Jignaben Maheshkumar Rathod. NZ resident visa - Partnership

Peter helped my husband get his visa in very little time so that he could be with me during our baby’s birth. No one could have made it happen other than Peter and I couldn’t be more grateful. He has helped us through every step of the process. He promptly responded to all my queries and was always available to help be it on call or via email. He had our back! After my partner received his temporary work visa, we even went to meet him in his office and he was very warm and welcoming. Peter guided us through the exact steps we needed to take to get my partner’s residency and clearly explained what evidence would be useful to provide to immigration. That being said, I was highly confident that my partner would receive his resident visa before his work visa expired and yet again, Peter made it happen the second time around. My experience of working with Peter has been extremely pleasant and smooth. I would recommend anyone and everyone seeking advice for immigration purposes to consult with Peter as his expertise and knowledge are extremely valuable. He has brought my family to me in my country and I will always be thankful to him. All the best Peter! You have our good wishes.

Family Cronje, SMC, Work to Residence Work Visa, 2021 Residence Visa

"Dear Peter, I want to thank you for your consistent communication and your way of explaining everything in a simple language for P and myself. You even took it on board to chase our appeal to see if there was any updates for us to know about. You were helpful in making sure that we had references from everyone possible so P had every possible chance to enable her to win her appeal. We are so lucky to have you through this process and would recommend you to anyone. First thing P said was you were so easy to understand as English being her second language. So a huge thank you for representing P and we of course are so lucky to have this second chance for P I know she will show us all,  Including herself she has now got the ability to carry on with her studies. She has learnt getting help for her mental health is vital. So from both of us a huge thanks for your great work and help.

"Dear Peter,  I would like to thank you on behalf of my family. In 2018, I met you through my company, and you used your efficiency, quality and patience to help me and my family step by step from work visa and student visa to obtaining resident visa. When various changes have taken place in New Zealand's immigration policy, you help me control all kinds of opportunities and risks; when my husband is unable to enter the country because of the epidemic, you provide me with all kinds of advice to help me provide additional materials to prove our relationship; when I am anxiously waiting for a resident visa with my two children, you help me communicate with the immigration office patiently. With your help for four years, my family and I finally got a resident visa and achieved family reunion.

"Peter is not just a great Immigration Adviser, but also an amazing person, very empathic and friendly. We've processed 5 visas with him: 2 work visas, 2 partner visas, and finally our Residence from Work. We never have an issue in any of our applications; we obviously have many questions but Peter was always available for us, and he patiently answered every single question in detail because he has a deep understanding of the immigration system and he's always up to date with the latest changes (you can see he's very active posting about the latest changes on Immigration New Zealand). We always felt comfortable knowing that he was in charge of all the paperwork and communication with Immigration New Zealand. There's no way I can recommend him and his team more to anybody that is looking for immigration advice. Once again, thanks Peter, for everything you did for us.

Victorio Family, 2021 Residence Visa

"I would like to appreciate Peter in this letter. Peter helped me to get my open work visa, employer-sponsor work visa, and my resident visa. He gave me lots of professional suggestions when I made the decision and when I provided documents to INZ. He makes sure the documents and information provided to INZ are correct and matched to the requirement. Due to COVID-19, it took me long time to get my resident visa. I was quite worried about my resident visa, especially in the last stages. Peter gave me his full support and kept motivating me by helping me to contact with case officer. I do appreciate his efforts and support. I got my resident visa before Christmas this year. It is a wonderful Christmas gift for me. I will refer my friends to Peter in the future if they need Immigration Advisor as he is very professional and has rich experience in immigration. Thank you, Peter. All the best for you and your business.

Veronica de Oliveira & Francisco Ziliani, Partner Work Visa, Residence Family Partner

Me and my partner have just go approved for a residency visa under the Skilled Migrant Category. We have applied for it in December 2018, initially by our own. The first contact from the Case Officer was only in August 2020, when I also called Peter for advice. Since then, he took my case. During this time, ever since our first contact, he was extremely clear and precise. The communication was always really fast and effective, through emailand phone calls. I live in Tauranga, so for me it was the main point. I wish I had contacted him from the beginning of my application. Things would be a lot less tough and stressful. I would definitely recommend Peter for any kind of visa application. Thanks for everything and I'll get in touch when I am applying for the permanent residency.

Fernanda A Azuma, Residence throught the Skilled Migrant Category

Very exited my wife’s PR was finally approve. We want to say thanks to Peter who is our Immigration consultant. Our case is vary difficult to get success. My wife’s tourist visa was refused twice, So I also changed three different immigration consultants, However, Immigration New Zealand still not approved her tourist visa application and previous immigration consultants made lots of misleading. In the toughest time, My friend introduced PETER to me, At first I didn't have much hope, we just wanted to try, and there was no better way to us. Peter used his expertise and years of immigration experience to help us analysis and write explanation letter. In 2017 My wife’s tourist visa has been approved. In 2018 my wife come to New Zealand and stay with me, we start to apply one year Partner Work Visa, In 2019 we apply the Permanent Residence Visa, this is the most difficult one to get for us. Because my wife has been refused twice on tourist visa, and the immigration asked a lot of tricky questions. Peter was very patient and gave us the most direct advice and helped us write an explanation letter again.
Because of Peter’s profession Finally My wife’s Permanent Residence Visa has been approved on July/2020. For Peter, it may be just one of many applications, but it is of great significance to us. We can start our own lives in New Zealand. So we want to say thank you so much and wish all the best for you.

Yanzhe Wu & Pei Min, Visitor Visa, Partner Work Visa, Residence Family Partner

This is the second time my family has processed a visa application through Terra Nova Consultancy, especially during COVID-19
. In the context of the pandemic, we completed most of the data preparation before the lockdown, but entire New Zealand entered the lockdown. In this case, we must postpone and wait. The impact of the epidemic on New Zealand’s economy and employment is beyond our imagination. I pay close attention to the policy developments of the Immigration Bureau almost every day. For those who apply for visas, this is the case. A lot of torture and suffering. When the New Zealand government announced that the epidemic level was reduced to level 1, I communicated with Peter and listened to Peter's professional advice to prepare the materials and documents needed by the Immigration Bureau. And I successfully applied for a visa. I know that our family's visa application is successful, and we cannot do without Peter's professional advice and support. My family and I are very grateful to Terra Nova Consultancy.

Fam Wu, Essential Skills Work Visa, valid for 5 years

I would like to say thanks to Terra Nova Consultancy for its professional and accurate advice. I would like to say thanks to Peter for his great dedication towards my file and especially through this pandemic situation. I greatly appreciate his time and effort.

