Skilled Migrant Residence

Take an in depth look at how most people move to New Zealand

Karen and family, Dorset

As you’d expect we were quite dubious about immigration consultants and the associated costs.

There’s very mixed feedback on the forums, some say “why bother, we did it ourselves” and others report that “The consultant was of little help we had to do all the work anyway, so it’s a lot of money for very little” and yet others said that “without them we would never have made it”.

So we were unsure whether to go it alone or not. In the end we decided that there were complications and naunces with our application which really meant that we needed someone on our side to advise and help us.We didn’t regret our decision Sean was very supportive and was able to give us good information, advice and support throughout our application process and with a final push from him we got our full residency visa.

It really is a bit of a mine field and we have no hesitation in recommending Sean’s services to other immigration applicants.

Yours sincerely
Karen and family, Dorset

Once you have decided that you want to emigrate to New Zealand one of the big decisions is whether it is worth paying the extra expense for the expertise of an immigration company.

After attending an emigration expo, we decided to go to a one-to-one interview with Sean from Immigration Partners. The free interview was a no risk way of exploring the possibility of us being eligible to make the move and also a chance to decide whether we needed support to do it. Sean impressed us with his no-nonsense attitude and his honesty. We returned home and discussed the pros and cons of using his company and came to the conclusion that such a life-changing process required guidance from an expert.

From the moment we signed contracts with Immigration Partners, Sean guided us towards our goal, first advising us to apply for jobs on the skills shortage list for Neil, which resulted in us having a holiday combining interviews with interested companies. That was in November 2010 and just before the end of November we heard that he had been successful and had an engineering post waiting for him. Then everything started moving very quickly indeed! Sean and his colleagues completed forms, took details, arranged work permits, contacted authorities and constantly kept in touch so that we never felt we were on our own.

It didn’t all go according to plan (thanks to the postal service at Christmas) but whenever we hit a problem we only had to ring and Sean sorted it out, and sometimes we just rang because we were stressed and he was able to calm us down and reassure us that all was in order. He was so patient and kept promising us that all would be well, that our difficulties were not unusual.

We arrived in New Zealand with work permits at the end of January 2011 and found a house to rent, bought two cars and Neil took up his post. I found a part-time job and life could not be better. Sean still kept in contact because he was arranging our residency. He let us know on 19 May that we had been successful and we are now permanent residents of this wonderful country.

If you are contemplating this move we can highly recommend the services of Immigration Partners. It is a stressful undertaking and would have been much more stressful without their help. People here who have made the move and undertook the process without assistance are amazed at how quickly we managed to get here, but most of all how quickly we have achieved residency status. Most have taken at least 12 months and some two years. This would not have happened without the knowledge and experience of Sean and his colleagues.

The fees involved may appear to be expensive, but having heard of the problems and delays encountered by others who have chosen to ‘DIY’ we know that it is money well spent.

When we first decided to move to New Zealand, we didn’t think it was all that possible given our careers. We spoke to various different agents, who advised we had a shot, but basically we had to cough up somewhere between £5-10k to find out! We decided we may be chasing a dream we just couldn’t achieve.

One lunchtime I was ‘googling’ on my phone and stumbled across a download that offered a lot of advice, so I emailed the guy with a few questions. He gave me extremely detailed answers and didn’t try to ‘sell’ anything to me. He was happy to help and certainly knew his stuff, his name was Sean Collins. From that moment on we knew that Immigration Partners was the right company for us. Sean knew exactly how to get us what we wanted.

Sean was always able to calm me down, as I came out before my husband and had many panicky moments, but after speaking with him I always felt better. I am sure at times he would loved to have not answered the phone, but he never lost patience with me and was always very thorough, he was even working on my time a lot of the time!

I have been here for almost 4 months now and definitely have Sean to thank for that!

Thank you Sean and Immigration Partners 🙂

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank Sean Collins and his team for the help and support in obtaining visas for overseas. Sean was on call most hours of the day to answer any queries, Sean was very understanding, professional and his knowledge was second to none. I would recommend Sean and his team to anybody considering moving overseas.

Thank You.

I have pleasure in recommending the service provided by Sean Collins and his team. From our very first meeting I have found Sean to be very personable, friendly and approachable and always willing to answer any queries or concerns without any hesitation (even though I am sure he will have heard many of them thousands of times before). His professional attitude has made the Visa application process simpler and a considerably less stressful experience than it would have been without his help.

