Corporate Visa Services

Did you know it is illegal under New Zealand Law to offer immigration advice to companies or individuals unless you are a licensed provider?

Providing immigration advice is a complex field that requires significant skill and experience in dealing with necessary legislation and operation policy manuals. In May 2009, New Zealand Immigration introduced Compulsory Immigration Adviser Licensing to protect individuals applying for a visa both within and outside New Zealand. All Advisers are now required to adhere to a strict set of guidelines regardless of where they are based.


All of New Life Global’s Immigration Advisers are fully licensed under this act and have held an exemplary record with Immigration NZ since 2004, reflected in our excellent relationships across all departments. We are also Members of the New Zealand Association of Migration and Investment. You can find our details under the Immigration Adviser register or visit our team page to see each of our individual Licensed Adviser profiles.


For New Life Global, the introduction of Compulsory Immigration Adviser Licensing was a validation of our existing business practices. We pride ourselves on being proactive to ensure we stay ahead of industry requirements, not only because it’s our business to do so, but also because the lives of our clients depend on us to do so.


As well as being Licensed Immigration Advisers, our Advisers have over 60 years experience in international recruitment with connections in over 60 countries. We are the only service of our kind in New Zealand to offer integrated candidate search, visa processing and resettlement support services in one seamless solution taking away the stress and hassle of employing overseas talent.

Employer Accreditation

Are you a New Zealand company that regularly recruits skilled workers from overseas?

If so, you could streamline the process and reduce the hassle involved in recruiting from overseas by becoming an Accredited Employer. The purpose of accreditation is to allow employers to recruit highly talented workers from overseas more easily to ensure access to the global skills their company requires. Becoming an Accredited Employer offers the freedom to employ workers from outside New Zealand without having to prove there are no suitably qualified New Zealanders applying, or readily able to be trained, to do the work.


Approval In Principle

Are you a New Zealand company that needs to hire several overseas workers in one go?

If you have a situation whereby you need to hire several overseas workers at one time and are not an Accredited Employer, you will likely have to obtain "Approval in Principle" from immigration New Zealand to recruit overseas workers. This is quite an involved process but the good news is our experienced Licensed Immigration Advisers can help you through the maze.


Are you a New Zealand company that employs several overseas workers?

With a range of different visa types available, complying with Immigration Law can be a complex process. The consequences of getting it wrong mean you risk breaching the Immigration Act, which can incur up to a $100,000 fine. In most cases, a breach of the law is unintentional - for example, if you are employing an overseas worker whose work visa is attached to their partner’s then be mindful your employee’s visa will be no longer valid if the partner decides to leave the job. See how easy it is to make mistakes unknowingly!

New Life Global can provide an Internal Audit to give you peace of mind - you will know all your overseas workers’ visas are correct. Our Licensed Immigration Advisers will work alongside your HR department to check all your employees’ visas are valid and identify any potential issues. We will then ensure all of your employees' visas are renewed before they expire, saving you from potential fines or lost productivity and disruption due to long visa processing times. We can either help you build a database and train your staff in eligibility so you are able to manage your own records in the future or we can manage the whole thing for you on a monthly basis.
