Experienced businessmen interested in being self-employed in their own business in New Zealand, may choose to apply for an Entrepreneur Work Visa.
Most people start out on an Entrepreneur Work Visa, which allows you to move to New Zealand and buy or establish a business. After either six months or two years, you can then apply for residence under the Entrepreneur Residence Category.
- A minimum monetary investment of NZ$100,000 (which excludes working capital)
- A clear, concise business plan
- A clean record (in terms of fraud, bankruptcy, business liquidation etc.)
- A clean bill of health
- To meet the minimum English language fluency requirements
- 120 points or more on the Entrepreneur Work Visa points scale.
How it works
- If you are granted your Entrepreneur Visa, you will have twelve months to start-up / buy and establish your business in New Zealand.
- After either six months or two years you can then apply for residence under the Entrepreneur Residence Category.

My husband, myself and our two teenage daughters have been Andrew’s clients for about 3 and a half years. 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.Fox Family (Mandy, Sean, Ashton & Sasha),
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.Wellington & Faith,
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 timeframes 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.Riaan,
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.M. Migos,
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.Avi Rabinowitz,
I just want to thank you and your team for all the help and support that you have given me. You are really wonderful people and I cant thank you enough for everything. I have this sad and good feeling. Scared that it might be declined but still trying to be hopeful and positive that they might appove it. You and your team is the best and i would and have recommended everyone that has asked me how i got here. It was with your help. RegardsJacques De Koker,
My family and I have been working closely with Andrew and Nesreen over the past year to get our New Zealand visas. They have been an amazing team to work with and their service is beyond compare. 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.Kirsty Lovell,
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.Leon & Cecille Coetzee,
Hi Leandi, Anastasia and Andrew, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything and for helping us successfully attain our visa's. You and your entire teams tireless efforts has not gone unnoticed, I already have given glowing references of The Network Team to interested parties who have inquired about how I went about applying and will continue to do so.Jonathon Damans,
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 rollercoaster 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.Colette Benjamin,
Good day Andrew and team Network Migration. Desire really I don’t know how to begin thanking you for all your guidance, words of encouragement and above all your positivism (is there such a word??). You kept us sane I think through the whole process. Oh and also a special thanks for lending an ear to chat to when we were stressed out. Desire was so excited to tell us that she called us before your official working hours, that shows how personally she was involved in our whole application!Rajesh and Cheryl-Ann,
We want to thank you and Network Migration wholeheartedly for helping us get our PR approved. Particularly the advice you gave us at the beginning on which visa to apply for as my husband did not have the formal qualifications. The subclass 119 which has resulted in us getting PR will make such a huge difference to our lives in Australia as we will be entitled to free medical care and childcare benefits and obviously can stay in Australia indefinitely. Thanks also for making sure our application was received in Perth on time after the confusion over me being told it was being handed in at Pretoria. This could have had a huge impact on our application. We appreciate the hard work that Sanjeev put in at the beginning with all my questions on how to fill out the application form. However, we do both feel a huge difference since Nesreen took over our application. She is unbelievably professional, always courteous and extremely proactive. Whenever there were questions coming in from Australia she was already finding the correct documentation and passing it on without any prompting from us. This was extremely refreshing and really helped us put all our faith into Nesreen. I also felt that she really cared and that we weren’t just a number. She is brilliant!…,
I just want to say thank you so much for everything you have done for us so far. Whether our visa’s come through or not now, you have been an enormous help! I am only truly feeling the stress of this process right now, and all of that stress is linked to our medicals, which is something neither you or I have any control over. But this is the first time I have felt stressed. Up to now, you have definitely made life a lot easier. Loren Holtzhausen…,
We heard about Network Migration Services through our friends who are now also living and working in New Zealand thanks to them. The immigration process can be a daunting and expensive move, so we decided to go with a reputable company to make the process easier on ourselves. Once we signed up, our Network Migration case officer was always on hand with our many questions and phone calls and nothing ever seemed like too much trouble for her. The most overwhelming part of the process, besides the obvious amount of paperwork and documentation, was when the medicals were referred to the New Zealand medical assessor. The waiting was very stressful but we knew that it was part of the visa application as our case officer did prepare us for the possibility. Our first tip to anyone considering migration to New Zealand would be to phone Network Migration Services!!!…,
Hello from Aus ….We have just become Citizens in March 2014, and I just had to somehow let you know, that you started this journey for us, by guiding us every second of the way and setting us on the right way. You know, there is so many migration agents out there, but none as warm and friendly, yet brutally honest (in a good way), that I have come across, as you my friend. You deserve all the accolades. I have steered many a prospective immigrant your way my dear mate, because I know, if nothing else, you would be able to truly inform and assist better than anyone I know….. ….True Wealth is living your dream, we couldn’t have done it without our Master Mind Group of which you guys were an integral part. To other prospective immigrants, there is life after Africa here, and the African Sunset is just as beautiful in Australia. Life is too short to ponder too much, just do it but do know it’s not heaven over here but pretty damn close…Adriaan Luus,
I thought I would drop you an email to thank you for your assistance in helping us with our Australian Visa applications. We are finally departing on the 4th of June 2014 to start our new adventure in Australia and are very grateful to the Network Migration Services team for making the process such a smooth one. Your time, knowledge and effort have helped us to change our life path and we know that there are wonderful opportunities awaiting us. All the best of success to the Network Migration Services team and the lives it will change moving forward!…,
Thanks very much!!! I really appreciate all your help on this! From that seminar you presented here in East London (which we attended) to now… our lives have changed so much and we’re not even out of the country yet…. It’s been an enriching (not monetary) experience for us… having to go through the accreditation, studies, travels to Australia etc. etc. etc… now for the hard work and the wish for the wish to come true…. Thanks very very much!!! An accolade for Anastasiya…. She’s been wonderfully helpful and patient with me…. For me she is a true asset to your business….…,
I would just like to express my thanks and gratitude for the professionalism and efficiency in which you helped me in obtaining my visa for Australia, as well as all the help and questions answered along the way. Your great service on such an important topic was well worth the investment. Many thanks, and best regards, Michael…,
We are so blessed as our EOI was selected and we even received our invitation yesterday, only 3 working days since the selection! I just wanted to make use of this opportunity to thank you especially, as we had more contact with you than anyone else at Network Migration.

“We heard about Network Migration through friends of ours who also made use of them to obtain a visa for Australia. We paid our fees in June 2011 and obtained our Skilled Migrant visas in August 2012 already (only 14 months later). During this time they always assisted us in a very professional and timeous way (always within 24 hours). They were very patient in answering all my questions (a lot of them!) and assisting me with my queries and concerns. I would like to thank Anna and Sanjeev especially for all their help to assist us in obtaining our visas in the most stress freeway. I can really recommend Network Migration to anyone wishing to immigrate to Australia!”…,
I have found Networkmigration to be very professional and well organised, as an immigration agency. They stay in constant contact with one, and answer queries that one may have, in a quick and efficient manner.They also stay abreast of changes that happen, and keep one informed thereof. I would highly recommend this agency for your move to New Zealand.Mario Franzoni,
