Jagjit Singh came to New Zealand in April 2019 on a Partnership Based Work Visa. Jagjit’s wife was at that time on a Student Visa pursuing a course in IT. On arriving in New Zealand, Jagjit started looking for a suitable job for himself and shortly afterward managed to get one.
Jagjitsoon opted to apply for a subsequent work visa as his open work visa based on partnership was nearing its expiry date. He wanted to apply for an Essential Skills Work Visa and decided to engage the services of a Licensed Immigration Adviser (LIA) as he knew it was a complex process. He checked online and found Immigration Advisers NZ Ltd. Jagjit was immensely impressed with the reviews on both Facebook and Google. He realised that Immigration Advisers NZ Ltd. had the most reviews of all the Licensed Advisers in New Zealand.
Jagjit called and scheduled a meeting with a Himanshu Rai. Jagjit was very anxious as he knew there were several immigration instructions related obstacles for him to overcome after all the horror stories he had heard from friends & the media. However, as a wise and experienced LIA, Himanshu managed to clear all of Jagjit’s doubts and put him at ease.
Jagjitbecame quite confident after his interaction with Himanshu and felt that his future in New Zealand was in good hands. He also informed his employer regarding his meeting with LIA. After that, the employer also decided to meet Himanshu. He wanted to recruit more than one person and had already selected three based on the CV’s he had received in response to the job advertisement. Another concern of the employer was that this was a start-up company, established only a few months ago. He was uncertain about how Immigration New Zealand (INZ) would process & decide the applications as there was an issue of employer sustainability.
Himanshu explained to both Jagjit and the employer what documents they had to provide to make a strong case. Based on Jagjit’s recommendation, the other two selected employees also decided to enlist the services of Immigration Advisers NZ Ltd. Himanshu and his team of LIA’s successfully anticipated all possible concerns that could be raised by INZ and alleviated them by making a solid case by providing the necessary evidence and explanation along with the applications. As a result, to Jagjit’s amazement, his Essential Skills Work Visa (ESWV) application was approved within three weeks of lodgement. Not only Jagjit, but the other two applicants also had successful outcomes thanks to Himanshu’s and his Team’s expertise and hard work. Also, the employer was extremely impressed with Himanshu and was glad to have enlisted Immigration Advisers NZ Ltd, and have now decided to take their help with his other employee’s visa applications too.
