However, as a last resort, we requested Mr. Yamasaki's assistance with our visa application. Despite the short timeframe to our desired entry date into New Zealand, Mr. Yamasaki was understanding and accommodating, showing great patience and professionalism.
First and foremost, he provided precise and detailed guidance on the required documents, which allowed us to prepare our paperwork smoothly. Furthermore, while we were assembling the various documents, Mr. Yamasaki concurrently reviewed the ones we had already provided, ensuring no time was wasted. He responded promptly to any queries and concerns we had. He conducted a thorough inquiry into our marital status, demonstrating a compassionate understanding of our situation. Moreover, he meticulously analysed us against partnership requirements, a task we could never have accomplished on our own.
Thanks to Mr. Yamasaki's unwavering dedication and the absolute trust that New Zealand's government had in him, we received our visa approval within a mere half-day from the notification of document submission completion. The time it took for both the visa application process and the approval was nothing short of extraordinary, and it would not have been possible without Mr. Yamasaki's invaluable assistance. As a result, we were able to enter New Zealand in time, and my wife successfully gave birth there. In our journey of immigrating and giving birth overseas, Mr. Yamasaki played an indispensable role.
We are extremely grateful, and it would have been frightening to think about what might have happened if we hadn't crossed paths with Mr. Yamasaki. If we ever need assistance with another application in the future, we will not hesitate to seek Mr. Yamasaki's help. Mr. Yamasaki, we are truly, truly thankful for your support during that critical time.
2. Very empathetic towards their clients I was worried about entrusting my personal information online, but he let me manage it with a password and was thorough about how to manage it. He also kindly responded to emails many times and corrected supporting documents many times. In terms of interactions, he contacted me many times, from early in the morning until late at night. Also, I had several online meetings with Aki before applying, and my concerns were alleviated each time. I don't think any other service cares about their clients as much as Aki does.
3. The highest quality cover letter Aki writes a cover letter that explains why it is appropriate to issue a visa in light of the law, tailored to the client's situation. It is doubtful that you would be able to write a cover letter of the quality that Aki wrote by yourself. The cover letter written for my application was very persuasive and gave me a lot of peace of mind when applying for my visa. This is the best service for those who are worried about visa applications. I was able to apply for a visa with great peace of mind. I have a habit of overthinking, so I might have been a difficult client. Yet, he offered kind support until the visa approval and I thank him very much for that. I would like to request his service again in the future.
While our visa application was in process, we temporarily returned to our home country, Aki provided precise advice on the potential consequences of returning to NZ on different dates. Additionally, Aki helped us obtain proof of residence in NZ to renew our driver's licenses. Aki is genuinely passionate about his clients and what he does in his work. It may be accurate to say that his passion is conveyed when communicating with clients. We will cherish this connection and undoubtedly choose Aki again when applying for permanent resident visas.
Before, I had asked a lawyer for assistance with my visa. At that time, I trusted them, but looking back now, I'm not sure if they really thought things through properly. There were communication issues because the lawyer wasn't Japanese, and I had many concerns. Despite paying a high fee, I couldn't obtain the visa, and I had no choice but to return to Japan. It was tough back then. However, I couldn't completely let go of the desire to immigrate to New Zealand. While I was contemplating various things, I believe that the decision to use his service has led me to where I am now. I found Aki was taking a holistic approach to obtaining my visa. He took the time to practice interviews with me and even assisted during nerve-wracking phone calls with the officer. I am truly grateful for all the help I received from him. Due to my previous negative experience with the lawyer, I had some concerns before asking him for help. But this time, I was able to obtain my visa successfully. I'm really glad I reached out for assistance. Thank you so much!
I approached several immigration advisers, and Aki was, by far, the kindest and most responsive. I was convinced this gentleman would be reliable, leading me to sign a contract with him. In the last three weeks, he gave me a clear list of required documents, and to-do lists etc., for me to take quick action. And thanks to Aki, my student visa was successfully granted.
Thank you very much for the last three weeks! After talking to several NZ immigration advisers, I can only say that Aki is the kindest, most pleasant to deal with, and most responsive.
Once again, thank you so much this time. If there is another opportunity, I would love to get in touch with you!
