We've safely arrived in New Zealand and even though we still can't quite believe that this is our new home, we love being here. Thanks to you and all your help and advice, our dream became a reality and we are deeply grateful to you for helping to make this happen.
To sum up the services of TEG and especially Sally Tomkinson: It was the best and most worthy service we ever received.
Throughout the whole application process, we never felt alone but fully integrated into a wonderful and professional team, we could ask questions of any kind (also not directly related to the visa, but about job opportunities, life in NZ, etc.) whenever they popped up and we got an answer within no more than a day. We could ask the same questions over and over again with always a very friendly and helpful answer. We were always informed about what is going on and why. Sally would let us know every time she received documents from us or INZ and send us documents always with tracking numbers to make sure they would arrive.
All in all, we felt completely safe and exceptionally well cared for and we had a very nice and personal but also professional relationship with Sally Tomkinson. It was always a pleasure communicating with her and we are so very grateful for her time, patience and the effort she put into our visa application to make our dream come true.
Thank you TEG and a special huge thank you to Sally Tomkinson and her colleagues. We can only recommend you and your services to anyone struggling to decide whether to get immigration advice or not, but we owe you so much more. Thanks for making this possible!
Thomas, Emily and Christine (happy customers from 2012 to 2015).
OUR DREAM BECAME A REALITY THANKS TO THE EMIGRATION GROUP
From the moment we came home from our summer holidays to rainy Manchester, UK from sunny NZ we talked about the possibilities of emigrating and whether our dreams could be realised. We did some research and found The Emigration Group and attended one of their seminars in October 2014. The information that we discovered here was crucial in our decision to move abroad and we also considered how valuable an agent would be. We asked around and talked to some ex pats in NZ who advised us to “go it alone” but this prospect was too daunting, especially as we both had busy working lives and not much spare time. We went ahead and had our first appointment with The Emigration Group in February 2015 where prices and timeframes were clearly explained. Then it was all systems go! My husband secured a job offer in NZ and whilst our residency visa was being prepared, a work visa was also arranged as a start date of the end of July 2015 was looming. Fighting back tears, we said our goodbyes to family and friends and started our adventure flying into Singapore for a couple of days before we finally arrived in sunny NZ on 21 July 2015. My husband was straight into work and within six weeks, we had notification that our residency visas had been approved. Our passports were sent off and received back within a couple of weeks, clearly displaying our new visas. We could not be any happier!
Our dream only became a reality because of the support, guidance and professionalism shown by The Emigration Group, in particular Sally. We were always aware of costs and timeframes and Sally advised us when to do certain things, like when to apply for our police clearance certificates and undertake our medicals. The knowledge that Sally has was reassuring. Everytime we called (which was often) she was able to dampen our fears and guide us on our journey. All timescales were clear and processes explained to us so we felt in control of the journey we were experiencing.
Thank you so much Sally and The Emigration Group. We are happily settled in NZ having the time of our lives – we are truly grateful for ALL the guidance and support to get us here.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help, endless advice & full support through every single bit of this process.
We truly are so grateful, you’ve helped us achieve our dream and we could not have done any of this without you. No matter how small the questions you answered them all. Through all the frustrating times you’ve been there for us with your reassuring words & you’ve kept us all calm & stress free throughout it all.
We have recommended you to all our friends that want to emigrate. Your help & knowledge is priceless.
Thank you again!
Take care & all the best wishes for the future.
I don't have words that would convey our thanks for your efforts in making this day come true. You were simply outstanding. All those questions we had (and will likely sill have), all those patient and extra-friendly emails you sent our way, all your kind words: they didn't go unnoticed and they helped so much! We would like to thank you sincerely for your services and we are aware that you'll likely brush it off with a "I'm just doing my job", but I don't think that would cover it. You've done much more than that. You helped us make our dream come true.
We hope you are well and wish you all the very best for your future.
We just want to say thank-you so much for all your fantastic help, support and expert advice, in particular, since the beginning of the year. Looking back we would not have been able to achieve this in such a short time frame without you. Everything happened very quickly with the job offer just before Christmas and it was an opportunity we had to take and we now know how efficiently you worked on our behalf.
We would certainly recommend yourselves to anybody in the same position as ourselves due to your expertise in dealing with New Zealand immigration agencies. Just knowing the processes and what was needed by when was absolutely crucial along with your empathy when things were taking longer than expected.
Just wanted to let you know that Paul and I arrived safely in Australia on 1st July and it’s been a whirl wind of a week!!! Melbourne is awesome and we are so happy we chose the state of Victoria to live.
We both would like to thank you and Mike for all your help and advice along the way, I know it was literally 3 years to the day since we started the process and throughout it was touch and go as to whether we were going to be granted our permanent visa! However that is behind us and we are here and very happy and looking forward to our new lives.
We already have a couple of interviews lined up for jobs and this will determine where we live. Currently we are enjoying the CBD of Melbourne and there is so much to do and are embracing every minute until we start work which hopefully won’t be too long.
Again thanks for all your help.
After making the big decision to move to New Zealand with my partner, we were faced with 2 choices. The first was to go it alone, but after reading up on what we needed to do to get all the paperwork and evidence together we got really overwhelmed. So we looked at option 2, which was finding a company who could take away all the confusion and stress, and after a bit of searching we came across The Emigration Group!
We askeda few questions to make sure this was the way forward, and thanks to the friendy and helpful advice from Olly, we knew we would be in safe hands. Sally thenguided us every step of the way, telling us exactly what was needed of us, and really simplified the process. Once everything was sent off we played the waiting game, but we didn't wait for long, we soon got the call that would change our lives forever, I was granted my Permanent Residency to New Zealand!
I will be forever grateful to Sally and the team for everything they have done to make this whole process quick, easy and stress-free. I would recommend them to anyone looking to make that big move!
Thank you again

The visa grant news has only just fully sunk in! :) It took a while. When I told Danny, he actually cried with emotion, he really wants to go! I appreciate there is still that risk that we will not be able to settle in Australia ( I may fail to find a job , you never know) but we will be giving it our best shot.
I just wanted to say thank you again, you did such a grand job on my visa case, you were so professional and spurred me on when you felt I was sabotaging the process by being so disorganised or occassionally loosing faith.I thought I had no hope after 6 years of banging my head on the brick wall of Australian immigration rules! THANK YOU!
Many thanks and kind regards,
Dear Sally, Paul and the rest of the team,
Thank you so much for all you have done for us over the past three years. It has been a verylong arduous journey to get our visas, but well worth it now we are happily in NZ. Your time, patience and professional advise has all paid off. Unbelievable support through our very complex application.
I would recommend your services to anyone out there thinking of emigrating, as it's not an easy process and guidance certainly pays off.
Thanks Dave & Kelly
I wanted to apologise for not having written or emailed to say a HUGE THANKYOU for all your tireless effort and hard work in securingour visa. Your faith in us finally achieving our dream was amazing and we are so thankful for how helpful you were when we bombarded you with barages of questions.
We have booked our flights for the Gold Coast for October to activate our visa and we even have our house on the market!!! The prospect of us "Living the Dream" is now so close.
I wish you and The Emigration Group great things for the future.
Sincere and heartfelt thanks, Myra, Mark and Alfie.
