Unlicensed Immigration Advisers
With the increase in number of migrants, comes great Immigration responsibility, especially when Immigration frauds focusing the migrants are on the rise. Immigration New Zealand is facing just the same and necessary warnings by the authorities should help foreign New Zealand Visa applicants.

Barry Smedts, who is the Registrar of New Zealand Immigration Authority, confirmed investigation of several fraud advisers in 2013 alone. Some of these fraud advisers operate from home whereas others operate from rented places. Khadijah Lolohea aka Khadijah Piu was caught amidst a widespread Tongan Immigration scam; they were later convicted in court. 
Sunita Devi face more than 8 charges, whereas Ashneel Nand face more than 42 for amassing more than 50,000 USD from innocent migrants. Conman such as Tengyu Yuan have even advertised their services on newspapers to swindle more than 100,000 USD from migrants on New Zealand Visa.

Taking many similar incidents into concern, Immigration New Zealand Authority have set up few tips to avoid such unlicensed swindlers, which will help foreign migrants, especially the ones coming to study under New Zealand Student Visas.

Migrants whether students or workers with New Zealand work visa, should choose a licensed adviser or exempt. New Zealand lawyers can be found among the exempt people, the recognized advisers and the exempt people can be found in and respectively. Never comply with people who ask to lie to the INZ authority, lying to Immigration New Zealand is an offence and this can affect ones future visa proceedings, be it student visa to New Zealand or New Zealand work visa.

Anyone who avoids his or her name on your student visa application or New Zealand work Visa Application must be avoided. The authorities will not accept applications of visa to New Zealand, unless a genuine adviser signs the application. Every visa application form has sections of genuine advisers to complete and sign on it.

Another simple tip offered by INZ is not to sign any document that you don’t understand. Make sure the application form is filled and go through each and every section before you sign it, moreover, if you find something is fishy, contact INZ before putting a sign on the paper. 
Last but not the least tip from INZ is not to believe any claims an adviser make, they can sound just like an INZ authorized adviser. They can even convince the migrants about their immense contacts in INZ to con them.

Having a good New Zealand Immigration consultant, which is also a recognized visa consultant for New Zealand by Immigration New Zealand, will guide you through all the visa processes the safe way and keep you away from harms way.