Naomi had a very complex visa history and Aki put forward a detailed and thorough case for why NZ Immigration should accept her application. This included successfully challenging an unwarranted exclusion from Australia, caused through negligent legal advice from a previous lawyer. This exclusion would have led to an automatic rejection of Naomi’s NZ visa application without the detailed argument Aki included in the application. Because of his hard work and comprehensive cover letters, Naomi was awarded her visa today within just one month of applying, despite the odds being stacked against her. Aki fully invested himself into Naomi’s case, and we are so thankful to him. We fully recommend NZ Visa Partner to anyone looking to migrate to New Zealand.
There is a reason why I said "little hope".
I have a history of visa cancellation in Australia due to my previous lawyer's advice and even my tourist visa applications were rejected. Other educational agents that I consulted before talking to Aki, refused to listen to me further as soon as I mentioned the visa cancellation. When I talked to Aki for the first time, I quickly thought "I want to ask him to represent my student visa application!!"
He cordially listened to me and gave me strategies based on each and every piece of information I provided. When I voiced my concerns or something that I didn't fully agree, he gave me ample opportunities to discuss it deeply until both agreed.
Instead of "I, the adviser, just apply for a visa", I genuinely felt Aki's genuine attitude of "we, the adviser and client, obtain a visa together". If my Australian lawyer had been like Aki, I believe my Australian visa would not have been cancelled. I cannot thank Aki enough for researching Australian visa regulations in detail as well. Despite the time difference, his email replies were meticulous and super-quick, making me wonder when he actually sleeps and I wished he had taken weekends off.
I have now secured a New Zealand student visa without any problem. I can't wait to see my Australia- based partner and dogs in New Zealand. I really owe it to Aki. If I hadn't met Aki, I would never have been able to get the visa. That is for sure. "More serious about getting a visa than a client!" I can tell you there really is such a visa adviser. His name is Aki. If you are worried about a visa, please do not hesitate to consult Aki.
In my case, probably, other immigration advisers would have refused to take my case. The case was extremely complex and onerous but, Aki was consistently caring.
All the information was perfect and well-considered so that there was no room for disputes.
Aki's cover letter to INZ was carefully written. All the correspondence with my immigration officers was communicated by Aki and I believe without Aki's help, I could not have obtained a resident visa.
I suggest you contact Aki if you have some concerns about your visa applications.
The visa representation fees do not come cheap, but considering Aki's substantial work, which was more than I paid him, I had to be surprised at the value that I received.
I will recommend Aki to all my workmates, and acquittance who have visa issues or need help with immigration.
Visa information is frequently updated and he gave me legal advice considering various aspects against the up-to-date information. I am going to refer Aki to my friends or acquaintances and many people needing assistance in visa matters.
Aki, thank you very much for everything.
All the best for your business.
Because of a lack of immigration knowledge and the educational agent that I was using, my student visa application was rejected. I had never expected that my student visa application would be refused. My mind went blank. for a while.In haste, I got in touch with my friend in New Zealand and was recommended to contact Aki.
It was late at night, he gave me a call to find out my situation completely. He assessed that my situation was worse than I thought (INZ may have put a warning on my file, restricting my ability to apply for a visa or enter NZ in the future) He suggested that I should prove to INZ that I am eligible for a visa in a fresh student visa application.
Thanks to his loyal and professional services, I managed to tender my new application under his representation without the luxury of time. (It was a bit daunting to go through the process again),The new application was approved just three days after a case officer was assigned. That was all thanks to Aki's communication with INZ and a lot of evidence to back up my claim as per his advice.
I can now experience a new life as a student in NZ. If you are considering studying in NZ, don't assume a student visa application is easy. Let Aki, an immigration professional, successfully get your visa with peace of mind.
I owe you my appreciation. Thank you so much again.
First of all, we did a free eligibility test by email, and his assessment was wonderfully quick, prompting us to proceed with a paid consultation and then representation service. As a result, our residency visas were issued only one and a half months after the lodgement. There was no correspondence from Immigration New Zealand to request additional evidence during the process until we saw our visas, in the shortest time. I identified the merits of seeking Aki’s legal representation for our visa applications as follows; ・ Timely updates ⇒Aki sent status updates or new immigration rule announcements on the same day, which we were incredibly assured that we were in good hands. ・ Clear strategy to maximise the chance⇒ Aki came up with the best strategy to increase the chance of getting us a successful outcome. We were impressed by his ‘outside the box” suggestions based on his vast experience and knowledge. ・Fast responses ⇒His email response was extremely quick, and his advice was accurate. ・Perfect cover letter to Immigration ⇒ I cannot think of any other word than ‘perfect’ to describe his cover letter. Backed by supporting evidence, we felt there was no way our immigration officer would oppose Aki’s rationales on the cover letter, as confirmed by the fact that there was no request by the officer at all. In conclusion, we can confidently recommend Aki, undoubtedly a top NZ immigration adviser. If you are not sure which adviser to choose now, why not consult Aki once? We are sure you'll never regret it.
