Senior Licensed Immigration Adviser

Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd.
Hello Readers,

Welcome to another edition of our fortnightly Newsletter.

Although it has been just about 15 days since our last Newsletter, we already have plenty of education and immigration news to give you.

While the Government is under pressure to reassess its residency requirements by the migrant communities, there's no end in sight to border closure in the immediate future.  

Meanwhile, the news from Beehive is that to support migrants, manage the border, and help industries facing labour shortages, Government will extend temporary COVID-19 immigration powers till May 2023.

The partners of New Zealand citizen/residents continue to travel to New Zealand if they hold a critical purpose visitor visa or relationship-based visa. You are welcome to get a free assessment done from us.

This Newsletter will also provide you with information that clearly talks about the skill shortage in both Engineering and Nursing sector and the increase in demand for Nurses and Engineers.

Immigration has finally come out with an Onshore Student Visa checklist, which will benefit the stakeholders immensely.

And lastly, some interesting reports in our General updates section. 

Enjoy reading and provide your feedback by writing to us at [email protected]

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and here's team Immigration Advisers NZ Ltd wishing all our reader's a Happy Easter!
