannot thank Ankur and his team enough. Highly recommend Ankur at Visamatters for any immigration/visa related issues. You won’t be disappointed!

    Ankur is by far the best immigration advisor in New Zealand. His knowledge, experience and out of the box thinking is commendable. Pleased with the visa outcome we have received today. My friend had referred Ankur after reading his columns/articles in I had taken opinions from 5 immigration lawyers however, wasn’t satisfied with the advise/suggestions offered. Ankur at Visamatters not only studied the case at a short notice, prepared the response and kept us in the loop throughout. We are over the moon with the results and all thanks to Ankur and his team. If you’re going through some visa issues/complications, Ankur is the person to get in touch with.
  • Avatar lahiru pathmakumara ★★★★★ a year ago
    I highly recommend Visa Matters and Ankur for any kind of complicated immigration related issues. He is an expert immigration advisor, without any argument. I worked with few immigration firms and lawyers to sort out a complex immigration problem and no one was able to help me or even provide me a positive feedback. Luckily One of my friend introduced Ankur to me and with his assistance and expertise I was able to resolve my problem within very short time. Their service is very professional quick and highly responsive. So I highly recommend Visa Matters for everyone.

  • Avatar Gargi M ★★★★★ a year ago
    Ankur and his team works really hard at Visa Matters. I usually work till late and was only able to send files to him late night. He was patient and kind and waited after hours to complete my application. I've encountered some rude and arrogant lawyers before but Ankur is completely different. I always directly talked to him and he calls clients himself. Definitely recommend Visa Matters, they are not like your usual immigration advisors. They really care.

    Almost all reviews are written by the applicant, However we are the Company whose Employee had engaged Mr Ankur, Visa Matters for their ESWV. We can confirm that the professionalism, in depth, and attention to every little detail shown by Mr Ankur was an eye opener. We would advice anybody seeking the very best advice and attention to their all their Visa Issues to contact Visa Matters. We never met before or ever had any contact. Has a Company we do not deal with the applicants agent. But we have to give all those out their who need assistance to be guided by someone like Mr Ankur of Visa Matters, rather then be lead up the garden path and the end result is bad. Once again THANK YOU Mr Ankur and your Company

    Special thanks to Mr Ankur. He was really open and honest in his immigration advice to me right from the word go. You are a lifesaver Ankur.
    Ankur is very professional and skilled and has undoubtedly provided me with significant insights into my immigration matter. His way of working is totally different from others, no comparison at all. Ankur is the best immigration advisor in the New Zealand.
    I felt that Ankur knew so much more about the NZ immigration law than my OTHER immigration lawyer, who only got me into a mess after overcharging me. My visa was approved within two weeks. Thank you so much.

    Residency approved within seven days!I applied through Ankur (from Visa Matters). He is a very caring immigration advisor, and he deserves special thanks for this. Unlike other advisers, Ankur is always available to support you. He helped me with visas three times. Every time I applied through him, I received positive outcomes. There were never any questions or concerns raised by immigration because of Ankur's very professional, systematic advice and support. I recommend Ankur to everyone

“Simply a genius mind – My highest recommendation for Ankur!

If Ankur can handle a case as difficult as mine, he can get your visa matters sorted as well. I felt like I was nearly out of NZ and that Ankur somehow managed to pull me back in the country. It is difficult to put my emotions into words at this moment as I am overwhelmed with how carefully Ankur managed this case. I was in a very messy situation because INZ told me that I did not hold the right work visa for the past nine months and therefore, I breached my visa conditions. I then contacted Ankur at the last minute.

Right from the outset, Ankur was putting in his maximum effort and was very passionate about his client’s immigration status. I had less than 24 hours to prove to my work that I hold the right visa or I would have lost my job. Ankur was given a 12-hour deadline by me, to come up with a robust response. He worked until midnight and submitted a robust response to INZ. Within 10 hours, INZ had approved a three-year work visa for me!! Thank you, Ankur and Visa Matters.”

“Mr Ankur Sabharwal’s name was recommended to me by a good friend of mine for whom Ankur successfully navigated through multiple immigration law complexities. Ankur, your out of the box approach in managing my tricky work visa application has proven to me how competent, and adept you are. I will not hesitate to refer you to my friends and family members for any NZ immigration-related assistance, particularly with any difficult matters. Keep up the good work and many thanks again to you and your team at Visa Matters.”

