Helping UK residents emigrate for almost 30 years

The Emigration Group Ltd. in the UK was established in 1992 by Geoff Taylor, with the sole aim of helping people achieve a new life in New Zealand and Australia. After almost 30 years in business and helping over 18,000 people successfully emigrate, as a result of Covid 19, we were forced to close our UK office in Chester, in early 2021.

Later in the year, our NZ sister company, The Emigration Group NZ teamed up with another very experienced migration business, Working International Visas Ltd. (Working In), based in New Zealand, but with a satellite permanent UK office. Working In also have a large visa processing team in New Zealand and offer an effective and complete emigration service from start to finish to help you make a success of your migration.

A big part of the migration process involves finding a job. The job assistance service offered by The Emigration Group NZ’s director, Geoff Taylor continues to operate and is unaffected by the closure of the UK office. Geoff may be contacted at:
