Why prepare your migration to New Zealand during COVID-19?

How soon will you be able to make the move?

A large part of the word is in lockdown, with closed borders due to Coronavirus. This can be an appropriate time to lay the foundation for your future migration to New Zealand. Getting your head around the process and the documentation required can take some time and the team at New Zealand Shores remains fully operational during lockdown to assist you throughout this process.

In normal circumstances, it may take several months to gather all the required documentation and fine-tune your job search strategy. Prepare now and take our free eligibility assessment. Save time by being ready once borders reopen: getting a head start on documentation will enable you to commence your job search earlier too.

Keep in mind we are still submitting visa applications daily and as soon as normal visa processing resumes, being in the queue already will save you time, thus allowing you to travel to New Zealand as soon as restrictions are lifted.

More than ever, New Zealand is a fantastic country to relocate to.

We are here for you!

The team at New Zealand Shores are all working and readily available by phone, email and Skype.  Please reach out to us so we can prepare for when the borders re-open and make your migration happen 🙂. In the meantime, if you haven't already take our eligibility assessment!

Why take an eligibility assessment?

You will be assigned a personal licensed advisor to assess your eligibility to move to New Zealand, and provide you with a roadmap to success containing which New Zealand visas you qualify for and how to achieve your goal of a new life in New Zealand.

Not only this, but you also gain access to SmartMove, full of valuable tools and information.  As soon as you know you’re eligible, you can access our approved job vacancies and useful guides such as how to write your CV for the New Zealand job market.
