Immigration have done it again; without any prior warning they closed the LTBV category! Possible candidates to start and operate a business have been told to wait till March 2014 when a new policy will be made public! Between "Sorry, we are closed for business" and "Welcome to New Zealand" those possible candidates may have found another destination!

The first reaction from the market is that people are really peefed-off, and I suggest that Immigration could have handled this closure of the LTBV and the opening of a new category much better and thus retain possible good business people for New Zealand.

Wishing you all a great Christmas and a happy New Year!

Thanks for your support and trust in me and my team this last year, I really appreciate that, it's more worth than any amount of money!!!

IPT Decisions

The quality of decisions from INZ appear to decrease! Please refer to the Annual Report from the IPT for 2017 where on average 33% of Appeals with the IPT is allowed! A news paper article in 1 NEWS NOW dated 21/02/2019 confirms that four out of every ten appeals against INZ are upheld! That is an increase from 33% to now 40% of appeals being allowed or upheld against INZ!
