Services Offered

What We Offer

Compass Immigration offers clients a full range of migration services to cater for all your needs in moving to a new country. With skilled and licensed consultants on staff we can work with you on all types of visas (Temporary or Permanent; Skilled, Family, Business or other).

For individuals & Families:
Making a move to a new country is a big decision, and getting it right is paramount. Securing residence status and citizenship is generally the aim of most people and we feel it is important to establish their eligibility right from the start.

We do preliminary assessments for all our clients to assess their options and confirm eligibility for both temporary as well as residence visas.

A Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) Residence application is dependent on the applicant claiming 160 or more points. Our initial assessment includes a points calculation, based on the information provided by the client.

Similarly, we will assess your eligibility under all other visa categories.

Initial communication with offshore clients generally begins with emails, followed by a Skype discussion (or similar) in order to get through the question & answer sessions, including an explanation of the different visa types & categories.

We like to ensure that clients have considered all options before taking the next step.

For Employers:
Our services for business revolve around processing employee visa documentation; obtaining Accredited Employer status and / or Approval In Principle.

Settlement Services:
Once in New Zealand you will need a local to show you the ropes and get you started in your new life. The Compass range of settlement services is designed around the personal requirements for you and your family. Our level of involvement depends on how much assistance you feel you will need in those first few days and weeks.

How can we help ?

Permanent Residency

The majority of our clients are looking to obtain Permanent Residency, which is a status that allows a new migrant to work and live in New Zealand, and travel freely in & out of the country on a permanent basis.

Permanent Residency is the end goal unless you are wishing to come to New Zealand for a short-term holiday, study, working holiday or fixed-term job placement.

There are a number of ways to achieve permanent residency depending on what you can bring to the country in terms of skills, business or investment. The majority of migrants apply for Residence under the Skilled Migrant Category but there are a number of other categories that may suit your situation more.

Compass Immigration New Zealand will provide you with the professional advice and guidance to ensure that you have the greatest chance of success under a particular visa category. If you qualify under more than one category, our consultants will advise you on the “pros and cons” of each to help you make an informed choice as to the best way to proceed.

Knowing you are eligible for a permanent residence visa is the starting point for planning any move to the other side of the world. If you have not already done so, now would be a good time to get things started by completing Your Personal Assessment Questionnaire.

Temporary Visa's

Are you looking to pop over to New Zealand to experience the lifestyle or just check up on the work environment?

Not everyone is looking to make that lifetime move to New Zealand, for some it will be a matter of a couple of years work, a year of study or a working holiday to fund that trip through the country.

In any event if you are looking for assistance in getting that short term or fixed term visa Compass Immigration can help.

Email us with the details and we will give you a quote.

Business & Investor Category Visas

New Zealand has an active and growing economy with many underdeveloped markets for creative entrepreneurs to tap into.

If you are moving to New Zealand with a business or as an investor there are a number of options available to you which are described under this heading.

The most popular of these are the Entrepreneur Work Visa which is a precursor to Permanent Residence under the Entrepreneur Category. Of more specialist interest is the Investor Categories, open to those with at least $3 million dollars to invest.

Talk to us about your timetable, plans and expectations and we will work through the best solution to suit you.

Business Services

We offer a range of business services for employers dealing with the issues of recruiting international staff, including applications for Employer Accreditation and / or Approval in Principle to recruit offshore candidates, getting them to New Zealand and then keeping them here.

Feel free to email us to discuss.
