KPMG’s Immigration practice in New Zealand is comprised of New Zealand trained licensed advisers and a robust support team, poised to provide services to organisations and individuals requiring immigration assistance for New Zealand.

With a fundamental emphasis on compliance, the KPMG Immigration team can help businesses and individuals navigate the shifting immigration landscape.

With New Zealand becoming a highly desirable destination for skilled migrants and investors, KPMG are well placed to provide professional visa assistance to people wishing to relocate to New Zealand or for those wishing to make New Zealand their permanent home.  We will help obtain the necessary New Zealand visas, determine the most suitable visa categories, and advise on immigration topics and processes. We can also assist with exemption requests despite the border closures for persons who meet the critical requirements. COVID-19 has caused a lot of uncertainty with regards to the visa status of individuals and workers, mainly due to the changes in immigration policy and the many extensions offered by Immigration New Zealand. To add to this, the residence visa queues are lengthy and add further stress to visa holders who have temporary visas due to expire.

Our team at KPMG can provide advice in all these situations and give you and your employees peace of mind. Our goal is to deliver accurate and prompt visa assistance to our clients to make the visa process as worry-free and seamless as possible.

Our services include:

  • Work Visa assistance for individuals or employees.
  • Residence Visa assistance for individuals or employees (under all categories).
  • Assessment of visa requirements for in-bound New Zealand business trips, assignments, transfers and hires.
  • Assessment of New Zealand visa requirements for potential hires, including visa options and timeframes.
  • Assessment of current employee visas, including advice on their next visa options if required.
  • Personalised advice for HR managers on the initiation and implementation of immigration procedures.
  • Tracking of visa expiry dates with timely alerts and prompt handling of renewal processes.
  • Compliance assistance through audits and reviews of companies’ immigration procedures/documentation to verify compliance with relevant immigration law.
  • Employer accreditation. 

Our team are here to help – please contact Caren Donald, Immigration Manager if you require assistance.
