Immigration Updates from Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd.
Since the New Zealand borders reopened after two years on 1st August 2022, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has been flooded with Visa applications. These applications are from partners and relatives looking to join their loved ones, students wanting to study on campus, skilled migrants wishing to work onshore, Working Holiday Visa holders and tourists wanting to holiday in scenic New Zealand. 

The New Zealand government is trying to remain attractive and competitive in the global market, where skilled workers and high-quality students have multiple choices. Only time will tell how successful they will be. All one can say at this stage is that they need to be fleet-footed, practical, and non-bureaucratic and connect with the stakeholders on multiple platforms to remain relevant in this changing world. The government is taking various steps to plug the skills gaps.
