Success Stories

Section 61 – when you become illegal in the country!


“My work visa was refused and I became illegal

in New Zealand. I didn’t know what to do but my

employer suggested me to contact Carmento.

Carmento helped me in getting a new work visa

under section 61 and I can now focus on building

my career in New Zealand.”

Work Visa – when you have the job offer but need a visa!

” I found a job but was not sure if I will get a work visa. Carmento helped me and my employer in the entire process and helped me in getting a 3 year work visa. My employer was very pleased that Carmento helped them at every step and provided them with Immigration advice and helped with all the paperwork.