Throughout the entire application process nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Sean and he has always responded to our communications promptly keeping us fully informed. I feel that Sean has often gone the extra mile providing advice on the ‘next stage’ in re-location giving us useful contacts to assist with business matters and accommodation concerns.

Sean was always able to calm me down, as I came out before my husband and had many panicky moments, but after speaking with him I always felt better. I am sure at times he would loved to have not answered the phone, but he never lost patience with me and was always very thorough, he was even working on my time a lot of the time!

Sean has definitely made the immigration process more enjoyable and I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who might be considering relocating to New Zealand.

After deciding to move to New Zealand, I was faced with the mine-field of choosing the right visa and ensuring I had all the correct paper work in order. I contacted Sean for some help and it was one of the best decisions I made.

Sean was incredibly helpful, thoughtful and professional. He went through everything with me stage by stage and happily answered the million and one questions I asked him day in day out. He made it stress-free for me, and I couldn’t have done it without him. Sean went over and above my expectations every time.

I now have my two year work visa and can’t wait to start my life in NZ – and it’s mostly thanks to Sean. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you again.

We are over the moon with the professional and efficient way Immigration Partners handled our Long Term Business Visa application. Sean’s regular e-mails and quick replies kept us in the picture and guided us through all aspects of preparing the paperwork for our application and information regarding resettling and schools. Sean takes on the whole families need in making the move to NZ not just the visa application itself.

We were amazed by the speed in which our application was processed and granted, only four months from meeting Sean for the first time to our application being granted! We have found Sean’s experience and contacts invaluable and cannot imagine how we would have done it without him. NZ here we come.

Sean has made our dream possible!We decieded to take the plunge and emigrate to New Zealand as we are looking for a less stressful life than the one we have here in the UK. We were given the best advice to opt for a Long Term Business Visa (LTBV) which would suit our circumstances.The process was explained to us very professionally and on a face to face basis which put us at total ease. Sean kept us informed every step of the way and was very supportive.

We found the whole experience of dealing with Sean to be very professional and personable.Nothing was ever to much trouble and he updated us from start to finish. We have already recommended Sean to our friends who are in the process of emigrating to New Zealand and would not hesitate to recommend to other people.Thanks again

Craig’s Success Story

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the assistance you have provided me with during mine and Savanah’s Permanent Residency application.Your availability, even during your honeymoon, and your prompt feedback to all of my questions was always appreciated by my family and me. This is especially true regarding all my “doubting Thomas” questions trying to ensure the validity of your services as I was totally paranoid of being taken for a ride as any dealing over the net is based on trust and one can easily be fooled by empty promises.You managed to put me at ease, which is no easy task J, with your professional service and as a result I became increasingly excited about the entire process of moving to NZ.People often said why use an agent/consultant, they are too expensive, deal directly with INZ.Well I do not regret it for a second, despite the costs, as I had piece of mind and did not had to deal with any beaurocracy at any point during the application process, well only with the RSA arrangements.

Due to your assistance I am now in possession of my NZ residency and am so looking forward to my big move in the coming month.If in the Auckland area it would be great to finally meet so that I can say thanks in person.All the best for you and your family and the year ahead and hope it is a prosperous one.

Cheers

Benjamin Success Story

I was introduced to Sean Collins after 8 months of researching the possibilities for immigrating to New Zealand with my wife and baby. I had reached a decision not to use an immigration agency and felt I was well equipped & capable of lodging my own application directly with INZ.
Sean put me in touch with a top notch legal consultant in the event I required such services in my business dealings. He took a personal interest in my plans to establish my business, and introduced me to key players already well established & operating in my same industry within New Zealand.

I subsequently decided to contract the services of his company. This proved to be my saving grace when further down the line, after I relocated my family to NZ, I was confronted with a host of unforeseen personal problems that impacted on my business and significantly altered my circumstances. Sean was my only point of reference and in a sense, my anchor. His close attention to detail is just extraordinary. Sean’s grasp of the specifics of my case as well as his thorough understanding of the real challenges involved in starting a life and business in a foreign country enabled him to provide me with so much more than could be expected from an immigration advisor. Sean is articulate,thorough, and relentlessly reliable. He is a specialist in his field.

I highly recommend Sean & his company without reservation for having demonstrated the highest level of service, expertise and professionalism a client could hope for. I can be contacted by email on benvanderweide@yahoo.co.uk and will be happy to confirm the above.