​Sandra Hamler

“Ankur honestly is the best, most helpful, intelligent and skilful immigration advisor I have ever come across. He puts in a lot of thought, time, and effort into the strategy of a case. He helps a client understand the facts and risks associated with the application and how we may be able to overcome these risks. My essential skills work visa application was so complex and delicate that even one single mistake would have meant that it is the end of my NZ journey. My visa application also had a lot of issues from the start, and when, after 4-weeks of hard work, we thought that we were almost at the end of the process and were close to finalising and submitting my application, again, some significant and unexpected complications arose from my end. These complications meant that Ankur needed to start everything from scratch.

Ankur patiently and professionally performed most of the work for my application whilst he was in India, and despite the time difference and travel plans, he was always available for me. He not only advised me, but he also guided me through the process; wrote all the suggestions for my employer several times and even spoke with them upon my request. I strongly recommend Mr Ankur Sabharwal for any immigration work because, after achieving the desired results in a super hard case like mine, I believe, there is no case he couldn’t solve. I just cannot thank Ankur sufficiently and am genuinely grateful to Ankur for his help!”

​Marcos Morás

“After examining my docs, Ankur had pointed out some issues with my case. He also recommended ways to manage these issues. I took Ankur’s advice and he managed to get my Essential Skills Work Visa approved. During the visa process, I observed that I am dealing with someone very reliable and experienced – very true to what I had heard about Ankur. I am extremely happy that I sought Ankur’s help for my work visa application.”

Jatin Sharma

​“Thank you Ankur and Visa Matters for getting my residence visa approved. It took quite some time and involved a lot of questioning from INZ, but in the end, I got the desired result. Extremely satisfied!

Ankur was extremely patient and professional in all his dealings with me. His strategy was certainly flawless. Ankur meticulously prepared my application and all the supporting evidence. He reviewed my residence application to the point where he transformed it into an error-free submission and INZ had no option left in the end and therefore, they just had to approve.

Ankur answered all my queries very well. The waiting period after submitting my application to INZ was daunting but Ankur was always calm, composed and confident. I am grateful to him for treating my application with such concern, that I had only heard of and never experienced first-hand. He assisted me at each and every step of the way and was in total control of the application throughout the process.

Ankur’s services were much more affordable than most other advisers/lawyers. I must add that the service offered to me in this fee was the best and I certainly could not have asked for anyone better to handle my case. He was always available to answer any queries even afterhours. I thank you again Ankur and appreciate your assistance in fulfilling my dream of living in NZ, permanently!”

​Gurpreet Singh

“One of my family had recommended Ankur to me. When I initially discussed my case with Ankur, he told me certain facts about my application which I didn’t expect him to be aware of. He had studied my documents very carefully and shared his detailed observations with me accordingly. Some of this information was highlighted as a risk by Ankur. I was very pleasantly surprised with Ankur’s assessment and the level of detail he got into – he knew quite a lot! Ankur advised me how to handle the situation and I went ahead with his advice. Essential skills work visa approved! From my experience, I can tell you Ankur was very different in his approach compared to my previous immigration adviser. Thorough case strategy, accurate advice and solid knowledge of the immigration policies and processes. Another happy client :)”

​​Aman Singh

“Ankur helped me with my Accredited Employers Work Visa application with some pretty severe deadlines to meet because of the policy changes. Add on top the fact that I was overseas, which meant there was a timezone issue too. However, I didn’t face any problems whatsoever – whether it was Ankur’s availability to answer questions promptly or his knowledge of the immigration policy and law, or the advice he provided, everything was seamless and spot on. Work visa approved without any issues. Another glowing recommendation for you, Ankur.”

​​Ashish Arora

“Ankur takes special personal care on your visa issue. He has provided me with the best advise that no other immigration adviser or consultancy has been able to do. I had visited several other visa consultants/advisers but no one was as professional as Ankur has been. He’s the most honest & competent adviser I have come across. I highly recommend him.”

