SMC Investor/Entrepreneur Visa Evaluation + Consultation via Licensed adviser

Want to invest in and secure a permanent residence in New Zealand?

Invest through New Zealand’s SMC Investor visa or Entrepreneur Visa



If you have an interest to start a business or invest in one and consequently secure a permanent residence, the Government of New Zealand has provided two visa options to this end.

Firstly, a visa for the capitalist, the Investor Visa will allow you to invest for a period of 3 or 4 years. Invest NZ$ 10m equity for 3 years or NZ$ 1.5m for 4 years in private or public firms to be eligible for permanent residence in New Zealand.

Secondly, a visa for the entrepreneur, the aptly named Entrepreneur Visa will allow you to purchase or invest in a business for 6 months or 2 years to work your way to a permanent residency. Invest NZ$ 500,000 to gain a permanent residence in 6 months or invest a minimum of NZ$ 100,000 (excluding working capital) in 2 years to secure a permanent residence.
