What our clients think about us

“Working with Working in New Zealand has been an absolute game-changer for me and my family. From day one, they’ve had our backs, providing unparalleled support and guidance throughout the entire visa process. Despite the inevitable hurdles and challenges that cropped up along the way, Sophie, our advisor, remained steadfast and committed to helping us achieve our goals.

Thanks to Working In, my family and I can finally rejoice in the positive outcome we’ve been eagerly awaiting. We’re now able to reunite in New Zealand, with my husband; whose, work visa was seamlessly taken care of by Sophie as well.

I can’t recommend Work In highly enough. Their expertise, professionalism, and unwavering support have made what could have been a daunting process feel manageable.”

Rejieli Rainaliko

“I would very highly recommend Working In to anyone looking to move to New Zealand. From the very first email with Jane and all the way through they couldn’t have been kinder, more friendly and welcoming. For the first 8 months me and Robyn were in quite regular communication via email with regards to all aspects of the process. She was SO helpful and nice to me even when I was emailing her with tiny problems. Even with regards to obtaining my nursing registration she tried to help me in any way she could.

The process can be pretty stressful but Robyn was lovely to me and helped make the whole thing easier. She’s a truly lovely human and she’s fantastic at her job. Once I got to the visa part of the application, Monika and Gabriella were equally great to work with. They made the visa application process as smooth as possible, and we managed to get everything sorted within a few weeks. Working In is a fab company with some wonderful and patient people working for them! Wholly recommend to all.


Monika and Gabriella were a brilliant team to work with. Despite the complicated process, they guided us through smoothly and efficiently, keeping us informed at every stage. We are a family of five, and their help was invaluable at keeping things moving forward, when we were busy with other things. And now we have our residency only two months after arriving in New Zealand! Thank you so much guys!.”

Sophie Summerfield

“To be able to officially say, “We’re moving New Zealand” has been a dream of ours for so long! Thanks to Working In, it’s actually a reality. From the very first video call to the countless questions I had, we have felt incredibly supported. The team are professional, friendly and genuinely care about your family aspirations. Sending sincere thanks to Monika, Gabriella, Paul G and Paul A. WE DID IT !”

“From starting with a chat with Paul Goddard, to having our visa applications handled by Darrell Enright and Judy Kim, and all the helpful advice from Paul Arthur and having him communicate with all the relevant third parties such as banks, and property finder service etc, the team cannot do enough to help. Highly recommended!”

Elizabeth Gillespie

“Thanking each and every member in this group for their constant support. Special thanks to Aman Jaspal and Sameena Jaspal for providing constant information and details as far as immigration is concerned.”

Mandeep Kaur

“From day one of our consultation my Licensed Adviser Aaron Chen was very understanding and kind. He explained the process well and in simple way. He replied to all my emails immediately. Whenever I had some doubts he would call me and guide me. When I was stressed with visa process (my husband’s visa) he called me and comforted me and guided me to prepare all the documents. I take this opportunity to thank him.”

Working In has helped me realise my dream of moving back to NZ, the staff is professional (and very helpful), they have a network of companies they can recommend to help with the move and they help you every step of the way…through Facebook I found out about an info video session from Working In New Zealand and contacted them. From the get go, they were helpful and knowledgeable.”

“Moving to New Zealand had been a dream of mine ever since my first visit to the country, as a Lord of the Rings fan, on a student visa when I was 16 years old. I was drawn to the lifestyle and the people. Between 2009 and 2023 I have spent over 1500 days in this country. It wasn’t until a year ago that I felt ready to take the next step in calling New Zealand home. Being the complete opposite side of the world to my hometown — it took some time for me to realize what life could look like as a resident.

Starting the Immigration New Zealand process with Working In by my side felt like the right thing to do. First with getting my work visa approved (in 3 working days from lodging!!) and now with my residency in 6 weeks. It’s been a ride and a half. My immigration advisers, Monika and Gabriella (with the help of Candy and Paul), have been a dream team. Quick to respond and always happy to explain things time and time again if I was in doubt about documentation.