Anmol G, Essential Skills Work Visa, valid for 3 years

Dear Peter, Thank you very much for your hard work so that our family can get the visa smoothly. In July 2018 I went to New Zealand for further study and there was a very good opportunity for me to stay in school and work. In 2019 I was recommended by the school to get to know you. I am very satisfied with your seriousness and carefulness. You have understood all my work experience and learning experience, evaluated my overall situation, and given me a lot of very good suggestions. After graduation I have the confidence to apply for a work visa in the next step. I graduated successful|y in July 2019. You analysed the Immigration policy very carefully and immediately helped me apply for a work visa. Because my husband works in China, he only stays in New Zealand for two months a year to accompany us, but we have a very good relationship. According to the requirements of the Immigration Bureau for the relationship between husband and wife my family is very worried about my husband's visa, and you have given me a lot of good advice。 My husband and my children apply for a visa with me. At the same time you help me analyse the pros and cons of submitting a visa and how to provide documents and related materials to prove the relationship between husband and wife. Our visa was successfully approved less than two months after it was submitted. My whole family can stay in New Zealand to work and study smoothly. When I came to New Zealand I met many visa companies. I have handled my personal tourist visa, student visa, my husband's spouse's work visa and my child's student visa. You are the meticulous, serious and rigorous immigration consultant. You can do a very complete preparation for clients before applying for a visa. In the process of handling, you can help me think of all kinds of questions that the immigration officer can ask. My family is very grateful to you.l will introduce my friend to you in the future. You are a great immigration consultant.

Family Avdish, WV with Accredited Employer, WV Partner, SV's and VV

My name is Juliana Marques and I was reffered to Peter from Terra Nova Consulatancy by a friend of mine who also got her residency. It was in April 2017 and I had to go back to Brazil as I had my work visa declined. Due to the airline tickets' prices, I remained in NZ for 10 days after the deadline ordered by Imimgration. By this time I was already living with my boyfriend at the time and today my husband, Todd. The distance was devasteting. So I contact Peter through e-mail and he responded immediatly. My husband went to his office and we had our meetings through Skype. Peter managed to help me with my partner visitor visa, partner work visa, and my residency. The most important detail for me is the fact that he was always available to clarify any questions or worries that we could have. Peter kept me updated of all Immigration requests and decisions. Instructed me on how to prepare myself for each step of the process, documents, files, applications. In my opinion it's very important to trust in the person that is taking care of your legal issues and that's how I felt about Terra Nova Consultancy.

Thanks for all your support!   

Juliana and Todd, from Visitor Visa through Partner Work Visa to Partner Residence

“Peter has done an amazing job helping me to apply for Residency Visa through Skilled Migrant category! I came for consultation when my first try to apply for Residency Visa on my own had lapsed while I had complications renewing my work visa. I was working for a small company, and it was hard to prove that my salary was in range of competitive ones at the market. Giving a second try for my residency application, I decided to seek for qualifying help as I believed it was going to easy my panic, stress, and difficult situations - and I did not look back since that time. Not only Peter is licensed immigration advisor and has a long time experience helping people with their visas, but he also used to work as an Immigration Officer and hence has the vast knowledge of policies. He explained me my chances and options, and we build a strategy. Peter helped me organise the documents, took over the communications with the Immigration Officer and my employer, and composed all the necessary letters and replies during the process to support the application. Peter's service is welcoming, friendly, and hasle free. I belive qualified professional help is crucial in such a stressful situations as mine. Thank you, Peter! :)

“ Greetings! I am a client of Peter. In this long and difficult journey of immigration application, immigration consultant Mr Peter and interpreter Xiao Yang worked hard and patiently for a long period of time, due to their effort, my daughter and I finally gained our New Zealand permanent residencies. We are very grateful and thank Mr Peter and his team for their assistance in our immigration process. When we submitted our immigration application, it was a time when there was a tightening of immigration policies in various countries globally, New Zealand government was affected by this sentiment and also reduced the immigration quota every year, this negatively u=impacted our case. During the course of our application, the immigration office kept requesting more detailed additional documents. But no matter what challenges were presented to us, Mr Peter would find ways to resolve, he is professional and experienced, he was able to communicate well with the immigration office and gradually overcome hurdles to finally satisfied all document requirements and submitted to the immigration office. Due to Mr Peter’s guidance and assistance throughout the process, my daughter and I could reunite again in New Zealand in a short period of time. Once again, I express my deepest gratitude to Terra Nova Consultancy. Finally, best wishes to Terra Nova Consultancy, wish their consultancy business more success and prosperity.

"Around a year ago, we have decided to see if we had any chances to become New Zealand Residents. After two years with Work Visas, we still did not know if we were qualified enough to apply through Skilled Migrant Category. So a Brazilian friend told us about Peter and said: “The greatest thing about him is that he is 100% honest, if he thinks you do not have chances, he will say straight away; but if he says you will get it, you can trust him”. Thats sounded good enough for us. We had a special situation as well because I was about to leave the country for 5 months to study overseas. Thiago then went for his first meeting with Peter and he was very clear about our chances, how everything would work out and how long it could take to do it. Step by step, he told us exactly what to do, which documents we should validate and translate and how to present everything. Dealing with Immigration is never easy, especially when we are in a bigger city like Auckland. We get secure about how to fill the papers even the simplest things, and having Peter as an Adviser was a relief. We had an issue during our application  process and Peter was very supportive; giving us the real idea about the situation and, of course, guiding us through it. After all, within 7 months, we have got our Resident Visas and it is hard to describe this feeling: we feel free to do so many things in the country we chose to live, like study new things or think about business. It is amazing. There are no words to describe how professional Peter is. We will always be grateful for everything he did, and we always tell our friends to get him as a Visa Advisor because he is really good, and we know how important this is when you can not sleep waiting for immigration’s answer. Our biggest THANK YOU to Peter Hendrikx who helped us to make a dream come true.

