The New Zealand government has created a new rebalancing or equalizing strategy by creating a new investor visa to attract well experienced migrants to invest in the country's domestic businesses.
The new investor visa name is the new Active Investor Plus visa, which has been created in the place of the old investments-related visa. This new visa enables foreign nationals to make good investments in most of the New Zealand businesses and also make some difference in the economic and regional routes of New Zealand.
The old investment visas always led the migrants to end up investing in shares and bonds, instead of investing directly in businesses.
Now the new Active investor Plus will allow the migrants to directly in the New Zealand businesses that produce as many high skilled jobs as possible to add on to economic growth, instead of leading to an unassertive investment.
The eligibility criteria for this visa is a minimum investment of NZ$5 million, and only half of it can be used to invest on liquid equities. The investment that an individual is making must be an active investment. The passive investment needs to be $15 million.
The passive investment that is in liquid equities is accepted for 50% of the new investment, whereas the bonds and the properties are not considered as passive investments.
A new visa will be replacing the existing Investor 1 and Investor 2 visa categories very soon.
This new Active Investor Plus visa will be ready for the migrants from 19th September, 2022. After 27 July, 2022, the Investor 1 and Investor 2 visas will no longer get accepted. The applications that are currently available will continue to get processed under New Zealand immigration.
