I am so grateful for the amazing support and professionalism from Helen at NZ Visa Connections. She broke everything in our residency application down into easy, manageable steps, and communicated clearly throughout the application. I wish that I had chosen to use NZ Visa connections the first time I applied as it would have saved me the time, money, and stress of being declined due to a technicality in the fine print. Helen confidently navigates the minefield that is NZ Immigration and even helped us through as time was running out for me to stay with my family. Words cannot express my thanks for all your help and support!


It was a great experience to work with NZ Visa Connections, They have excellent and experienced staff who guided us to our Goal. They especially maintain good and fast communication which helps to move accurately and fastly. Also, they update the status regularly.

We wish them the best of luck and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a visa consultant in New Zealand.

I contacted Helen over LinkedIn with support around relocating to New Zealand from the UK, and the options of visas I had the ability to apply for. The support from Helen was great with detailed responses in a very quick time! Now successfully obtained a visa, when the time comes for support in regards to extending the visa, I will definitely be in touch with Helen again.

From the start of my visa query about my application for an Essential Skills visa, she answered every question I had, worked fast and efficiently, and gave me several ways to proceed in order to get the right outcome.

I cannot say enough in praise of the truly excellent service I have received from Helen Strange for my visitor visa. Mine was a complicated application. Helen was really efficient at collecting all the evidence but was, also, always on hand to give advice. Her written submission which accompanied the application was brilliant. Needless to say I was granted my visa under the exemption to instructions clause. I will definitely be using her services to apply for my residency when the parent category is reopened.

  • "Overall, my experience with NZ Visa Connections has been very pleasant and enjoyable. They provided me with the peace of mind and confidence that everything will be sorted, and that my visa application was in very good hands. The team was very efficient, organized, and “on-the-ball” on all immigration policies and requirements. The weekly video chats to check on the progress of my “paper trail” was very helpful. It was a very professional engagement with a personal touch. "

    Jessica Misa Baird, Work Visa Support

  • "My experience has truly been nothing short of easy and amazing. NZ Visa Connections has been thorough since the inception of our relationship. Understanding the ins and outs of the process has been overwhelming and not always easy to follow. But, they've been transparent, calming and honest during an otherwise difficult to navigate process. The team goes above and beyond and it's very evident they are passionate about the work that they do."

    Ashley Bent, Work Visa Support

  • "Outstanding work from NZ Visa Connections in regards to helping our company secure visas for two of our key staff members. These two wonderful ladies have gone above and beyond for our company. Rebecca was the case manager for two of our staff members and  she worked exceptionally hard to renew their visas on the 11th hour. I was so impressed with her amazing ability to make things happen with such a positive outcome. "

  • "I was very nervous about trying to employ an international applicant, but NZ Visa Connections helped me employ the perfect person for our team, even making suggestions so we could apply for a 3-year Visa straight away. They assisted and supported me every step of the way, from helping with the advertisement to preparing Visa application documents, through to procuring the visa’s required for our employee. They were knowledgeable and eminently capable, and I would have no hesitation referring them to any other business thinking about hiring internationally."

    Lisa Coleman, Employer / Business services

  • "NZ Visa Connections basically took the stress out of my work and residence visa applications. I honestly feel so lucky to have found them in the first place --through my sister's colleague's recommendation. They were as amazing to work with as what we heard about them. The whole process was already quite streamlined for us (my partner and I). We simply had to follow through a well-defined checklist with details like: the importance of a specific document, suggestions and prompts for letters and other write up. It was very clear to us that they are the expert we needed."
