New Zealand Migration Services

The company was established in April 1993, 27 years ago in Cape Town as Forman Hendrikse Emigration Services, specializing in emigration to New Zealand and is one of the only companies focused completely on New Zealand.

Sharon Yerman, a founding member, is a Licensed Immigration Adviser and the Director of Operations. Sharon was the first person to be licensed on the African Continent. It is a New Zealand government requirement that immigration advisers be licensed by the Immigration Advisors Authority (www.iaa.govt.nz).

With a little over twenty-seven years’ experience in immigration to New Zealand and thousands of applications under her belt, Sharon is the ideal person to oversee the operations of the company. She is arguably one of the most knowledgeable licensed advisors in South Africa and her range of expertise is limitless from temporary, residence, investor and entrepreneur visa applications to major appeals when required, these appeals include in depth medical and character waiver issues.

The Company has a second immigration adviser – Sanjeev Singh. Sanjeev (Sanj) – a Licensed Immigration Adviser with 8 years’ experience in the immigration industry. In his time in immigration, he has already achieved a few accolades to be proud of, such as:

  • First graduate from the African continent to pass the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice (Level 7), of which he studied through the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
  • First offshore-based adviser from South Africa to be selected for the Immigration Advisors Authority’s (IAA) Reference Group for the 2014 year (during this year, he was the ONLY offshore-based Licensed Immigration Adviser selected from around the world to serve on the Reference Group)
  • Sanj also served on the IAA’s Steering Committee (as one of a handful of Advisers) advising on the new changes to the qualification that all potential immigration advisers must obtain. He was the only adviser on the Committee who is based outside of New Zealand.

In addition to his Graduate Certificate of New Zealand Immigration Advice, Sanj also holds both a B.A. Degree and an Honours Degree (Industrial Psychology) acquired through the University of South Africa. Sanj excels in customer service.

Director of Finance and Business Development is Ian Yerman. Having held managing directorships for over thirty-five years his experience ensures that the company remains innovative and continues to improve on the variety of services it offers regarding migration from South Africa to New Zealand.

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-seven years on that one destination.

The New Zealand government has announced further border restrictions in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.  These new measures are expected to help the health system to be more prepared in the coming months, by having fewer people infected and slow the spread of disease out over a longer period of time.  They are working at keeping the virus out through restrictions on people.

By enforcing certain restrictions, New Zealand supermarket shelves will remain well stocked and medicines and other essential supplies will still be available.

FROM SUNDAY 15th MARCH 2020 AT 23:59 ALL TRAVELLERS COMING FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD, EXCEPT PARTS OF THE PACIFIC, INCLUDING CHINA, IRAN AND SOUTH AFRICA, WILL BE EXPECTED TO SELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS ON ARRIVAL IN NEW ZEALAND

 

Immigration confirms that these announcements will likely have a big impact on our sector, but they will continue to work with us and provide us with regular updated immigration information.

 Severe disruptions are being experienced, but everyone is working as best they can under the circumstances.  The government has been planning for such disruption and will revert once they have a better idea of just what the impact might be for our sector, from an immigration perspective.

 Things are moving very rapidly at the moment, but we will be kept as informed as possible.

 I will update this notice as soon as more information becomes available, including any changes.