I had become scared of communicating with INZ after a traffic offence and deportation liability (later cancelled) on my Resident Visa, so I decided not to do anything on my Visa for almost 10 years. After my passport renewal, I considered applying for a Permanent Resident Visa or at least extending the Travel Condition and consulted an immigration lawyer, who said the chance for success would be low. I also found out that their fee would be prohibitive. I was left with anxiety and despair.
Then, I decided to apply by myself and started to prepare documents etc if the chance was low, even by a professional. However, I was glued to the news that somebody's Visa was revoked because of giving a wrong answer on the application due to an incorrect understanding. That led me to believe that I should seek immigration advice to get them checked on the questions I was unsure how to answer and I came across NZ VISA PARTNER Aki's company website.
At first, I thought I would only seek a paid consultation, but after talking with Aki, a lot of anxiety disappeared. I strongly felt that this person could be trusted and appointed as my immigration adviser, making me decide to use his service at the end of the consultation.
The fee that was my biggest bottleneck initially differed from that of a lawyer. Aki did not charge me a success fee, and I found his price reasonable enough to pay him happily.
It only took one week from the preparation of documents to the submission to Immigration. He even gave me emails late at night and dealt with my cases at the weekend. As his company name suggests, he was a reliable partner.
The strengths that I identified in NZ VISA PARTNER Aki's services are; *Understands clients and their feelings well, *Keeps up with immigration rule changes, *Provides accurate advice and identifies potential concerns and strategies therefor, *Responds sincerely to clients' visa representation process,*The fee structure is clear.
If you are worried or troubled about your Visa, please get in touch with NZ VISA PARTNER Aki. I am sure your anxiety will be dispelled, and the road to your bright future will open. He is your future game-changer.
My permanent residence visa was granted in just three months and it was because of Aki's knowledge and experience. His confidence and achievements made him easy to trust. He gave reliable and accurate advice, and quickly responded to questions. I would say he is excellent and professional advisor .Also Aki has very friendly and nice personality. It made me feel like had been friends for a while.
Aki is the adviser whom I would definitely recommend to you.
After that, it was like a roller coaster. There were repeated requests for additional information from INZ and requests that were so unreasonable that it seemed like a fairy tale. Each time, Aki checked with the case officer, negotiated with him, and gave us advice in a polite, generous, and precise manner. While I was waiting for the outcome, there were times when I was unhappy about INZ and felt like crying. At such times, he was there for us like an old friend, listening to us and encouraging us. And he always gave me good advice. I can confidently say that I was able to obtain my visa thanks to AKI-san.If you are looking for the right advisor, I recommend you consult with Aki.
When I was looking for an advisor for my partner to get a partner visa, I got to know Aki.I was surprised at the very polite and prompt response and the reasonable fee, so I decided to ask Aki not only for the partner visa but also for the work visa and resident applications.As a result, I was able to obtain residency residence easily, which I was hoping for many years.
Originally, I had a sloppy personality, and I didn't put together past materials, so when I tried to apply, I had to organise information each time, but after using Aki's services, we used the cloud storage and I was able to apply with a thorough system so that the Immigration NZ did not point out any deficiencies by Aki's clearly instructing me what materials I needed. I remember being very relieved to hear from him over the phone not only for consultations directly related to visa application, but also for consultations on issues that could indirectly be a negative factor for visa application. Even though it was late at night on holidays, such as when I needed to take immediate action, I received an email reply immediately, and I wondered when he rests. This time, my dream came true, and I'm really glad to ask Aki-san. And thank you very much. I appreciate it very much. I will continue to recommend Aki if I have the opportunity and when I recommend it to someone.
