Senior Licensed Immigration Adviser
Kia Ora Readers,
Finally, there seems to be some kind of roadmap emerging from the Beehive in Wellington, New Zealand.

So, here we are, with yet another edition of the Fortnightly Newsletter, providing you with the latest news and updates from the world of Immigration and Education in these unprecedented times.

In this issue, we cover immigration updates announced yesterday i.e 12th August 2021 by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern regarding the framework for re-opening borders in early 2022. Also, there is information about the recent changes to the Essential Skills Work Visa Instructions, and ‘quarantine flights’ from New South Wales and changes to immigration instructions for Australians.
This Newsletter will also provide you with information about the collaboration between Zealand and Japanese schools to build strong cultural connections. The New Pastoral Care Code of Practice for international learners is also included in this edition.

There are also informative videos for the overseas registered nurses who are planning to come to New Zealand either alone or with their families to do the Competence Assessment Program (CAP).
We have a new section dedicated to educational institute highlights. This month we are covering Victoria University of Wellington, University of Waikato, Massey University and Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT).

General update discusses topics like applications of doctors & nurses stuck in the residence queue, skilled labour shortage – a boon or bane, wasted money could have helped progress skilled migrants in NZ and NZ residence lost due to corrupt Australian border worker.
In the end, we have included some interesting and informative case studies to allow you to gain an insight into how our team assists applicants in the visa application process to get a positive outcome on the application.
We also have testimonials from clients who tell us about their success stories of entering New Zealand in spite of the border restrictions.
