New Zealand Visa Expert is a private company that provides services to people who want to immigrate to New Zealand. We are not affiliated with the New Zealand government.

However, we do work with an adviser who is registered with New Zealand’s Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA) to provide counsel to people who need help with the immigration process.

While there are not usually difficulties for people who want to move to New Zealand, there will occasionally be a situation where someone is not approved. If you are evaluated and it is decided that you do not meet the requirements for eligibility for a New Zealand Resident Visa, do not lose heart. Here at New Zealand Visa Expert, we take this seriously, and we are here to help you.

Our Immigration Adviser who works with New Zealand Visa Expert will inform you regarding various options that you may have. It may be possible that you can work to meet the requirements and apply at a later date. Also, there are other types of visas for which you may be able to apply, including short-term visitor visas, student visas or temporary work visas.


As an example, perhaps you received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a New Zealand Resident Visa through the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC), and you didn’t meet the eligibility requirements. The fact that you didn’t meet the requirements today doesn’t mean that you can’t meet the requirements at a later date and then qualify. If you work with New Zealand Visa Expert, we will show you why you didn’t qualify and help you decide if you can work to meet those requirements.

If you applied for a New Zealand Resident Visa and were denied, you might apply for a temporary work visa instead. A temporary work visa can open doors for you to apply for permanent residency in the future. The Immigration Adviser who collaborates with New Zealand Visa Expert will work with you to figure out the option that might be best for you at this time.

We have also begun working with a recruitment company in New Zealand that may help you find employment there, which might put you in a stronger position to apply for a New Zealand visa.

The good news is that there are always options available if you don’t qualify the first time. New Zealand Visa Expert stands by its commitment to helping you have the opportunity to move to New Zealand to live and work. Contact us today to see how we can help you!