​​Vivek Thirani

“I submitted my work visa application myself. Immigration then sent a PPI letter describing their concerns about my application. One of my friend knew about this situation and she recommended that I discuss my case with Ankur and ask for him to intervene. I recollect when I rang Ankur he asked for the PPI letter to analyse it. He instantly noticed multiple problems with this letter. Ankur accepted to represent me and got my work visa approved. He also ensured that INZ assessed my position as higher-skilled. I highly advise that you approach Ankur for any immigration-related difficulties. 100% satisfied with Ankur’s efforts, knowledge and professionalism.”

Dilhani Senarathna Fonseka

“I originally submitted 3 visa applications through a different NZ licensed immigration adviser in 2018. That adviser got all of the three applications DECLINED! We then signed up with Ankur and he immediately got the previous files out from Immigration NZ. Ankur found errors in both – INZ assessment of the previous applications AND also my previous immigration advisers submissions. Ankur put in a lot of effort in the case. He resubmitted my application and coached me regarding the immigration interview – Nearly all of the questions Ankur recommended to prepare for were asked by the visa officer during a phone interview! In the very first attempt, VISA APPROVED because of the correct immigration advice given by Ankur and his exceptional strategy. I strongly endorse Ankur’s expertise and talent to you for your future visa matters. 100% satisfied :)”

​Patience A. Ojehomon Gold

“Thank you Mr Ankur for your professional advice. You really demonstrated honesty and integrity when I came to your office. You showed that it is not just about the money but sincerity that prevails in life. I wish all immigration consultants would take a leaf from you. I really appreciate your advice. Thank you once again.”

​Jade Wilkes

“Ankur went out of his way to provide an excellent service whilst he was way overseas. He provided me with advice and confidence in responding to a PPI letter. The partnership visa was approved and I could not recommend Ankur enough! 10/10 for his fast communication and knowledge.”

​Aish Gupta

“Hello to everyone, I am writing this recommendation to show my sincere gratitude towards Ankur Sabharwal in getting my work visa approved. Ankur holds the right attitude and possesses a great understanding of the NZ immigration law. I had applied for an essential skill work visa myself, and my case was one of its kind. INZ raised a few concerns, and they were not satisfied that my role is a Store Manager. INZ indicated that they would decline my application if I did not submit a satisfactory response by the close of business the next day. This is when I got devastated and approached Ankur around 7 pm.

Ankur patiently heard me out and analysed my situation and accepted my case. He immediately found some technical flaws in INZ’s arguments. Since we didn’t have much time to respond, Ankur went the extra mile and started working on my case day and night. I remember that it was 1:55 am when I received the last call for the day to explain the case tactics. Ankur kept my spirits high and always showed me the ray of hope. His positive attitude, dedication and personal touch has made us emerge as a winner. I got stoked today when I got my visa approved for 3-years! This result means that I can now also qualify for residence in NZ. According to me, Ankur is the most recommended immigration adviser in NZ – Thank you, Ankur!”

Hollie Goldsby

“Unfortunately, I recieved feedback from immigration on Thursday of last week that there were complex concerns surrounding employer, location on visa and role promotion related issues with my recent visa application. I was so worried that my third visa application for NZ may not be approved and immediately began to panic. I told my best friend Jade Wilkes and she immediately referred me to Ankur as he had recently assisted her with partner residency visa approval. I contacted Ankur early on Saturday morning (10/3) and he was more than ready to discuss my application and start working on my case immediately. I had until Thursday (15/03) to submit more evidence to support my case and Ankur worked all through the weekend to help me; there were numerous phone calls, texts, advice & support (even until nearly 11pm on Wednesday night!)

​After compiling my case, Ankur uploaded my documentation for me yesterday (15/3) at 3pm to meet with INZ deadlines, I recieved my APPROVAL for a 3 year Essential Skills Work Visa TODAY (the day after submitting) at 9:15am (16/3). The quick turn around was due to Ankur’s concise and remarkable letter in response to my assigned case officer, I couldn’t believe the quick turn around with my case. I know this wouldn’t necassarily happen for everyone but I truly believe it’s due to the way Ankur handled everything for me.

