INVESTOR VISA

Business and investor visas encourage people who can invest into New Zealand’s economy to live indefinitely in New Zealand. The program allows you to secure conditional resident visa, for you and your immediate family, which allow you to live, work and study anywhere in New Zealand. There are two categories of Investor Resident Visa in New Zealand, Investor 1 and Investor 2.

Investor 1 Category: General requirements

  • Invest at least NZ $10 million to New Zealand over a 3-year period
  • Funds must be earned or acquired lawfully
  • Funds must be invested in an acceptable investment
  • No English language requirements
  • Quota: Unlimited
  • No age limitation

Investor 2 Category: General requirements

  • Invest at least NZ$ 3 million to New Zealand over the 4-year period
  • Funds must be earned or acquired lawfully
  • Funds must be invested in an acceptable investment
  • Age range is up to 65 years old
  • Must have recognised business experience
  • Must satisfy minimum English requirements or alternatively having an English-speaking background
  • Quota: 400 per year

Whilst both entrepreneur or investor categories might sound like a position option, there are some of the advantages and limitations to both these visas, for examples these visas are conditional and only became indefinite if you maintain your eligibility over the required period. Further, the decline rate of these visas is also reasonably high as many times the business is not actually profitable as predicted or the applicant cannot prove that their available funds are legally acquired.

If you are considering these visa types, talk to our expert team, we will be able to help determine whether you are likely to be eligible.
