Helping you navigate the world of immigration

The landscape of immigration policy is ever-evolving. Whether you are a New Zealand employer of migrant workers, or a non-New Zealander looking to migrate to New Zealand, navigating immigration rules and policies can be a complicated and frustrating process. 

PwC Business Immigration Services

There is much more to immigration than securing visas. Immigration is also about identifying issues of importance to companies, families, business travellers and investors, including tax, employment law and payroll, and incorporating immigration requirements into a wider strategy to meet your goals.

Employers may wish to go it alone without the support of an experienced and licensed immigration adviser. However, you will need to keep up to date with immigration policies and requirements and know the legal limitations on assisting potential recruits. Our business immigration services team is comprised of experienced and licensed immigration advisers who are dedicated to supporting your talent strategy while managing business risk related to immigration regulatory requirements.


Why use PwC’s business immigration services?

We offer an end to end service that covers all the steps in the application process. We manage the expectations of your business and employees by delivering a timely and well managed service.


We provide experienced and practical immigration advice to support your People and HR team so they can focus on their core duties.



We can advise on all aspects of immigration matters, from work visas to Accredited employer applications as well as Ministerial submissions and waivers related to health and character issues. 


We keep you up to date on all relevant policy changes so you plan and manage risk effectively.
