You may have made a significant journey – many miles and many emotions – to be here in New Zealand. And you will have discovered much and taken part in life here as a student, visitor, worker or as part of our growing business community.
Now that you’re here, you will probably still have questions about visas or about changing your immigration status...
We have put together information on becoming a resident and permanent resident and we have compiled lists of questions and answers to help you understand how a change in your circumstances or plans may affect your visa.
Whether you are here as a student or visitor, or in New Zealand to work, invest or start a business, or whether you are already a New Zealand resident, you will need to have your questions answered.
Settling in to a new country is not always easy. The biggest challenge can be knowing where to find all the information that you automatically knew in your own country. That's where Settlement Support New Zealand can help. It provides easy access to information that you may need about the services that are available in your local area to support your settlement.
You may have some other questions – if you do need further help, please contact us.
Your feedback will help us improve our information and our processes.