​Alongside my approval, I recieved some further good news – INZ decided to not consider the information from my current application prejudicial for future applications. I couldn’t ask for anything more! Ankur is extremely professional, easy to talk to, honest and his extensive knowledge and expertise of immigration law is incredible. The way he handled my case was second to none and was completely different to how I would have responded to INZ. I highly recommend his services to anyone who has issues with any Immigration matters, he is incredible to work with. Thanks so much, Ankur!”​

​Udara Jayasiri

“My work visa application was a perplexing one as I did NOT meet MANY immigration requirements. Many advisers would not come close to a case this challenging, but Ankur loved working on my challenging case. Ankur spent a sizable amount of time explaining the strategy and highlighting the risks to me. Ankur is very professional, and his level of detail in my case was SHARP and approach IMPECCABLE. My application was approved swiftly without any questions asked. Thank you, Ankur for all your hard work and dedication. My HIGHEST endorsement for you. Cheers….!”

​Russel Remolin

“Very professional and very responsive. I am so grateful that we used their services for my visa application on my behalf. I will definitely and highly recommend Visa Matters to anyone seeking advice on their visa application.”

​Monica Nair

“My visa issue was a complex one but the way Ankur handled it, I’m so grateful to him. Right from the start Ankur always have been upfront about things, his dedication towards the case has always been on point with his heart and soul fully into it. He’s honest, he’s trust worthy, he’s dam good with his work, a man of his words. Trust me if you have to get your Visa sorted, Ankur is the man to go to. He will pull you back from however complex your case might be and sort things with his amazing work.”

​Judy Fernando

“Thank you Ankur. I know that you have worked tirelessly on my work and resident visa application. I appreciate all your effort and the impeccable strategy you have applied which led to my visa getting approved in a short span of time. My application might not have been that straightforward, but you elegantly maneuvered through the problems and got me an approval. Highly recommended!”

Gur Virk

“I recommend Ankur as he got my 3 years work visa approved as a Retail Manager. Late last year, I had submitted a similar work visa application through a renowned immigration business, but they could only get me a one-year work visa as a Retail Supervisor. Ankur, however, prepared my case very differently, while using the same documents as my other immigration adviser. Ankur just presented the evidence much better to INZ and explained everything clearly and in detail to immigration. Very glad about the outcome as this surely takes me much closer to being approved residence in New Zealand! Thanks a lot Ankur and Visa matters Team.”

​Thilan Maduranga

“My friend Chandana referred me to Ankur for my work visa application. I had stopped working for the employer listed on my work visa. I knew this meant that I was not following my visa conditions and therefore immigration could start deportation proceedings against me. Ankur reviewed my matter and explained the risks and his plan. The way Ankur represented me with immigration, I could see he knew what he was doing. My application for a 3 year essential skills work visa was approved in just 10 days without any problems. Ankur expertise in immigration law, his attention to detail, genuine care, and professionalism my exceeded expectations. I am coming back to you with my partner’s application soon Ankur. Very pleased with Ankur’s service standards and the outcome of my work visa application.”

Sammy Naidoo (Neena Beekram)

“I have now utilised Ankur’s services for the 3rd time round, and once again he has gone above and beyond and utilised his skills and knowledge and got my Visa approved. I have never come across someone so articulate, so compassionate and knowledgeable as Ankur… he is honest and takes utmost pride in delivering a positive outcome. I know and believe that there aren’t many Immigration Advisers that pride themselves as Ankur does, he is undoubtedly the best I’ve met!

I would highly recommend Ankur and Visa Matters to perform your most complex visas, but in saying this, you must be upfront and honest with Ankur as he would give you same response! Thank you Ankur. Neena”


“Mr Ankur helped us with 2 x Section 61 requests – for my wife and our daughter, both of whom were UNLAWFULLY IN NEW ZEALAND FOR OVER 1-MONTH. We knew we needed someone sharp with a proven track record in handling these type of extremely difficult cases. Ankur heard our case patiently. He is very considerate, empathetic, upfront, professional, Friendly and knowledgeable. He did not disappoint and got a work visa approved for wife and a visitor visa for our daughter in less than 1-month. We highly recommend Ankur and Visa Matters to you for your immigration needs. Thank you, Ankur! 10/10 rating for you.”