Thanks again for the assistance over the past year. Would highly recommend Working In to be your Licensed Immigration Advisers! Thanks team!”

Thomas Merkus

“Photo is me on my last non-resident adventure over the long weekend in October 2023, the weekend prior to my residence visa approval.”


“I don’t even know where to begin to thank Monika, Candy, Gabriella and Paul for their help with me obtaining my AEWV. It all started with a video call with Paul almost a year ago, and decided to sit on it for a while before I actually fully committed to Working In.

Being in NZ at the time of jumping on board the Working In boat heading towards my AEWV turned out to be the right decision. I kept travelling and exploring New Zealand whilst on the outlook for the right job for me. From finding that job to getting my AEWV approval mail.. it’s been a rollercoaster and a half in terms of waiting around for documents (to be translated) etc. I could not have done this without the help of Working In.”

“The most compassionate and professional help we have ever had in our lives!

Yury Alecrim Gomes Gaudard Tavares

“The team at Working In did a fantastic job at securing our visas under circumstances which would have made us give up if we hadn’t had Zinny and the team supporting us. Excellent customer service and effort on Working In‘s behalf over a couple of years. I know that we would 100% use them in the future if we wish to apply for new visas. If you have any complications or uncertainties, Working In will give you honest advice and support. Excellent service all round – thank you!

Laura Brittain

“My experience with Working In has been a pleasure, they work in a very professional manner which I found very reassuring straight away. They put all your worries to the side by explaining all the steps in bitesize pieces, making sure not to overload you with information. The team are always on hand to help guide you along the way. I would highly recommend Working In & would like to thank Darrell my adviser & everyone else who has helped along the way to make this possible.”

Working In has been an invaluable partner in our immigration journey, especially during these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the moment we engaged their services, they went above and beyond to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for my family and me to New Zealand, even before our actual arrival.

Petra, in particular, played an instrumental role throughout the entire process. Her expertise, dedication, and unwavering support were truly exceptional. She not only assisted us in obtaining the necessary special purpose visas but also provided invaluable guidance as we progressed towards our resident visas. Her attention to detail and thorough understanding of the immigration landscape ensured that we had a clear roadmap to follow, giving us confidence and peace of mind.

Despite the complexities and uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, Working In remained steadfast in their commitment to us. Their proactive approach and proactive communication kept us well-informed every step of the way. Even during these challenging times, they demonstrated a remarkable ability to adapt to changing circumstances and navigate the evolving immigration requirements seamlessly.

Working In‘s personalized service sets them apart from others. They took the time to understand our unique circumstances, needs, and aspirations. This personalized approach made us feel valued as clients and created a strong sense of trust and partnership.

I am immensely grateful for the outstanding service provided by Working In. Their support has been crucial in making our immigration journey a success.

“From the first meeting and all the way through, Working In was so helpful and positive, and keep us in the loop all the way through. Their professionalism and communication was a breath of fresh air. This was a big change from a previous advisory company I spoke to. Every step of the process I was extremely happy.”

Mark Webster

Working In was a real game changer for us. We have always been interested in moving the family to New Zealand and have spent a lot of time, on and off, looking into it. After doing MyVisaPath, and being taken through all of our options and told what we need to do, we are so excited. What was a dream for us before really now feels like an actual goal that we can work towards and make happen. It has really shifted our mindset and made us clear on what we’re dealing with.”

“I am extremely pleased with Working In and specifically with the management of my visa needs. A pleasure to work with. Very professional and knowledgeable. And got approval very quickly. Thank you!”

Marie Julie Bizet

“The main reason we chose our candidate when we were recruiting was because they were ready to make the move and were further down the journey – unlike other candidates who didn’t even know their eligibility. We are so happy with how quickly the visa work was processed. Working with a reputable Licensed Immigration Adviser and company like yours has made a huge difference to our hiring process. Thank you to all of you at Working In!”
