Kiwi Colleagues, Shall We Make It Permanent?
Whether is a sibling-like relationship with all its similarities, squabbles, affection, jest, and in some cases, flat out rivalry – you would be hard pressed to find two greater sovereign countries as close as Australia + New Zealand.
2020 has certainly had an underlying theme of uncertainty. So, if you’re a New Zealander living and working in Australia, now might be the perfect time to consider making things permanent; dual citizenship certainly has a nice ring to it – doesn’t it?
At Techvisa we are proud to be assisting a range of clients hailing from New Zealand the opportunity to firmly put down roots on Aussie soil under the 189 Skilled Independent Visa (NZ Stream). That’s right – Kiwi’s have now got their own stream.
The COVID-era and our increasingly globalised world sees Australia and New Zealand huddle even closer together to support our shared regional and economic interests. Ease of migration between our two nations has always been a part of our shared history and while we’re aching for the days where we could jump on a flight and drop in on our neighbours, murmurs of the Trans-Tasman bubble are ever-increasing. The travel bubble would mean Aussies and Kiwis might, within months, be able to fly across the ditch and revel in an overseas holiday, something that we’ll never again take for granted.
