Family Settlement

NZEAS first language counselors from Japan, China, Korea, Thailand and other countries have lived, studied and worked in New Zealand for many years. With the wisdom and knowledge of the New Zealanders working in the company there is a lot of experience to draw upon for advising new visitors, settlers and migrants to our country. There are also professional advisers we can recommend in matters of business establishment, legal matters, property transactions and education alternatives as well as social and recreation opportunities that can be introduced to be able to live the New Zealand lifestyle.

There are many things to understand about a country when you first arrive and it is easy to make mistakes from poor decisions. NZEAS counselors are the first point of call for our clients to gather information and to be supported in their decisions. Our service provides peace of mind attention to the details of making settlement in New Zealand a successful and stress free experience.
