Investor 1 Category

This visa is for you if you have NZ $10 million to invest in New Zealand over a 3-year period. At the end of the 3-year period, you can apply for New Zealand residence.

On being granted residence, you can come to New Zealand with your family. You can include your partner, and dependent children aged 24 and under, in your visa application. You will, however, need to show evidence that you have kept your funds invested at the end of the second and third years you are in New Zealand.

You must also spend 44 days in each of the last two years of your three-year investment period in New Zealand, or, 88 days at any time over the three-year investment period if you have invested a minimum of NZ$2.5 million in growth investments.

If you haven’t met all of the conditions of your visa at the end of the 3-year investment period, you may have to leave New Zealand.

Immigration New Zealand considers it OK to transfer funds between acceptable investments. If you already have funds invested in New Zealand when you apply for residence, your investment period can start from the time your application is approved in principle.
