Permanent residence success story
Success comes to those who dare to try
Manesh (not his real name) arrived in Wellington with his family and a suitcase. He had no qualifications, no specific skill set nor particularly sought-after work experience.
Manesh was stuck working long and hard. He had no qualms about this, and nothing was too difficult to do. He was an honest and upright citizen wanting to do things the right way.
His family had the same ethos.
When Manesh met me, he had already tried many routes to get permanent residence for New Zealand, but his many attempts at gaining a residence visa were all met with a closed door.
His prospects for permanent residency in New Zealand were dim.
Immigration strategy for permanent residence
Once I ascertained his background, aspirations and his outlook, I knew we were onto a potential winner and we agreed to help him get a residence visa for New Zealand.
He was not going to give up, his spiritual bent, his faith, and his disposition were enough to carve an immigration strategy and a way for our legal team to get him and his family granted permanent residence status. And that is exactly what we did.
Manesh was one of my first immigration law cases and a permanent residence success story. He taught me that a new migrant with resilience can move mountains. He just needed appropriate guidance and a little helping hand in the beginning.
Inspirational NZ migrant
Manesh today is a highly successful entrepreneur with an ever-expanding business in Australia, Singapore, India and the Middle East. He recently purchased a million-dollar-plus residential property on the hills of Auckland, an area in which rich businesspeople and top corporate executives live. Manesh’s success has been a source of inspiration to our legal firm over the years. And New Zealand as a whole is better place because of him.
New Zealand is the ultimate winner
Because of his business acumen and hard work, there is an increase of money circulating in this economy; a positive flow on effect on all. And he remains what he was all those years ago: humble and hard working.
There are many people like Manesh in New Zealand. Their stories are to be celebrated as they give inspiration to newcomers who are grappling their way in the dark.
Successful migration journey
The migration journey has not failed those fortunate enough to take risks and move their paradigm. Their change in approach, skills and hard work leads to such individuals finding themselves in the privileged positions of entrepreneurs, innovators and leaders; things have worked out better than expected.
Idesi Legal takes pride in working with those who share Manesh’s ethos.
