We can help you in several ways.

Choose New Zealand has three Licensed Immigration Advisers, and they are all permitted to give you advice on all visa issues about coming to New Zealand, and staying here. We encourage both short-term stays for the great experiences you will get here, and long term stay, migrating through the well-established Study Pathway to Residence.

And if you want to migrate directly, without studying here, that may be possible. Have a look at our Migration Options page. If you qualify for migration, we can help.

Whether studying or not, we can give you help and support, both pre-arrival, and while you are in New Zealand, and possibly in your own language. Please see our Support Services pages. For young students, we can even offer a Guardian Service.

For those wanting to study here

1. Choose New Zealand represents only good quality schools – high Academic standards with a supportive study environment. Our website shows all of our member schools and institutions in New Zealand.

2. We can give you advice and help you apply for a course at a school, and apply for a Student Visa. If you are off-shore, and want a local person to talk to, we can usually refer you to an agent to help.

3. And for those long-term students who may be entitled to stay in New Zealand after completion of their studies, we can give advice and support to apply for

  • Your Post-Study Work Visa (Open - one year)
  • Your Post-Study Work Visa (Employer supported - two years)
  • Your Residency, when eligible
