New Zealand Immigration & Emigration

Incoming Visa Support for Organisations

When your organisation recruits or transfers staff into New Zealand, visa  mistakes can cost you and your programmes heavily, if not handled correctly:

  • The hiring of ineligible aliens, even if they claim they are allowed to work here can expose your firm to heavy fines, criminal offence record, and adverse publicity.
  • Lack of experience dealing with the Immigration Service of New Zealand can cause unnecessary delays and rejections of visa  applications for your incoming staff.
  • Ignorance of the many types of visas and work permits can cause your key staff and HR personnel to apply for unnecessarily difficult or restrictive categories of visas and permits.
  • Incorrectly or incomplete prepared applications can cause unnecessary delays or rejections of visas for your staff.
  • Lack of knowledge of the immigration laws, policies and procedures of New Zealand can cause your staff and HR personnel to misjudge the time frames needed to complete the application process; resulting in missed deadlines.
  • Staff can misunderstand the terms and conditions of their visas, then accidentally violate the migration laws; resulting in their deportation.
  • If you are not recognised as an Accredited Employer, you are prevented from the “fast-tracking” needed to get your overseas candidates into the country; under the Talent Visa programme. (You are also denied the cost savings of this accreditation.)
For over 20 years, Woburn International has helped eligible organisations and individuals to cross national borders.
  • Woburn prepare and submit, for non-New Zealanders, the best possible applications for appropriate visas, residency, etc. here. Woburn International have helped over 2000 people from more than 38 different countries to live and work here.
  • We are able to arrange lodgement of applications in the most appropriate destination.

We reduce the risk and minimise the delays and costs for you, by ensuring your staff submit all the necessary documents, and that their applications are written in the most advantageous (but always honest) way.

Woburn has the highest success rate, and we are proud of our record: Of all those thousands of visa  applications we have sent to the New Zealand Government, not one has ever been rejected (when the

person has been honest with us – about their health, criminal history, and so-on). We will not submit applications on your behalf; unless we know you will be successful.

As a result, both individual and organisational customers world-wide refer us to others.

Our service is supportive, professional and strictly confidential.

Woburn has a good working relationship with the New Zealand Immigration Service. This ensures your staff applications will be given very fair and proper treatment.

We are up-to-date with the latest changes in the New Zealand Immigration Laws and the practices of the New Zealand Immigration Service. This ensures that all applications will be correct.

The Immigration Laws are confusing and hard to interpret. The policies and procedures in the Immigration Service are often changing. Our applications on your behalf are professionally prepared by experts to maximise the chance of acceptance.

We can save your firm time, money and distraction. We can lower the risk that your staff applications will fail. To learn how, just email or phone us.

Visas for Overseas Assignments

When your organisation assigns staff from New Zealand (or other countries) to another country, visa and work permit mistakes can cost you and your assignments heavily; if not done correctly:

  • The hiring of ineligible aliens, even if they claim to be allowed to work there, can expose your firm to heavy fines, criminal records, adverse publicity and (in extreme cases) the imprisonment of management.
  • Lack of experience dealing with the immigration departments of those countries can cause unnecessary delays and rejections of visa and work permit applications for your key outgoing staff.
  • Ignorance of the many types of visas and work permits can cause your key staff and HR personnel to apply for unnecessarily difficult or restrictive categories of visas and permits.
  • Incorrect or incomplete applications can cause unnecessary delays or rejections of visas and work permits for your key staff.
  • Lack of knowledge of the immigration laws and procedures of those “target” countries can cause your key staff and HR personnel to misjudge the currently-certain time frames needed to clear the application process; resulting in missed deadlines.
  • Staff can misunderstand the terms and conditions of their visas and permits, then accidentally violate the migration laws; resulting in their deportation.
For over 20 years, Woburn International has helped organisations and individuals to cross national borders.
