Introduction

New Zealand investment immigrants are divided into two types: ordinary and high-value investments. They are suitable for large-scale national plots. They have requirements for welfare, children’s education, living environment, and old-age care. However, they are older, have a good English foundation, and cannot meet the requirements of immigration supervision for a long time. Permanently returning to the first-time crowd, immigrating to New Zealand with two birds and obtaining New Zealand citizenship, that is, enjoying permanent residency in Australia.

For the investment immigrants to obtain the original approval, they need to apply for a special work permit in advance or need to complete the investment transfer to obtain a full home visa. Phospherus provides follow-up services such as investment work permit, investment residence permit and investment residence renewal.

At present, there is no quota for high-value investment immigrants in New Zealand. Investing 10 million New Zealand dollars and explaining its legal source. After the immigration is approved, the money needs to be wired to New Zealand. There is no English or experience requirements for the applicant, simple operation, the official review time of the Immigration Bureau 3-6 months, is a short and easy way to immigrate to New Zealand.
