As you consider making your move to New Zealand, it’s important to know that there are various kinds of visas in New Zealand. These include long-term resident visas, short-term visitor visas, temporary work visas, and student visas. Each visa is different, and there are advantages and various requirements for each one.

NewZealandVisaExpert provides assistance to foreign nationals who want to move to New Zealand and need to apply for a New Zealand Skilled Migrant Category Resident Visa or a temporary work visa. Here is a breakdown of each type of New Zealand visa:

Long-term Resident Visa

A long-term resident visa is geared towards skilled foreign workers who want to live, work, and study in New Zealand for a long time. Those with a long-term visa will receive some benefits and will have the option to apply for New Zealand citizenship after living in the country for at least five years and meeting other specific requirements. NewZealandVisaExpert can help you apply for a long-term resident visa for you and your family.

Short-term Visitor Visa

A short-term resident visa is for people who only want to live in New Zealand for a short period of time for various reasons such as to be with family or another short-term activity such as a vacation. Because this visa is only for a specific period of time, the benefits and eligibility for citizenship are not the same as the long-term visas.

Temporary Work Visa

A temporary work visa is specifically for a skilled foreign worker who is authorized to work and live in New Zealand for a specific period of time. Family members are often able to qualify for this visa or another visa as well. Those with a temporary work visa may have the option to apply for a New Zealand Resident Visa if they meet the other eligibility requirements. NewZealandVisaExpert is available to help you find your best visa application option.

Student Visa

As the name implies, a student visa is specifically for those who want to study in New Zealand. This is much like the temporary work visa, in that it’s only for a specific period of time. There are certain benefits for this visa as well, and the option to apply for a New Zealand temporary work visa or resident visa if the student decides to work in New Zealand upon graduation or completion of their educational program and if they meet the eligibility criteria.

If you have any questions along the way, the Immigration Advisor who works with NewZealandVisaExpert is available to help you. Contact us today to see how New Zealand Visa Expert can help you get started on your move to New Zealand.
