Your full attention and dedication towards moving to another country is required if you wish to experience a smooth transition from one country to the next. The more time you spend conducting research and learning about the country, the more likely it is that you’ll enjoy your new surroundings once you relocate to New Zealand.

Since the hardest part of immigration is trying to understand the different types of visas and which one to apply for, it is highly recommended that you hire a migration agent. They’ll point you in the right direction and do all they can to make sure that you qualify for a New Zealand visa. Their knowledge and experience will prove invaluable to you during this process. Some of the country’s visas even come with favorable advantages including access to public assistance programs.

When you apply for a visa or citizenship in any form, you are agreeing to remain in compliance with all foreign policies as you live in the nation. Make sure you study the laws for immigration, import and simply living in New Zealand. Sometimes, it helps to join an expat group or community so that you have others from all over the world in the same position you are. This is a great way for everyone in the group to make friends and become more familiar with the nation’s culture, laws and lifestyle. It’s good to remember that you aren’t alone, and just like you- there are many newcomers hoping to make a living in the beautiful country.

The Requirements for NZ Citizenship

The requirements for New Zealand citizenship or residency depend on what type of via or grant you apply for. Every single type of citizenship offered to those who wish to enter its borders is based on your reasoning and intentions for being in the country. The requirements for each type of visa or grant for residency is different from another. However, there are certain documents and forms of proof you’ll need to provide regardless including your passport, license, birth certificate and other pertinent forms of paperwork and proof.

If you wish to apply for permanent citizenship, you’ll need to file for a permanent resident visa or citizenship grant. Both have different stipulations. A permanent resident visa is the easiest way to gain citizenship but requires you to reside in the country for at least 5 years before you can qualify.

Other than applying for permanent citizenship and residency, you can choose to apply for visas relating to anyone coming to the country for work, study or business. These visas are much easier to obtain but you must meet the criteria to be eligible for approval. Even though you’ll receive guidance and help from your migration agent if you chose to hire one, you may also call the New Zealand Embassy for current immigration policies and import requirements.

Advice for Applying for Citizenship by Grant

  • You must plan to stay living in New Zealand if you’re granted citizenship.
  • You will likely be required to have been living in New Zealand with residence status for five years before you apply.
  • You must know English well enough to handle everyday situations like shopping or banking without assistance.
  • If you’ve been convicted of traffic offenses, benefit fraud or have any convictions, it may very well affect your application.
  • You must have knowledge of and understand the responsibilities and privileges of New Zealand citizenship.

Satisfied Customers

“My experience with A-1 Auto Transport in all aspects except one was excellent. From getting a quote (which was the least expensive of all the quotes I received), to the treatment of my sister, and the courteousness and efficiency of the accounting department (had to have a check returned which was promptly done), and the dealing with me and consoling me by my charming sales representative, Nicole, every time I telephoned, to the timelyness of getting my vehicle to me, was it a pleasure dealing with A-1. I will definitely refer to you guys anyone I know moving a vehicle. By the way, the one and only area lacking is your GPS tracking. Apparently it's not automated enough; mine still says "vehicle on interstate." (smile) Thanks guys. Sincerely, Alex D.”

“I would just like to thank you for an excellent job in moving my car cross country. I will be using you again in the future, and have recommended you to others that will be moving cars shortly. Once again it was a pleasure to do business with you, and thanks again.”

“Before I agree to any terms and conditions, I do a little research about a company. I learned that A1 Auto Transport has been suggested even by my closest friends. I tried to send them a text message as a start and received a timely response. The entire process was a breeze. My car arrived in Maine in less than a week. I was amazed they had so many options to reach out to customers. All my requests were noted, and they reminded me of the status of my shipment. It may sound crazy, but it felt nice there is a company that would make you feel important even if you’re new at this kind of thing. Good job guys!”

“I took a photo of my Mazda sedan and sent it to Kansas using A1 Auto Transport. My car arrived in the same condition according to my sister. She told me the staff was very friendly. They even waited for my sister to send me the photos of my car with them. Such a reliable transport company!”

“I just wanted to say thanks for bringing my car Coast to Coast in October, 2005. It was my first auto transport shipment and a painless one to boot! My Beamer arrived intact w/o a scratch!!Β Special thanks to Emily and Maggie for their courteous patience with a minor error, and to Jim of Dispatch, who is now in Sales. Their friendly and polite customer service made it a truly commendable experience. You are "A1"!”
