INZ Residency Programme & South African visitor visas

Immigration New Zealand Residency Programme

We have received notification from Immigration New Zealand that, effective immediately, there are some changes to the New Zealand Residency Programme.
This impacts:

  • Parent Category (which is temporarily closed)
  • Skilled Migrant Residency (threshold raised to 160 points and updated English language requirements introduced)


For more information please visit the Immigration NZ website which has detailed descriptions on the changes and Q&A sections which will help answer questions you may have. Also please feel free to contact your New Zealand Shores licensed adviser who will be happy to answer any questions you have.


South African Visitor Visa changes

For As of 21st November 2016, South Africa will no longer be a visa waiver country which means all South African citizens will need to make a formal application for a visitor visa and have this approved before travelling to New Zealand. If you are a South African citizen and were intending to visit New Zealand after the 21st of November please get in touch with us today. You can read more information here:
