Our History

We came from different parts of the world dreaming of New Zealand. We worked here, we became residents, we settled in Aotearoa, and then we became citizens. Then we understood it was time to give something back to others, to help them realize their migration dreams.

Our story is that one of the many working migrants who fight for their dream life every day. We worked hard, we studied even harder, and we decided to help others. We understand how many factors are at stake when it comes to immigration issues. We want to reduce unnecessary stress and uncertainty. We want to put our expertise at your service to help you avoid mistakes and reduce risks in your application(s).

We are part of the immigrant community and the Kiwi community. We’ve made friends, we’ve started families. We would like to help you to follow the path you have chosen. We want to be part of that journey.

To increase your chances of success and decrease your chances of faliure, then you really should be using a licensed adviser. Using an adviser can make the difference between success and failure for an application. It is not compulsory to use an immigration adviser, but a qualified and licensed immigration adviser is a professional who can help you with things that are very difficult to do yourself properly and to the full extent possible. Licensed and qualified advisers are knowledgeable about New Zealand immigration law, and so are able to find a way to help you if one exists. Evgen native English speakers have lots of problems with NZ immigration law, but if you are not a native speaker we can advocate for you in proper English. using language correctly, politely and skilfully makes a very big difference to how your Immigration officer understands your situation.

In general, no. This is illegal and carries a potential fine of up to $100,000 or up to 7 years in jail. Employers can do clerical work if you ask them to, but clerical work is defined as very basic things, filling in the form kind of level. There is a definition of this here. The level of work that is allowable is about the same or less than what you can do yourself. if your employer insists on doing your application, you should let them know that it is illegal as it could cause big problems for you as well if your employer is convicted of such an offense. 

The basic difference is that LIAs are entirely focussed on NZ immigration law and are regulated by the Immigration Advisers Authority. and that lawyers are able to practice a much wider variety of law and are regulated by the NZ Law Society. LIAs only do immigration work and work related to immigration so there is a high level of focussed experience and expertise on immigration. Many lawyers refuse to do immigration work even though they are allowed to do it because it is complex and changeable. So while a registered lawyer is allowed to do immigartion work they are not always the best choice.

If you don’t know where to start, e-mail us with a detailed description about your problem or question, and we will guide you. It doesn’t cost anything to ask, and we are happy to help you. If there will be a cost, we will tell you before starting the work.

I met them when my partner had an issue with a visa, and they were so much more than just only her advisors. They support her from the beggining, and knew exactly what to do, efficiently and with and incredible compromise. They also were our support along the whole process, so important for us at this moment. We are really happy to know them, after that complicated visa (wich of course they sorted out) we always contact them for every single Inmigration question or doubts. I highly recommend them. After us, all our friends started to contact them for differents questions or visa issues (partners, student visa, work visas, residencies, ect) and all of them were successful. "Do not hesitate to contact them, do not waste your time and money with another people...if you have a problem with inmigration, or any aother inquiery related....Koen&Sosa ("Now Visa Advisers") is your answer."
