Auckland Jewish Immigration
Destination New Zealand for intending Jewish Immigrants


Immigration New Zealand is a government organisation that looks after New Zealandís immigration rules and laws, which in turn support our economic growth and strengthen our relationship with other parts of the world.

They offer a range of visas to help those who can contribute to New Zealand to visit, work, study, live, or invest here.

Auckland Jewish Immigration provides free updated visa information, a Jewish approach to the immigration process and practical help. Note that we aren't immigration lawyers and do not offer legal advice.

Visa options

Check if you are eligible for a New Zealand visa. The results will show the visas you may be eligible for, but you need to apply to Immigration New Zealand for approval. There is NO guarantee your application will be approved. Start by choosing from the options below:

  • Visit New Zealand for a short period
  • Work
  • Study
  • Join or bring family
  • Start a business or invest in a business
  • Live permanently

Skills shortage list

Some skills are in chronically short supply, and Immigration New Zealand has lists of skill shortages.

If you are offered a job which appears on a skill shortage list and you have the qualifications and experience to match, getting a work and residence visa will be easier. This is because the Government has identified that employers need to recruit people from overseas to help meet demand for your skills.

But if your job is not on a shortage list, don't be disheartened. There are other work visa and resident visa options that might be right for you.

Employment - New Kiwis
