The Active Investor Plus Visa (AIPV) Program is an excellent option for those looking to live, work and invest in New Zealand. It allows experienced high-value investors from around the world to gain entry into New Zealand and make long-term investments here. Let’s take a closer look at what AIPV offers and how it can help you make the most of your investment.
The AIPV Program requires that applicants have experience in business or investment activities. Additionally, you must invest NZD 15 million or the weighted equivalent in acceptable investments in New Zealand. The investments could be in New Zealand businesses, government bonds, and residential property. Applicants must also demonstrate that they can sustain themselves financially during their stay in New Zealand without relying on social assistance or employment opportunities. If your visa application gets Approval in Principle (AIP), you will have six months to transfer and invest your funds in New Zealand.
The acceptable investment is determined at the time the investment is made and must continue to meet the requirements of an acceptable investment during the 48-month investment period.
The AIPV Program offers several benefits for those who qualify for it. First, successful applicants receive a three-year visa that allows them to live and work in New Zealand and travel freely throughout the country. They may also be eligible for permanent residency after five years of living and investing in New Zealand. Other incentives include access to discounted tax rates, low-interest loans from financial institutions, and more flexible immigration policies for family members. You can also include your partner and dependent children aged 24 and under in your visa application
What’s more, this program is designed to provide investors with an opportunity to live and work in New Zealand and encourage them to become involved in the local economy through their investments. This means that when investors decide to move on from their investments, they will leave behind something of value—a boost to the local economy that will benefit everyone involved.
For those looking to make long-term investments in New Zealand while enjoying all the benefits of living there without having to worry about immigration issues or finding employment opportunities, then the Active Investor Plus Visa Program is an excellent option worth considering. With its generous benefits and incentives tailored specifically towards high-value investors, this program provides an ideal way for skilled and experienced investors from around the world to gain entry into New Zealand and make positive contributions to its economy through their investments over time.
