visa new zealand
Our immigration lawyers and other professionals of our Immigration team specialise in helping applicants for permanent or temporary residency to obtain residence in New Zealand. We have also established a proud reputation for resolving very difficult and challenging immigration cases, including many that other legal firms and immigration consultants were unable or unwilling to progress.

Our team is continually working on New Zealand residency applications under nearly every available category including skilled migrant, family, business and investment, and for every type of visa.

We are also regularly taking actions to resolve a variety of difficult immigration cases, ranging from appeals to the Residence Review Board and Removal Review Authority, to complaints to the Ombudsmen and seeking judicial reviews in the New Zealand High Court.

Our clients benefit from our track record and our breadth of experience in having acted in nearly every type of immigration case that has arisen in New Zealand, and from the right we as a law firm have of audience in Court; a right not available to immigration consultants. Supreme Court appearances to argue landmark immigration human rights claims are extremely rare in New Zealand, but our Amicus lawyers have done this successfully.