"Dear Peter, Dank je wel! I can’t find any words to express my heart feeling to you. I am very happy and surprised that I can get the Residence Visa under the Skill Migrant Category within just b4 months time from EOI to the approval of Resident Visa. Please allow me to say Thank You again. Because of your professional service, I can achieve my dreaming result.I remembered that when I met you first time. After you reviewed my situation, you gave me an important recommendation, to get the qualified IELTS test result, brand score 6.5. After 5months’ time I got the IELTS result to meet you again. at that moment I was quite nerves and concerned about my application. You just told me “Don’t worry!” But I believed myself that you can help me to achieve what I want. From the beginning of Visitor Visa, EOI, Work Visa and Resident Visa, step by step. Under your professional and careful instruction, I just follow you to prepare the documents you need, you help me to get each step’s approval successfully. I am greatly appreciated by heart. One day when I received a phone call, at the beginning I thought that might be from Immigration office again, I am nervous again at that moment. I am surprised that I heard your voice, I thought that would be big problem happened, because you seldom gave me the phone call, normally you just sent me the email. Until you said CONGRATULATION to me, I was shocked and I can’t believe my ears. I can’t stay anything at that time. You used such a normal but special way to tell me this good new, to make a perfect ending of my Residence Visa application story. Here I am writing the letter to say Thank You to you, Peter. You give me the chance to start my career life in New Zealand. I will remember your help in  y life. I know PSV Eindhoven is very famous in your hometown. I hope you will like this logo.

"Hi Peter, I and my family would like to thank you for your assistance with my application for Resident visa under the Skilled Migration Category (SMC). You have been very professional from the word go and patiently explained the whole process. My application was further complicated as both my children were studying overseas ( one in Australia and one in Canada ) and the navigation of all paperwork required ( specially the medical ) was challenging at best. But you persevered right through the process and today we are bearing the fruit of your expert knowledge. We have been in NZ for the past 5 months now and are enjoying our life here immensely. I was highly impressed with your work and have recommended you to several of my friends/family to seek your assistance in any immigration matter. Once again – a very big THANK YOU Peter.

Manuel, Kalpana, Nateesha & Chirag, Residence through Skilled Migrant Category (SMC)

This is my tenth year in New Zealand. I had my partnership work visa for all these years. My resident application under sibling category was also being filed since 2011. Years and years passed by and nothing I could hear from New Zealand immigration system, only giving me frustration, panic and tension. Since I was sponsored by my maiden family, they were also worried I might go back to country Fiji. My prayers were answered when I was introduced to Peter Hendrikx of Terra Nova Consultancy. A big ambitious man, very affectionate and compassionate, courageous and humble, one will see in him at the first meeting. I was also surprised to see how he remembers his past clients. He sat in a very family atmosphere and calmly listened to my problem. There is a word called Impossible. But  for Peter Hendrikx, nothing is impossible. Let’s change this word to “I Am Possible”. His professionalism and expertise has brightened my life. WOW! I was granted Permanent Residence in 8 months. I still regret why I was running around all these years, searching for the best immigration consultant. Peter also helped my sister for her residency. My words of appreciation, gratefulness is not enough to express what you have brought in my life, but you are the person who makes others life easier and brighter. I will always remember you in my prayers for glowing my life. I will always live with your unseen efforts. You care about people. You care about people and it shows. You are generous with your time. Giving of your energy. Lavish with your unselfish deeds. I will remember your kindness to me. Thank you for brightening my world. With your thoughtfulness. It really meant a lot. My bold salute and hats off to Terra Nova Consultancy. A BIG BIG THANK YOU, VINAKA VAKALEVU AND SUKHRAN-WAL-HAMDULLILIAH.

It was an impressive scene that I first met Peter in his office. When I said to him I hoped some day the immigration officer could say to me “Welcome to New Zealand”, he corrected me, “No, you’ve been in New Zealand”. I recognised these words gave me more confidence and motive. Just as a kind of energy, it had been pushing me to hard work until I got the Resident Visa in April this year. This scene took place in October 2015, which would be engraved on my memory.At that time, I had graduated from a cooking school and was just employed by a restaurant in a chef. New Zealand beautiful view and quiet life had been attracting me to stay here, but the Resident Visa was an insurmountable barrier. During that time, many different kinds of informations and advice made me dizzy. Even someone suggested me to apply for in two years. I met Peter luckily while I was not sure how to do. After hearing my case seriously, Peter clearly gave me his opinion and advice. He thought my condition should meet the requirement and advised me to apply for Resident Visa asap. After that, he started his job. It included checking and sorting out my files, training me how to face an interview and how to answer a wide variety of questions, and so on. As for me, I only had two things after that. One was hard work, the other one was to follow Peter’s guidance. Thanks God! Just in four months, I got the Visa. I’m really excited now, especially, I want to say many thanks to Peter. So I wrote these words to express my mood at this time. Also, I hope everyone who want to get a Resident Visa to share my experience. I hope it’s helpful for you. God bless you!

"Dear Peter, I am writing this letter for a big thank you for getting me the approval of a Resident visa under the skill migrant category. I am really proud and lucky enough for having you as my Immigration Consultant. When I applied for my resident visa I was in a lot of stress because of the fact it will be a tough task to do but the way you presented my documents and the way you put your efforts towards it, is really appreciable. The main good thing about your is you are really straight forward person. When I cam to you about my application in last November 2014, I was thinking about waiting for the work permit visa and then after applying for resident visa but it was you who gave me a guidance not to wait for 2-3 years and you immediately put my application as a resident visa without any hesitation. And you were right, I can see the result in my favour within only seven months which is unbelievable. Because of your right guidance I managed to save a lot of time and money so I will highly recommend you as a immigration adviser to my friends and other people who are looking for proper guidance and visa related queries. And finally a big hug to you and thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for everything which you have done for my. Thank you.

"We moved to New Zealand back in early 2010 under entrepreneur long term business visa. We known Peter nearly a year and half before our arrival. Everything was going well exactly according to plan, and we thought the process of permanent residency will be smooth and hassle free. But due to issues related to one of our kids and other odd complications, within a short period of time, everything turned up side down which resulted our appreciated for permanent residency was declined and then application for further extension was not successful. We found ourselves in a very tough situation which was not easy for us to cope with it. So we had to take our case for jurisdictional review and finally we got our residency. Our circumstances was very exceptional at so many levels but what we are trying to say is, you never know what is waiting for you around the corner. Specially those whom planning to move to New Zealand and ultimately get settled through permanent residency, should always keep in mind that the process is complicated and sometimes INZ adds to this complexity for variety of reasons and I am not going to debate it on this occasion but you need someone like Peter to help you through this process. When we look back to last seven years since day one we got to know Peter, I think it is safe to say that if his wealth of knowledge and experience was not there we will probably be lost half way through the process, end up facing huge consequences. I can’t find satisfying words to thank you Peter, what you have done means a lot and we never forget your assistance and support for the rest of our lives. He is a valuable asset for this industry. We strongly recommend to anybody wish to apply for any type of New Zealand visas, just use Peter’s professional service which himself and his team deliver at personal level, he is a safe bet and you will be treated by Terranova consultancy as a human being not just another file or number.

