Forman Hendrikse Emigration Services Becomes New Zealand Migration Services

In line with the change in the “Trading as” legislation in South Africa, we decided to change our company name and use one that clearly indicates our business focus.  The former name “Forman Hendrikse Emigration Services” did not do this.

The name “New Zealand Migration Services” does just that.  The company prides itself at being the most focused New Zealand migration company in South Africa by specializing for twenty-eight years on that one destination.
