Business Investment Visas Delivering Money to New Zealand
The New Zealand Immigration Minister, Jonathan Coleman, has announced that the country’s business migration initiative has attracted over $416m investment capital to the economy. ‘’We developed a policy package that makes New Zealand very attractive to business migrants,’’ Dr Coleman says. ‘’The scheme has been operating for 16 months and already it’s attracted two and half times the amount of potential investment capital compared to the previous Government’s policy.’’
Currently there has already been £102m invested into the New Zealand economy via the Business Migrant Policy and another £133m has been approved to be transferred. There are a number of other applications still being processed that are worth up to $181m.
Dr Coleman said that the Government’s initiative sought to make New Zealand more attractive to investors while keeping the integrity of the immigration system.
‘We’re committed to policies that attract investment and make it easier to do business in New Zealand, and these figures reflect that. We’re now looking at whether we can make these policies even more attractive to investors.’
The business immigration policy is not only attracting investors’ wealth but also their highly regarded business skills and networks. A large number of businessmen and women are seeing the opportunities currently present in the country and providing significant opportunities to the economy as well as an influx of capital.
The New Zealand business immigration visa programme is continually being improved and it seems that the increase of investor opportunity and interest is set to continue over the next few years.
