What Our Clients are Saying About Us


1 February 2017

'It was really nice getting an email that your Residence application has been approved and especially getting this after 8 long years in New Zealand.  I met Peter Ryan from Capital Immigration in February 2016 regarding my work visa for a new job and he assured me that he will get it done for sure and he didi it in a few weeks... Peter and his team helped me in every possible way to show me the right path regarding my application.  The best thing is communication, during the whole process I was surprised how Peter and his team managed to communicate with every individual so nicely.  Also, it was always very clear, understandable and in a respectful manner...I always recommend Capital Immigration Services and especially Peter Ryan, to all my contacts in need of Immigration advice.  Thanks, Peter & team..'

'Peter treated my case as unique to my personal situation and advised my options and the best way to change my current paperwork to better meet stronger chances of residence application.  It was clear to me that Peter & the team were very experienced and caring and they genuinely treated my application specific to my situation.  Looking back Peter already seemed to know what an officer would request and assisted me at all ties with excellent professional ongoing communication.  I am most happy to have received my Residency Visa and can only recommend the services of Peter and his team.  Thank you to you all.'

'Being on a working holiday visa from Belgium I was lucky enough to secure an exciting Design position with an excellent employer in Wellington.  However, my visa was running out and I applied for a new work visa and lodged the application.  To my disappointment, the application was declined and I was most worried and concerned as I had very little time left on my current visa.  After visiting advisers and lawyers, I proceeded with Peter Ryan who clearly explained how we could meet instructions to apply for a specific Essential Skills Work Visa.  Nothing was too much trouble and Peter who provided clear information instructions, worked with my employers and myself to make sure our application was best practice.  In a very short time period, my application was approved and I am able to continue to work in my chosen career.  In summary, they are respectful, caring immigration practice who I could only recommend without any hesitation.'


Experienced. Professional. Dedicated.  Meet the team behind the reputation of our successful practice.