When we came across Aki we couldn’t believe our luck, as for one he was available to speak to us after your typical immigration services hours and we were pretty desperate to speak to someone immediately. Aki rose to the challenge of this tricky case, with an extremely supportive and dedicated approach to keeping my partner in the country.Any time we had any concerns, Aki was extremely responsive and was so reliable and quick to respond to our queries and concerns. It was so reassuring to have an immigration adviser who didn’t just see our case as financial gain, but rather, somebody that we both felt we could trust. I then came into my own visa doubts as I’m currently on a WH visa and wasn’t sure if going onto a Work Visa was the best option for me. Aki was fantastic at explaining through the options with me and really helped put my mind at ease by explaining at length the different routes I could take with my visa choices. Without Aki’s help we both would be in a very different circumstance and no question ever felt like the wrong question as Aki has great people skills, aside from being a great immigration adviser. Without a doubt we will continue to use his services if and when required and would recommend him to anyone experiencing immigration issues in NZ.
I have seen many cases where a small mistake or misunderstanding of the visa application process led to rejection of applications. I feel that it is very important to ask for help from a professional, especially since I am a non-native English speaker and there is no other advisor who can explain in detail and help me in Japanese. Thank you very much for your kindness and support. If you are interested in staying in New Zealand, I highly recommend you consult Aki-san. He may be able to show you the possible options that you cannot come up by yourself.
Aki-san is truly someone who takes the visa acquisition process seriously, even more than their clients do. They not only gather information and review documents but also provide various advice with a long-term plan in mind. I think there is no other immigration advisor who thinks so seriously about their clients. Thank you very much for your thorough support.
It was certainly a lot of work to gather all the materials, but I think we were able to obtain the visa because he guided us in gathering all the materials in detail and to perfection, which we would never have been able to do by ourselves. He worked very hard, sometimes until midnight. He is more serious about getting a visa than his own clients.
I was so happy and surprised that I cried when he told me that he got the visa! I really can't thank him enough. In these days when it is difficult to get a visa due to the Coronavirus situation, I could not have done it without Aki. Soon, I would like to ask for his help again for my resident visa application.
From that point on, Aki-san carefully and thoroughly collected and instructed us on each and every document, sometimes even replying to us in the middle of the night. I think it is rare to find such a kind advisor in New Zealand, where people work only during standard work hours. Last time, I was only granted a 2-year work visa and my wife was granted a 1-year partner visa (on my own), but this time we were both granted 3-year visas. I believe that this outcome was due to the fact that we were able to submit much more detailed documents than we would have been able to do by ourselves and also due to the trust that INZ had in us. There is a saying in Japan, "The mochi(rice cake) shop knows about mochi(rice cake) the best- Better leave it to a specialist," and I believe this is exactly true. If you are interested in demonstrating the best of your ability in New Zealand, I highly recommend you contact Aki.
I have been very thankful for making yourself available to offer swift superb support despite your busy schedule. Thank you very much for suggesting many options enthusiastically. That is beyond description.I felt supported during uncertain times by knowing that you are representing my case. I would like to spend the next one year to pay back your help. I am going to need your help such as insurance but look forward to your service in the near future.
I will try my best to study English so that I can apply for a permanent residence visa as soon as possible. I hope that Aki can help me again when I apply for a resident visa. Thank you very much for your kindness and support.
If you have any doubts, I would recommend you ask Aki-san. His passion, knowledge and love for his clients is amazing. It is difficult to come from Japan at this time, but I will definitely introduce Aki to anyone I meet in the future. Thank you so much for saving me and my family. I can't thank him enough.
There was something difficult for us to explain to INZ, such as my relationship with my partner, and if I had explained and applied for the visa on my own, I think it would have been challenging to get the visa. I am very happy to have worked with Aki.
Aki-san always replied so quickly that I sometimes wondered when he was sleeping. (lol). He also answered all my questions in detail, which made me feel at ease. I am really glad that I asked him to help me with my visa application because there were many things that I would not have known if I had applied by myself, such as the impact of my previous visa application. He is the advisor that I would like to contact again!
As I was applying for a new visa, Aki contacted my boss often, and the boss was very satisfied with Aki's speed and responsiveness. Personally, I would like to work with him again in the future, eyeing permanent residence. He will do his best to support your visa application with an overwhelming amount of knowledge, even under difficult circumstances. I really appreciate his help.
Aki is a person who is more serious about getting a visa than his clients. He not only collects information and reviews documents, but also gives me various advice for the mid and long-term span. I think there is no other immigration advisor who really cares about own clients so much. Thank you very much for your generous support.
Aki's response is so quick that we worried if he takes a rest. In addition, when we were worried about our applications, he was cheerful with a few jokes without being annoyed by our questions. Reassured by such interactions, we regard him as a person whom we can depend on with peace of mind. The next time when we apply for resident visas, we would like to ask Aki again.
