Deciding to bring your child to a new country can be a challenging yet rewarding experience. Moving internationally, particularly to a place as beautiful and peaceful as New Zealand, offers the potential for an amazing family experience. In New Zealand, excellent educational infrastructure ensures your child will be able to have access to a quality schooling and parents can feel secure about their kid’s future.
This Indian couple approached us last year to help with their 2021 Resident Visa application. They also wanted to bring their only child to NZ so they could live together as a family while making sure the child had a bright future ahead. They decided to ask for professional advice as they did not want to risk being rejected due to their child’s medical issues.
During the online consultation, the couple discussed the situation of the family. Simon, our CEO, was eager to lend a helping hand and already had some ideas on how he could best assist the couple in their situation. He outlined various options that could be used to help their application. While each of these options had their own strengths and weaknesses, Simon ultimately suggested an action plan based on the needs of the family. The clients were thankful for the insight and assistance that Simon provided during the consultation.
Once their meeting was done, Simon sent them a letter of engagement which the client immediately signed. As soon as they paid the first instalment, Simon started working on their application.
Simon had a lot of work to do on the child's medical waiver. All of the available evidence related to the child's health had to be closely scrutinized and presented with accuracy in order to meet the Acceptable Standard of Health criteria. After several medical checks, and challenges with the assessor, Simon managed to secure an approval for the entire application - a challenging yet rewarding task has ended in positive results for the family.
It was a special moment when the family learned that they could now fulfill their dream of living together in New Zealand. As they shared their excitement, it was clear to see just how much this meant to them after months of hard work. Without the help of Simon, none of this would have been possible, and they knew it. Now they are ready to create new memories in NZ!
Note: The client and Simon never once met in person and conducted all communications through our advanced IT system. It was due to the restrictions on travelling and meetings because of Covid-19. However, when the restrictions got lifted, our firm decided to continue the no face to face meeting policy after we found out it was more practical and efficient.
