  • To be eligible to be granted an extended work visa, the principal applicant must convince the immigration official that the investment funds stated in the business plan for the proposed business to be established in NZ has been transferred from the applicant’s bank account to the Kiwi country; AND
  • The immigration minister must also get convinced that the principal applicant has taken proper steps to set up the proposed business in NZ
