If you’re an experienced businessperson interested in being self-employed in your own business, our entrepreneur visas could be for you.

To apply, you’ll need to provide a detailed business plan, have at least NZ $100,000 to invest in your business and be able to claim 120 points on our points scale. If you’re granted this visa, you can move to New Zealand and buy or set up a business. After either six months or two years you can then apply for residence under the Entrepreneur Residence Category.