Muthu Kumar


“I deliberated on the names of quite a lot of well-known immigration advisers & lawyers. Ankur was my best bet given the complexity of the matter and Ankur’s experience & reputation in dealing with difficult cases. Ankur not only managed to convince INZ that they had wronged me on the previous 2 occasions, he saw an opportunity to achieve an even better outcome than originally envisioned and he seized the moment. He negotiated with INZ and impressed them enough that they agreed to approve a 3-year OPEN WORK VISA (my section 61 request was only for the grant of a visitor visa). I had read the submission before lodgement and clearly, INZ was enlightened by Ankur on some major technical points of immigration law and in the end, they decided to back off. Great outcome & highly recommend Ankur for changing the course of my future in New Zealand – I am very grateful and happy!”

​Wes Shaun Mitchell

“Ankur assessed our documents and advised not to apply for another 3-months as some of our evidence was weak. We followed his advice, and in around one month of applying, partnership work visa approved. No questions asked or concerns raised by immigration. Robust application and representation from Ankur. Will use Ankur’s assistance in the residence application for sure. Very happy with the service and quick results – highly appreciate Ankur’s expert immigration advice – Thank you!”

​Harnish Patel

“My residence application was lodged through a different adviser initially, and I ended up getting a PPI letter from INZ whereby some concerns regarding my role were raised. I was not happy with my adviser, so I contacted Ankur upon a friend’s recommendation. Ankur assessed my residence matter promptly and provided a very detailed analysis of the situation and advised how I could overcome the problems raised by INZ. I was really impressed with Ankur’s knowledge and grip of the NZ immigration law. My previous advisor was not even close in terms of Ankur’s expertise level dealing with a case as complex as mine. I am pleased that I engaged Ankur for his professional services. I highly recommend Ankur especially if your case is a difficult one.”

​Jatin Singh

“My case was extremely difficult. Immigration was in no mood to approve my work visa. Ankur’s advice was spot on though. He could anticipate immigration’s next move and very cleverly tackled all concerns. My game was over for sure had it not been for Ankur. Highest recommendation for sure :)”

Samith Wickramarathna

“Ankur is a very crafty adviser with a unique combination. He consistently displays outstanding skill and expertise with a friendly & direct approach. An excellent intellect with a great eye for detail. Ankur helped me out with a pretty scary case where my future in NZ was at significant risk due to a risk of deportation. I have been in NZ for close to 10 yrs and was worried I would lose everything. Ankur made me feel a lot better while he worked – he gave me hope and confidence. He got me sorted with a 3-yr essential skills work visa. No objections or questions from immigration. Another 10/10 recommendation for you, Ankur.”

Jyoti Notani Odrani

“I have experienced the most professional and most efficient immigration services at Visa Matters, Ankur is someone who has gone way beyond his duty and thanks to him my visa was sanctioned in record time. Ankur filed an employer-assisted visa application for me and the only thing that I can say about him is that he went through the application with a fine-toothed comb. I was on a strict time frame and was quite worried about my application but Ankur made it possible. He was always available to answer my questions, provide proper direction and support. He made the entire process seamless. No question or concern of mine was left unanswered. I can only say how great the entire experience has been.

​My visa was sanctioned in 7 days and that’s quite an accomplishment. A visa application can go wrong in many ways but if there is someone like Ankur who is doing your work then you can rest assured that he will do his best to ensure a positive outcome. He made a concrete application and got the visa way ahead of time. I would recommend his services to all my friends and wish Ankur the best of luck for the future.”

​Aanchal Sharma

​“Thank you, Ankur for getting my Residence – Skilled Migrant Category application approved. I’m very impressed with your services and recommend them to everyone – Your assistance with my INZ INTERVIEW preparation was the KEY to success, I believe! People, trust me, it was a problematic application, but Ankur is a rather astute immigration adviser. He knew the type of questions INZ would ask in the interview!!! Although it was a tight interview to crack, I felt Ankur had equipped me amazingly. He invested a notable amount of time to make this happen over a 14-month long engagement with INZ. Ankur I know you’ve put in a lot of work & thought into my case which got me these outstanding results, thank you again :)”