"Hi, greetings. My name is Rinku Madhar and i am a student in New Zealand. The J. Peter Hendrikx was my immigration consulted. I have got my student visa with advice of Mr. J. Peter. The journey or process to get visa was very hard. Because my visa was declined by immigration due to work more than 20 hours during my previous study and immigration gave me 42 days’ notice to leave New Zealand. The immigration of New Zealand put my visa status under Section 61. My pervious immigration advisor returned my file and advised me to leave country and he was not agreeing to take further steps with under Section 61 application. So, I came to J. Peter and explained him about my visa application. Then J. Peter loge my file under Section 61. With the efforts of Mr. J. Peter my section 61 file accepted and finally I got my student visa. I got my visa with help of J. Peter experience and efforts.  So, I recommend to my friends and colleagues to take advice from Mr. J. Peter. He is very well experience immigration advisor and consulted.

Rinku Madhar, S61 Student Visa

"From the outset the very nature of my residents application would take several years to achieve due to the backlog of applications to New Zealand Immigration. Peter Hendrikx and the Terra Nova Consultancy team worked tirelessly for 3 years to secure my residents visa. I was living overseas during this time and Peter kept me up to date with every step he made toward securing my visa. At times I thought I would never be granted residency but Peter kept my hopes up high and continued to persevere with some of the additional demands required by NZI. It was not until after I received my visa that I found out Peter had been working on my behalf during a prolonged sickness he had. Who could ask for more? I would highly recommend Peter and the TNC team to anyone seeking immigration services. My family and I thank him for his relentless professionalism in securing my visa and for his courteous and congenial manner.’'

"Dear Peter. Thank you so much for your help in my residence visa application. I am J.Liu. I was applying residence visa under entrepreneur plus category. I believed my case was very strong, but my previous immigration adviser told me she can't process my case because of insufficient investment. Therefore I turned to Peter for help. Peter showed high profession and efficiency in my case. He argued with the case officer about the investment items one by one, and at last successfully convinced the case officer that my investment is sufficient. He showed not only expertise in immigration laws, but also broad knowledge in accounting and business. As a result, I got my residence visa in only less than 2 months. I am so lucky to find Peter representing me. I believe he is one of the best immigration advisors in Auckland, especially in Entrepreneur immigration.

"Hi! Peter. I was so excited when I heard that I finally got my PR. I can't wait any longer to share the amazing news with my family. And now, I would like to thank you for your great help with my application. When the policy changed last July, I was so worried about my application. Getting 6.5 in IELTs seems to be very difficult. During my inquiry in some other agents, all I got was that I have to get 6.5 even though I had studied and worked here for approximately 8 years. Then, one day, when I mentioned my situation with one of my workmates, who also got PR through you and the TNC, he suggested me to visit you and see if you can deal with my case. Fortunately, after you read my case, you said you can get my case done if I can get 6.0. Although there was only half-an-point difference, it could be much easier anyway, isn't it? Lucky enough, I passed the test a month later. You collected all my files for the application and submitted them to the Immigration. Everything went so well that it was totally out of my expectation. At each stage, I got the reply from the immigration much faster than my friend did. And I thought the reason why it happened was that you got professional skills and affluent experience in the area. By the way, you are quite a kindhearted person that helped me so much. The moment I got the PR, I became more reassuring to expect the coming of my first child. Together with my wife, thank you again and wish all go well with you.

"Always hire an expert. I would like to thank Peter for his guidance and help for my Permanent Residency application. I was introduced to Peter through word of mouth, so I went to speak to him about my case. He guided me very well and told me about what was required of job to get PR. I applied for PR applicationin July 2011 and in Feb 2012 I got the permanent residency under the Skilled Migrant Category. I tell you from my personal and life experience (as much as I have) that always hire an expert. I tried to deal with Immigration New Zealand myself but it is a very difficult job to deal with them, everybody tries to give their own interpretation of immigration rules, so I decided to find an expert and I was introduced to Peter. In first meeting he told me clearly that the job I had at that time is not good enough for SMC, so I found another job and applied for PR through him, with his proper guidance and clear communication, things work out positively and I got PR in 8 months. I really appreciate his help and thanks for the same. In the end I would definitely recoomend him and recommend others to always hire an expert, although you have to pay for it but it gives you a peace of mind.

A friend of ours recommended us this company as they assisted them with their applications. We really enjoyed working with TNC, its friendly staff and especially J peter Hendrikx. The payments were divided into three parts so it was easier to pay smaller amounts of money at time. Peter and TNC staff helped us to compile all the documents we needed fill as it wasn't the easiest case.

In 2011 I signed up a contract with Peter; he assisted me in granting Work Visa followed by Residence Visa application under the Skilled Migrant Category. Both applications were successfully approved. It was a great pleasure to work with Peter. To deal with Immigration New Zealand is always a nerve-racking process however Peter managed to make it less stressful, effective and reasonably in timely manner. He was always available to meet with me and willing to answer any of my questions. There are no doubts that Peter is a true specialist in what he is doing.

"Dear Peter, first of all, I sincerely appreciate you and your team successfully assisting my brother in obtaining his Permanent Residence Visa. My parents and my family were granted New Zealand Residence 5 years ago, as the only and last family member, my brother was living alone in China during this period. In 2009, I tried to assist my brother to apply for a Residence Visa under the family sibling policy due to the economy and for time saving reasons. The application was accepted and processed, but we found that we were unable to response to the questions in the letters from the INZ Case Officer. Therefore, we contracted you, Peter. Because of your professional advise and direction, my brother’s Residence Visa application was finally approved in a short time. For my experience, looking for a right and experienced Immigration Advisor that is most important, because as an individual, we do not clearly understand the Immigration policies and laws. I strongly recommend Peter and Terra Nova Consultancy Ltd, because Peter used to be an Immigration Officer and he has got plentiful immigration experience. I really appreciate my friend who introduced Peter to me, and I really realy appreciate all efforts and hard work from Peter and Terra Nova Consultancy Ltd. I sincerely wish your business getting better and better, and also wish that all your applicants’ dreams come true.

