Why Choose Us
Though each consultancy service or visa application varies greatly depending on the nature and requirements of your unique situation, our expert immigration advisors have perfected the process over the past 20 years with a 97% success rate, thanks to our proven 7-Step Method.
Before getting started on your visa application, you will meet with one of our experienced immigration advisors for an initial consultation and tell us about your plans, goals, and current circumstances. This initial chat can take place in person, by phone, or via online video call, and helps us gather all the necessary information for us to recommend your most optimal visa type.
During this step, you are welcome to ask us questions and share any concerns you may have in regard to your visa application process.
Should you wish to enlist ICL’s services following our initial consultation, you will sign an official service agreement that contains a full description of the services that are to be provided by your immigration advisor, tailored to your individual needs.
At ICL, we believe in total transparency, ensuring you have nothing to worry about. We don’t charge by the hour and there are no additional or hidden fees.
Once the agreement is signed by ICL and yourself, we begin to prepare your visa application. During this stage, we will review the latest requirements for your visa type, fill out all the necessary forms, and collect any supporting documentation required for your application.
Every aspect of your visa application will be managed by one of our immigration experts on your behalf, which means you can carry on with your everyday life and focus on other tasks, without dealing with any unnecessary stress.
With every piece of information, form, and document required by the relevant government body compiled, we will send your visa application off for approval. Your immigration advisor will always ensure your application is submitted on time and that no component of your application has been overlooked.
Once your visa application has been submitted, you will be assigned a dedicated case officer by Immigration New Zealand. They are responsible for handling your application and any complications, and we work with them consistently to ensure your visa application is successful.
Potential complications include the relevant regulatory body requesting further supporting documentation, such as additional proof of your financial abilities or flight bookings. Don’t worry, your expert immigration advisor will keep you updated throughout the process and help overcome any complications that arise.
Though the timeframe for each case can vary, you will generally wait a few months before a decision is reached. This can take anywhere between 3 to 6 months, but can also be shorter or longer in certain situations. During this step, your friendly immigration advisor will continue to keep you in the loop and work with your government-assigned case officer to resolve any complications to ensure a positive outcome.
If your visa application is successful, you will receive a confirmation from Immigration New Zealand, allowing you to begin the exciting new chapter of your life!
In the rare case that your application is declined, we will work with you to find possible alternatives or help you submit an appeal. With over 20 years of experience, ICL has dealt with every possible situation and our immigration specialists are here to support you every step of the way.
