When you apply for some residence and temporary  New Zealand visas, you will have to pay an Immigration Levy. The levy helps Immigration New Zealand to pay the costs of settling in new immigrants. If visa application includes more than four people, you’ll only need to pay the levy for the four eldest members of your family.

The objective of the New Zealand Entrepreneur Visa category is to attract migrants who can demonstrate they have been actively contributing to the start of a business in New Zealand and contributing to New Zealand’s economic development.