During the period of doing business in New Zealand, I have tried to apply for a NZ Residence for a few times assisted by many Immigration Agents, but I always was disappointed with the results they delivered to me. In 2011, because of you and your team’s effort, my residence visa application was finally approved by the Immigration New Zealand, and my family and I finally can be New Zealand Residents continually living and working in New Zealand, and enjoy our real family time in New Zealand. Peter, my family and I sincerely appreciate your hard work and effort, and also wish your business will be getting better and better. Many thanks again.

"Mr Peter and Miss Hu, we would like take this opportunity to express our deep thanks to Mr Peter and Miss Hu, you assisted my wife and daughter to successfully get their Resident Visa. Because of your professional knowledge to New Zealand Immigration Law and conscientious work attitude, we just can got this approval result. My wife was applying for a Resident Visa for totally four times in past four years time. We got many assistants and advises from may lawyers and immigration agents in first three application, but all those applications were declined and refused by the Immigration New Zealand. We were so disappointed to those immigration advisors and even to the INZ, but we still decided to do last try and contacted with Terra Nova Consultancy Ltd. We had a long discussion with you and knew how difficult on my wife’s application. You gave us some valuable professional advises and instructed us how to prepare necessary materials. Because of your continuous effort, my wife and daughter finally granted their Resident Visa,  they can stay in New Zealand enjoying real family life and start their new life in New Zealand. In the future, we are willing to tell our story to the people who are seeking the direction migrating to New Zealand. At meantime, all my family wish you have a great future in your work and life.

"Dear Peter, first of all, thank you so much for your efforts and professionalism to help me successfully get a Long Term Business Visa, my whole family and me are so happy to get this result. After signing the contract with you, I deeply felt and understood what is excellent service, effective work, and even what is experience and professionalism. I held a guardian visa for my daughter’s study in New Zealand, and after a period, my daughter and me more and more enjoyed New Zealand, so we decided to apply for a Long Term Business Visa for immigrating to New Zealand in the near future. After the decision was made, I contacted dozens of immigration advisers in Auckland area, and all of them advised me that I would need relevant business experiences in China for operating a relevant business in New Zealand. Disappointed we met you, Peter, and you provided me with a measured answer, and you gave confidence to me. You tailored a professional Business Plan for me describing my business experience, management and skills, and the BP was approved by Immigration New Zealand, even though my business/industry in China is different to the proposed business in New Zealand. Meanwhile, my husband spent more time in China on work, so we were separated from each other for a long time in the last 12 months. This fact resulted in the issue of partnership relationship for my LTBV application. However, you never give up and did your best to solve the problem, and my husband also successfully got a 3 year work visa under my approved LTBV application. Peter, you always have clear thinking and plentiful experience dealing with any issues. I just feel I am so lucky to meet and contract with you for my LTBV application. Finally, once again to express my deeply and faithful appreciation to you and your team. Thank you so much for all your efforts on my application, and I wish TNC getting better and better.

"Dear Peter, we are writing to say thank you for your great help and effort towards my wife’s visa & PR applications! My wife and I were engaged in early 2009 in China, and we lodged her visa application soon after I came back to NZ, however her application was quickly declined for reasons we couldn’t understand; because she was in NZ for 3 years studying, we met in a church with a lot of people are able to testify our true relationship true to Immigration and they did so. Few weeks later, one of my church friends told me about Peter and how he solved my friend’s PR problem which couldn’t be solved by his lawyer for 5 years! With Peter’s great immigration knowledge and enthusiasm, we were married here in our church by the end of the year; and she has got her PR now! Great thanks to Peter!

"Por la presente quiero agradecer sus servicios y ayuda en la obtencion de mi Visa de Negocios ya que ademas de haber demostrado un gran profesionalismo se involucro personalmente con mi caso y por consecuencia con mi familia, lo cual fue muy importante y volardo por nosotros, ya que es un proceso muy complicado y si uno no cuenta con la ayuda de la persona adecuada como lo es usted el proceso puede ser muy dificil. En nombre de mi familia y mio le agradezco enormenente todas sus gestiones para con nosotros. Le envio un fuerte abrazo y quedo a su desposicion, ya que no solo es un gran agente de inmigraciones si no que lo consideramos un gran amigo de la fimilia.

A rough translation of the above is as follow;

"I wish to thank you for your services and help in obtaining my business visa. You showed great professionalism personally with my case and with my family which was very important and valued by us, considering that it is a complicated process and if one does not have the help of someone such as yourself the process can be very difficult. I would like to thank you on behalf of my family and I for all that you have done for us. I am sending you a big hug and would like you to know that you are not only a great immigration consultant but we also consider you a great friend of our family.

"Hi Peter, I just want to thank you and your team for sorting out my visa requirements. As you know this was quite a task, and had it not been a recommendation from Tim and Marianne, customers of mine and yours, this would been very difficult for me to do, to say the least. I am so glad that their recommendation for me to contact you was taken up. It is a nice feeling, knowing that someone has had a good experience, and their story was the help I was looking for. Not only did you do all ( visa / renewal of work permit and my PR ) with total professionalism, but you did six months ahead of time. Needless to say I could not have done this without you and TNC. It has been a joy and pleasure to meet and deal with you and I would have absolutely no problems in recommending you to anyone requiring Immigration services and related matters. Once again from a very happy Kiwi. Many thanks and best regards

"We had already used Peter’s services to apply for a Long Term Business Visa in order to first come to New Zealand in 2008. He brought his long experience and firm relationships with Immigration New Zealand to bear to make our application as smooth as possible then, so it was quite natural to return to him for our residency application, even though we thought at the time that it was probably just a formality, given that we had exceeded our business plan and were creating real value for New Zealand. But we were wrong. For various reasons, the process became much longer than we had thought and we ran out of time. I still needed to travel away from New Zealand for business and return home to Waitakere, so visa extensions became necessary and other complications ensued. My wife also had to return to Ireland unexpectedly for family reasons. At all times, Peter kept us informed of progress, told us at each step what the issues were and what the solutions would have to be. He never hid anything from us, tried to use his relationships to speed things up, and was very honest about telling us of the outcomes. He was always available and responded to us within the hour, even during the holiday period. You only see this level of professionalism, when people are really passionate about what they do. Peter loves New Zealand. When our residency was granted, it was a victory for him as much as it was for us. He’s one of the first people we met here and he is undoubtedly one of the best ambassadors the country would wish for. Thanks again, Peter.

