Andrew and the team at Network Migration are fantastic. They are extremely knowledgeable and honest and they find the best option for you based on your circumstances. They always get back to my emails no matter if I've asked the same question multiple times. After-Sales care is second to none. Even after making the move I can always rely on the team to answer any questions I have. They made my dream of moving abroad come true and I can't thank them enough. I highly recommend using Network Migration.

Andrew and his team is exceptional in their work, they carried and coached us throughout the whole process, preparing us for what is to come and how to handle the process. I can only thank Network Migration in the way they treated us. All our worries, questions and concerns were dealt with in our time frames and with the utmost respect. I will refer Network Migration to anyone who is serious about emigrating. We utilized their service through word of mouth after potentially losing the opportunity to emigrate due to utilizing another company who was all but professional. Andrew and his team saved the day in our hour of need with their professional support, guidance and help with communication.

If it wasn't for you two I was not going to get this visa. Too many things were complex and your guidance was invaluable. THANK YOU so so much! You served me with grace and I appreciate that about you. You took so much pressure from NZ but did not lose your professionalism one bit. Andrew, your experience and guidance got us through. There were many instances you used that experience to give me the wisdom to move forward when I had almost given up and needed a brother figure.

I want to say that there is so much stress, money spent and pressure to reach our goal, and that’s why we put our trust in the hands of Andrew and his team. Leandi was efficient and amazing to work with. We appreciated that they were "upfront" with us, dealing with all the paperwork, their quick email response times and phone calls when they knew we needed answers.

It wasn't until I started this process did I fully understand what I was getting myself into. Thank you Network Migration for your amazing support and efficiency in ensuring that I was up to speed each step of the way! I lived in a different city at the time and although our communication was purely online, I can proudly say that with your help, I was able to complete the process without any glitches and successfully obtained a visa within a very short space of time.

They maintain a high level of professionalism, keep you updated every step of the way and are always willing to help. I can't thank them enough for all the hard work they have put in to make our dream a reality.

Andrew and his team - and our managing case officer Steven Stols in particular - stuck the difficulties and challenges with which were presented during the whole process, out with us; and through it all, never once left us feeling unsure or as if anything was ever asking too much ... but instead confronted the relatable with us, until every last thing was sorted and finalized. My wife and I now proudly join the ranks of the literally thousands of other clients who have previously enlisted the services of Network Migration Services to successfully facilitate and manage the Emigration process on our behalf, and we are truly grateful for everything they had done for us, as people, and not just as clients with a file number.

Andrew and Lana, A year ago today we (finally) boarded our flight from Jhb to Christchurch to start our new lives in New Zealand. Migrating is a stressful and emotional rolercoaster process and ours was compounded by the additional complications we experienced. Throughout our tears and frustrations, you were always professional and courteous and most importantly YOU GOT THE JOB DONE! With our Residency visas in our passports we can now breathe a sigh of relief and say THANK YOU for all you did for us.
