One of our most popular recruitment services is New Zealand immigration. Thousands of people immigrate to this dynamic and industrious country every year and that could include you. If you’re looking to work in the country, one of the most practical pathways to immigration is the New Zealand Silver Fern Visa. This visa was set up to provide young, skilled people with a New Zealand visa by offering them the opportunity live and work permanently in the country and, on occasion, the flexibility to immigrate even before they have secured an offer of employment.

Silver Fern Visa New Zealand

To be eligible for Silver Fern Immigration, an applicant must meet the requirements to be classed as a skilled migrant. To do this, they must be between 25 and 55 years old, be in good health, and be considered to be of good character. In addition, they must have good English before they put in your application.

If you fit the criteria, you can make an “Expression of Interest (EOI),” which is your initial application listing your skills, experience and other benefits you feel you would bring to the country. EOIs are assessed under a points system. Those with EOIs above 140 points are automatically accepted for an invitation to apply for the Silver Fern program. Those with EOIs of 100 or above are assessed individually for their desirability.

If you reach the next stage, you are invited to apply for your visa. Here you must prove all of your claims on your EOI form with medical and police certificates, proof of your English skills and documentation showing your qualifications and experience. The final stage of the process is an interview where you must prove that you have a strong desire to settle in the country permanently.

Silver Fern Job Search

Silver Fern Job Search is an initiative whereby those granted a Silver Fern visa can enter the country for up to nine months while they are searching for employment. To be eligible for this New Zealand Work Visa, applicants must be between 25 and 35 and show proof that they have enough funds to support themselves during the stay. The Job Search initiative is limited to just 300 places a year. For more information, or to apply, contact us by taking our free visa assessment.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