"Dear Peter, both Gillian and I would like thank you for the gift and take this opportunity to express our appreciation to both you and your staff for all the hard work and diligence you have taken in processing my immigration application. Looking back, arriving in a new country, on the other side of the world, leaving many friends/family behind, having to find work and the idea of having to endure a lengthy complicated immigration process was a somewhat daunting thought to say the least. However I can say with all confidence that choosing Terra Nova Consultancy to handle my immigration application was fundamental in making the transition simple and enjoyable. From start to finish the level of service and attention to detail has been flawless. Being dealt with on a professional but still individual level by someone that took a personal interest not only in handling the application but offering the back up and support to answer the numerous questions certainly put our minds at ease. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone I come across in the future and wish you and your staff all the very best for the future."

"Thanks very much! Your professional advice and kindest support helped us to pass through the most difficult period of time in our life. I and my girlfriend submitted our residence application in late 2008, until present, we spent almost two years to get final approval. During this period of time, we even thought about quite, abondoned our dream in New Zealand and go back where we from. I went to your office seeking for help after I received letter from INZ in March 2010 regarding to provide additional information. At that time, we had already made decision that this is final try, because we had spent too much time on it. Since you took over our case, we did not think and worried about our case as often as before, sometime we even forgot we were applying PR. Every time I sent you email inquire progress, you always provide me accurate information and feedback form my case officer. Sometimes it took a few days to get your reply, but we understood you were waiting for reply from our CO. Until a month ago, you had informed me my case had been passed to our CO's manager to review. And last week, we received AIP letter from INZ. At the moment of I saw "AIP" in this letter, I was very excited (no words can describe the feeling). Later on, we thought we shouldhave asked you to handle our case earlier, so this letter may arrive to our hand earlier. All in all, I am very impressed about your way of dealing with clients. Honest, creditability, well preparation .... all these things prove you are trustworthy immigration consultant. Once again, thanks very much Peter. We are heading for a new chapter."

"When I started working at my company (name withheld), I became concerned about my future for residence reasons and expectations from my family. Then through recommendations from my colleagues and employer, I went to Mr Peter Hendrikx at Terra Nova Consultancy for his help in application for PR. With his profession in immigration services, I received the approval very soon after the application. EOI application sent out in November 2009, reply from Immigration in early 2010, and I got the Approval in Principle letter this August. My family and I are very excited, and would like to thank Peter and his team for their great effort, and recommend Terra Nova Consultancy to anybody for their service."

"We arrived in New Zealand in October 2006 not knowing anybody or anything with regard to immigration process. We were put in contact with Peter Hendrikx of Terra Nova Consultancy by our bank manager at National Bank. Peter explained to us what our options were and what would be the best route to take. We supplied Peter with the information that he requested from us and Peter did the rest. During our dealings with Peter he was very professional, helpful and understanding to our needs. As you can see from the letter head, peter's application on our behalf for a long term business visa was successful and we now own our own business in New Zealand. After owning our business for 2 years we were allowed to apply for residency, so again we turned to Peter. He told us what information he would need to send our application to immigration and again we supplied him with this and he did the rest and on 29th October 2009 we received confirmation that our application had been successful. With regards to Peter Hendrikx and Terra Nova Consultancy, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any body requiring help with applying for immigration as they seem to make the whole process easy and painless. Thanks again Peter for everything".

"This letter is to thank my consultant Mr Peter at Terra Nova Consutlancy for getting things done very easily and quickly without any hassle. About a year ago, I had gone to Mr Peter for my in-laws applications. When we talked to him, we were very happy with the consulting fee and his explanations. Within a few months, we received a letter saying that our application was in consideration and will take upto 2 years which we were satisfied with. Shortly after, my in-laws application for visa/permit to come to New Zealand had been accepted. I was delighted with his excellent level of communication and professionalism with his customers and reasonable fees. To me, Mr Peter is a very helpful person and I would recommend his services to any future clients."

"Dear Peter. My family and I would like to thank you for your assistance with getting PR visa for our son Andrey.  We visited a lot of immigration consultants, but only you advised him to apply for his PR visa as a dependent child in his age of 24. We could not believe when in three month time he become permanent resident of New Zealand.  Your knowledge and understanding of immigration law helped us a lot. Thank you very much."

Family Donets, PR Family Dependent Child policy

"When my family noticed our PR appel was successful, we were overwhelmed with joy as we could now stay in New Zealand happily ever after. Our PR application was declined previously; Peter assessed the possibilities of winning the appel and encouraging our hopes of doing so. He has stood by me and my family and guided us as we steer through the minefield of a seemingly tough appeal process. Only within a couple of months, our residency permit was granted. The result of my application is evidence of Peter’s impeccable attention to detail and comprehensive knowledge of the immigration legislation and procedures. Thanks to Terra Nova Consultancy, and the professional way in which Peter handled my PR appeal case. We cannot thank enough for the guidance that Peter has imparted. Getting the PR Visa without his help seems un-thinkable. We wish Terra Nova all the best and success for now and in the near future."

"Dear Peter, we would like to thank you for your service in handling our immigration into New Zealand. At least for us, our case was not an easy one. It was somewhat complex to begin with. In addition, the amount of time and finances we had invested for our immigration plcaed additional stress factors on us. Anyway, with out your assistance and services, we would have surely been overwhelmed by the complexity of having to deal with the New Zealand Immigration Service. Since we first contacted you via email from Bangkok, Thailand; we were impressed with your professionalism and focus with our isssues in regards to immigrating to New Zealand. We has made several contacts to other Immigration Consultants and Attorneys both in Thailand and New Zealand and none were able to provide us with proper direction. Though at this time, we had not retained your services, you took the time to give us direction and information needed to prepare us for the immigration process. It is during that time period, that we made the decsion to seek your services once we arrived into New Zealand. After retaining your services, we were relieved that someone competent was representing us, and confident that you would successfully handle our case. having you represent us, gave a positive out look that our case would be handled properly and with a favourable outcome. We feel strongly that because of your professionalism, knowledge of NZ immigration, and true concern to our case, that our immigration has been a success. We sincerely, have no negative comments to make about your services. Pachariya and I would like to thank you, and wish you all the best."

