Opportunities for Investors in New Zealand
Along with the students and the 9 to 5 office folk, New Zealand is an amazing place for investors, businessmen and entrepreneurs as well. The diverse geography of New Zealand and it’s varied culture create a lot of interesting opportunities and makes for a lit, vibrant and dynamic place to both settle down, and to do business. Down below are some of the many strengths of the different regions of New Zealand.
New Zealand is a great place for the development of Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs are people who are either self-employed, or they have a hands-on role (management) in some business that they are the owners of (either completely or partly). If you are applying for a New Zealand Entrepreneur Working Visa, the Immigration of New Zealand looks for a combination of the following :
- Proven business skills
- A strong plan
- Accessible funds to finance it
The second category that you need to know about is the Migrant Investment Visa. If you are applying for a New Zealand Investor visa or the New Zealand Migrant investment Visa, you need to know that technically, for Immigration New Zealand, an ‘Investor’ is someone with enough funds available to put them into a wide range of investment vehicles – from startups (chosen from seminars generally), to bank-bonds and so on. The options are endless. However, ordinarily, the investors would not have to be involved in the management and/or governing their ‘investment vehicles’ in any way. Basically, there are two levels of investor:
- Investor Plus
The criteria, benefits and flexibility varies by some extent on both.
These are some things that one must know before applying for a work permit/investors Visa or a work Visa for New Zealand from Permits and Visas Reviews. The best thing to do is to get your research right and take the help of a professional consultant to help guide you in the best possible way.
