新西蘭永久居留權介紹 New-Zealand Permanent Residency Introduction
新西蘭目前提供兩種投資移民簽證選擇：新西蘭（投資者1）簽證和新西蘭（投資者2）簽證。任何一種簽證的成功申請者都可以為自己和他們的家人（配偶和 24 歲或以下的受撫養子女）在新西蘭獲得永久居留權。因新西蘭擁有高品質的生活以及譽為世界上數一數二的醫療保健系統，所以被廣泛的稱為最理想的移民目的地之一。New Zealand currently offers two investment immigration visa options: the New Zealand (Investor 1) Visa and the New Zealand (Investor 2) Visa. Successful applicants of either visas can gain permanent residency for themselves and their family (spouse and dependent children of 24 years or younger) in New Zealand, which is considered one of the most ideal destinations for immigration boasting a high quality of living with one of the world’s best education and health care systems.
投資者1 (Investor 1)
申請人必須在新西蘭投資 1000 萬新西蘭幣，為期 3 年。簽證獲批後，申請人必須在其 3 年投資期的最後 2 年中至少有 44 天在新西蘭度過。如果申請人已投資至少 250 萬新西蘭幣的增長投資，他們將需要在 3 年的投資期內在新西蘭度過 88 天。投資者 1 沒有年齡、語言、教育或工作經驗要求。The applicant must invest NZD 10 million in an acceptable investment in New Zealand for 3 years. Upon approval of the visa, the applicant is required to spend a minimum of 44 days of the last 2 years of their 3-year investment period in New Zealand. If the applicant has invested a minimum of NZD 2.5 million in growth investments, they will need to spend 88 days in New Zealand within the 3-year investment period. There are no age, language, education, or work experience requirements to qualify for Investor 1.
投資者2 (Investor 2)
申請人必須證明至少有 3 年公認的商業經驗，年齡在 65 歲或以下，並滿足必要的語言要求。申請人必須在可接受的投資中至少投資 300 萬新西蘭幣，為期至少 4 年。但如果申請人投資於包括住宅新開發項目在內的增長型投資，雖然他們必須證明有 300 萬新西蘭幣的可用資金，但實際投資金額將減少 50 萬新西蘭幣至 250 萬新西蘭幣。一旦申請者投資 2 簽證獲得比準，申請人必須在 4 年內在新西蘭度過至少 438 天。根據所進行的投資類型，可能適用不同的居住要求。The applicant must demonstrate at least 3 years of recognized business experience, be 65 years or younger, and meet the requisite language requirements. The applicant must investment a minimum of NZD 3 million into an acceptable investment for a minimum of 4 years. However, if the applicant invests in growth investments including residential new developments, whilst they have to show the availability of funds for NZD 3 million the actual investment amount is reduced by NZD 500,000 to NZD 2.5 million. Once they have been approved for an Investor 2 visa, the applicant must spend a minimum of 438 days over 4 years in New Zealand. Different residency requirements may apply depending on the type of investments made.
任一類別的“可接受投資”包括新西蘭政府、地方當局或新西蘭註冊銀行發行的債券、新西蘭公共/私營公司的股權、投資金額完全與新西蘭公司相關的管理基金、新住宅由主管當局定期批准的房地產開發項目、一些商業地產和慈善投資。任一類別的“可接受的投資”包括新西蘭政府、地方當局或新西蘭註冊銀行發行的債券、新西蘭公眾的股權/私人公司、投資金額完全與新西蘭公司相關的管理基金、主管當局定期批准的新住宅地產開發、一些商業地產和慈善投資。“Acceptable investments” for either streams include bonds issued by the New Zealand government, local authorities, or by New Zealand registered banks, equity in New Zealand public/private firms, managed funds where the amount invested relates wholly to New Zealand companies, new residential property developments, which are regularly approved by competent authorities, some commercial properties, and philanthropic investments.
如何選擇投資途徑 Which pathway is best suited to your needs?
每種途徑都有其優勢，最合適的途徑取決於申請人的需求以及他們滿足必要標準的能力。投資者 1 的更高投資無疑等同於不那麼嚴格的要求，包括：
Each pathway has its advantages, and the most appropriate route depends on the needs of the applicant as well as their ability to meet the requisite criteria. The higher investment for Investor 1 undoubtedly equates to less stringent requirements including:
– Minimum investment of NZD 10 million
– No age limit
– No business experience requirement
– Lower number of minimum days of physical residence
– No quota
– No point-based system
– Only required to hold the investment for a minimum of 3 years
而投資者 2 簽證的較低投資要求為：

– 只對 65 歲或以下的人開放
– 每年 400 份申請的配額
Whilst a lower investment for the Investor 2 visa requires:
– Minimum investment of NZD 3 million
– Need to hold the investment for a minimum of 4 years
– Open to those that are 65 years or younger
– 3 years of recognised business experience
– Quota of 400 applications a year
– Points-based system to assess language, health and character
申請流程 Application Process
投資者 1 的申請流程要求申請人提交申請表以及證明文件和申請費。一旦申請人獲得批准，他們有 12 個月的時間將指定的投資資金轉移到新西蘭，然後轉入可接受的投資。申請人還必須證明資金來自申請中指定的來源。簽證獲批後，申請人必須將資金維持在可接受的投資中，並確保他們在新西蘭度過所需的時間。在投資期結束時，如果投資在 3 年內保持不變，則申請人和申請中包含的任何家庭成員都有可能申請永久居留權。The application process for Investor 1 requires an applicant to submit an application form along with supporting documents and an application fee. Once the applicant has been approved, they have 12 months to transfer the nominated investment funds to New Zealand and then into an acceptable investment. The applicant must also show that the funds came from a source named in the application. After the visa is granted, the applicant must maintain the funds in the acceptable investment and ensure they spend the required amount of time in New Zealand. At the end of the investment period, if the investment is maintained during the 3 years there is a possibility for the applicant, and any family member included in the application, to apply for permanent residence.
對於投資者 2，申請人必須連同申請費一起提交一份意向書 (“EOI”) 表格，並滿足資格點測試。如果申請人的 EOI 獲得了足夠的分數，被提名的申請人將收到申請邀請，然後將有 4 個月的時間發送申請並附上證明文件。一旦申請人獲得批准，他們將有 12 個月的時間將指定的投資資金轉移到新西蘭並轉入可接受的投資。申請人還必須證明資金來自申請中指定的來源。簽證獲批後，申請人必須將資金維持在可接受的投資範圍內，並確保他們在新西蘭度過所需的時間。在投資期結束時，如果在 4 年內保持投資，申請人和申請中包含的任何家庭成員都有可能申請永久居留權。For Investor 2, the applicant will have to submit an Expression of Interest (“EOI”) form together with the application fee and also satisfy the eligibility point test. If the applicant is awarded enough points for their EOI, nominated applicants will receive an invitation to apply and will then have 4 months to send their application with supporting documentation. Once the applicant has been approved, they will have 12 months to transfer the nominated investment funds to New Zealand and into an acceptable investment. The applicant must also show that the funds came from a source named in the application. After the visa is granted, the applicant must maintain the funds in the acceptable investment and ensure that they spend the required amount of time in New Zealand. At the end of the investment period, if the investment is maintained during the 4 years there is a possibility for the applicant, and any family member included in the application, to apply for permanent residence.
居住滿 5 年後，適用於任一途徑，也有可能申請新西蘭公民身份。After 5 years of residency, applicable to either route, there is also the possibility to apply for New Zealand Citizenship.