"There is no word around to look for and express our feelings for Mr Peter Hendrikx and his team. My family and I would have never ended up coming to New Zealand and starting a successfull buisness only if Terra Nova Consultancy was not there for our guidance. I came across knowing Mr Peter Hendrikx through our friend. When we first applied for our LTBV through him. Our first application was unsuccessful but we managed to withdraw our application. Our friend arranged my meeting with Mr Peter in Wellington. Mr Peter's professional immigration experience amazed me. He was very quick at understanding our case. Peter re-worked on our case and I was able to get LTBV to New Zealand. Landing to New Zealand, our first visit was to Terra Nova Consultancy. To our surprise, as we entered his office, he was on the telephone attending other clients but he recognised us and he was waving at us. He called our daughters names, was another big surprise for us. From day one Mr Peter guided us in running our business and our stay in New Zealand, until the right time came for us to apply for the permanent residence. He was there for us again. We were very much organised working with him and did not give the New Zealand Immigration department any loopholes. Through Peter's professionalism, our PR was approved only in 70 days. What a great job. His kind, friendly and professional approach never gives his clients a second thought. Hendrikx name itself speaks up with his sword and his shield for his achievements. My family and I stand bold and salute Terra Nova Consultancy and let alone Peter Hendrikx himself. A great job!!! Well done!!! A big thank you, vinaka vakalevu. Lots of love, Liaqat, Ashia, Faiza and Zika."

"After 6 months, we successfully got our Permanent Residence on 2 September 2008. Here we would like to pass our warmest thanks to Mr Peter Hendrikx. Peter can provide more professional service than lots of other agencies. I entrusted my PR application to a Chinese agent in 2007. Before we paid their service fee, they showed us their enthusiasm and earnest attitude onto our case. However, everything changed after they got the first part service fee. They just left our case to INZ passively and never care about the process of our application even I kept chasing them. After 6 months, I decided to withdraw their service and changed to Peter who was introduced by my friend as he got lots of successful cases. Peter well and fully understands the immigration policy and help me prepared all documents to meet the requirement of INZ. Also, he kept chasing the case officer and follow up my application. For all my enquiry and questions, peter gave me detailed explanation and answers quickly and in time. As the client of Peter, I feel really confident and full of hopes. Peter makes me the first person to get PR with job from the case officer. My case officer is famous for his slow action. I went to the online forum and chatting with people who have the same case officer as me. Most of them have already been waiting for more than 10 months since their application receive by INZ. They tried to send email and ring case officer, but there is no feedback from case officer. Lucky me, with professional skills and responsible attitude, Peter kept chasing my application and kept pushing the case officer. I successfully got my PR during 6 months. Once again, I really appreciate Peter's hard work and earnest attitude. With his help, we can smoothly get our permanent residence and achievement one milestone of our life in New Zealand."

The case was a complicated one and the process was lengthy and at times discouraging, however, you remained confident for which we are thankful. Without your help we would have become totally bewildered but with your expertise we were able to sit back and let you do what you are best at. You have enabled our family to stay together and for that we are immensely grateful. I trust our relationship will continue in friendship and look forward to seeing you soon."

"Dear Peter. This is really a late letter to thank you for all your help during the whole processing of our Permanent Residents Application. After granting the Permanent Residents in New Zealand, we were really busy preparing our own business to make our life better. The first time we went to see you was in 2003, and after that we visited nearly all the kiwi agent and Chinese agents. It is an very important thing for us to get the permanent residents, and also we believe we have some difficulty to meet the requirement of permanent resident, so we selected our agent very carefully. After about three years, in June 2007, we decided to visit you again to ask your help with our application. Waiting is a really tough thing to face. Thanks again for all your work on preparing our application documents. As we remember, we submitted the application at the end of July 2007. After that we called you nearly every week asking the status. You are so kind to tell us that be patient and trust you, you have your own way to communicate with immigration officer at the correct time. We apologise for that now. We've never thought we could get the permanent resident at the very beginning of January 2008. It only took about more than 4 months under your effort. We've seen lots of examples that agents cheated Chinese students. We only can say at the moment, is that you are the agent who really wants to help us, and trust worth. Finally, thanks for all your professional and kindly help, and I strongly recommend you to any person who wants to apply for the permanent resident. I firmly believe that your professional knowledge and experience will really help them to be successful. Thanks again, and hope all the best in your career and life. Yours sincerely,"

I felt it wouldn't be right not to drop you a line and tell you how satisfied we were with the work you did. Peter is an excellent immigration consultant because in addition to being extremely professional, he is very knowledgeable about the immigration policy and area. We found his positive attitude and professionalism refreshing and a pleasure with which to work. This leading us to achieve the goal that we want earlier. All we can say is WOW!

I strongly recommend the Terra Nova Consultancy of Peter to anybody for their immigration issues. ”

Miki, Residence, Skilled Migrant Category

"Dear Peter, first of all many thanks to Peter for helping me to obtain New Zealand PR. Everything has gone through quite smoothly due to Peter’s professional and reliable jobs. My plain words cannot fully express my thanks. I applied New Zealand PR under family reunion category in China (Beijing Branch) in May 2007, I submitted all the documents required, 6 months later I received letter from Beijing Branch, indicating that I do not meet the minimum English requirements, and thus I was not suitable for the job that I was offered, and that NZIS is not satisfied with my employment, and they considered my employer could not financially sustain the employment. In that case I was almost rejected by New Zealand immigration. I was really depressed and could not find the way out, my English was not good enough to communicate with immigration officer directly, and most importantly I was not familiar with employment law and immigration policy. Fourtunately, a friend of mine recommended my Terra Nova Consultancy, Peter is truly a master in working through this immigration process, especially in handling tricky situation. He assessed my case in every detail He was very responsive in answering questions and issues I had and I did not experience any seconds delayed by them. Peter wrote to the immigration and explained queries they raised according to immigration policy and related laws. Good news came not long after, my case was reconsidered and got approved in February, 2008. I would never get this result without the help from Peter, he was really hard working and invested a lot of effort in. From my experiences, I learned to know that the choice of the right attorney is more important than anything else in immigration and visa matters. And I am more than happy about my final choice now. Once again I thank Peter and his staff and their excellent works!!! "

I remember in the appreciative letter my wife Dan (well she is my wife now) gave to you last time said we were waiting for your good news for my residence. Now you did give us a good news. You are amazing person and never give up! We knew the application had lots of difficulties because I need to spend more time in China during the process due to some special reasons. We knew it was hard when the applicant were not in New Zealand. However the result proved your hard work and your professional ability. Dan and I can start our happy life in New Zealand now. Thank you very much again! Wish you all the best! We believe that your professional ability will help more people achieve their goal in the future. Kind regards, Bao"

"We met in July 2007 and the plans were afoot for me to emigrate to New Zealand. I really believed that with positive thinking this could happen but I needed someone to guide me to get to this goal. Peter, you were the one and here I am sitting in New Zealand with my LTBV which was approved within five weeks and in normal circumstances can take up to four months. The depth, knowledge and time you spent preparing my business plan and motivation was truly incredible. I am also extremey impressed by your constant telephonic contact ensuring that all is well, not only with the business but your honest concern about my family's well being. There are simply not enough words to thank you for all your help and assistance in ensuring I reach my goal. I have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective clients and look forward to your endless knowledge when I need help!!

Robin, Michelle and children, Long Term Business Visa


We met Peter during a reconnaissance visit to Auckland at a time when we needed clear guidance about our plans to move ourselves and our business to New Zealand. He gave us no wild promises or pies in the sky, just reliable information and an honest assessment of our chances based on years of experience of helping would-be immigrants. Like in many cultures, it seems that relationship networks are important in New Zealand to get things done. Peter clearly has those relationships and the contacts needed to follow up your application, explain your own individual difficulties and requirements and defend your position with the authorities. When you are coming in from the outside, this is clearly not easy to achieve alone. In fact as soon as you meet Peter, he is obviously a relationship guy: he offers you a warm personal welcome, (serves excellent coffee!) and genuinely wants to know about you and your family. And his interest continues right through the process: he was obviously delighted to announce that our application had been accepted and he addressed the great news to every member of our family. The Long Term Business Visa application requires a pile of thorough, detailed information organised in a very specific way. We were amazed how already after our first meeting, Peter had understood so much of our own story. His first draft of our business plan showed how closely he had been listening to us! Together, using an easy back and forth process, he gently pushed us through to reach a final version on a timescale we would never have managed to hold to, had we been trying to do it alone. We were very occupied running our own business in France and were aiming to immigrate with quite a strict deadline (so our kids could start school at the beginning of the new school year). We needed the fastest possible, right-first-time solution and Peter knew exactly how to find it for us. Thanks, Peter, from us all."

"My name is Deqing. I am writing this letter in order to express my acknowledgment for your great help on my Entrepreneur and PR application. Peter is reliable, efficient and has abundant knowledge about immigration law and experience of case application. I tried to renew my Entrepreneur visa in the middle of last year, however for some reason it has been declined. My case became very tough. I've found some lawyers and agents to help me with my PR application. But none of them can solve it. Fortunately, I met Peter who led my case to the right track. I successfully obtained entrepreneur visa and PR. Peter is professional and reliable. He and his staff always work hard for my case, and never bored of my questions all the time, they really do good job. With their help, my PR application was even approved within few months. And my children could start school at the beginning of the new term. It's a miracle. Such thing would not happen if I had another agent. Peter is the best agent in entrepreneur and PR application case I have ever seen. THANK YOU SO MUCH, PETER!!"

"Dear Peter, Thank you very much for help me granted PR successfully, which removed my nightmares for many years. This enables me confidently striving for future on the land of New Zealand. I speak on behalf of my whole family; we would like to pay our deepest gratitude to you once again. Due to my personal issues, my work visa has been rejected by immigration office for many times. At that time I was very depressed and feeling hopeless. Lucky my friend recommended Terra Nova Consultancy to me, from there I knew Peter . Peter is very professional, friendly and patience. During many years negotiation with immigration office, Peter has always been maintaining his professionalism and never gives up attitude. To find a good immigration company is extremely difficult especially the one you can fully trust. In here I strongly recommend Terra Nova Consultancy, if you are facing any kind of immigration issues, you must come to see Peter. Do not miss this precious opportunity to visit Peter who definitely can bring you success."


Leon, Nancy and children, Permanent Residence Family Partner

"We arrived in New Zealand in October 2006 not knowing anybody or anything with regard to the immigration process. We were put in contact with Peter Hendrikx of Terra Nova Consultancy by our bank manager at National Bank. Peter explained to us what our options were and what would be the best route to take. We supplied Peter with the information that he requested from us and Peter did the rest. During our dealings with Peter he was very professional, helpful and understanding of our needs. As you can see from the letter head, Peter's application on our behalf was succesful and we now own our own business in New Zealand. With regard to Peter Hendrikx and Terra Nova Consultancy, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any body requiring help with applying for immigration. Thanks again Peter for everything."

"Dear Peter. First of all, thank you very much for your help in my residence application. I knew how hard my case was but you gave me a hope and achieved the goal successfully. It was amazing to me. It was a long story: I found an agent to help my resdience application at the end of 2004, however due to some reasons my application lasted nearly two years and I received decline letter as a result. You cannot understand how sad I was. I have been New Zealand for seven years, but I would go back to my country straight way. I didn't have any hope until I met you, Peter. Your professionalism, patient and confidence were impressed me so deep. I felt you could help me. From you took over my case till I got my residence, it only took one month. I can't even believe it but it is true. The result proved my feeling and also your hard work. Once again thank you very much for your previous effort and we are looking forward to get your good news on the partnership application from Bob. I want to wish you all the best and continue success for all other cases. Kind regards."

"In the early 2005, I asked one of agent to extend my work permit, due to some reasons, it didn't go succesful therfore both my work permit and visa became expired. I was very scared and very worried. I have been here many years now have to go back to my country straight away, I simply just can't take it. I almost came to dead end, lucky my friend introduce Peter Hendrikx to me. He very patient and carefully listen my situation, helping me to prepare all the documents also wrote a explain letter to the Minister. No very long later, I succesfully granted 2 years work permit on 11/09/2006. Me and all my family thanks Peter wholeheartedly, he is very repsonsible person and has righteous character. He helped my family to over come the most difficult situation. If you have any similar circumstance, please give Peter a call, I believe you can soon hear the good news".

"Dear Peter, we want to thank you very much for all your hard work and effort invested in getting my permanent residency here in New Zealand.When we first looked for an immigration agency, it was a bit of a scary process for us. Not only we were concerned about the cost, we were also concerned whether someone was trust worthy and reliable enough to handle our case. However, when we met and had personal interaction with you, we knew we didn't need to worry. You had always made us felt comfortable and assured of whatever steps that was needed to be taken. I personally, was impressed with how you handled our case. You always were on top of things and made sure that we were informed immediately of any additional information requested by the immigration, as well as getting the answers for us when we needed them. Your professionalism is oustanding! t has been a long year, but with your help and determination I am now a permanent resident in less time than expected. Your service is highly recommendable and also affordable! I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Mark and I are very happy and are thankful for all you've done for us. We are getting excited and happy for the arrival of our little one next month, thanks to you for speeding the process up we won't have to pay any expenses!! We want to wish you all the best and continue success for the coming year! We would be happy to offer any reference if you like. Thank You once again."
