2017 WELCOMES IN A NEW ERA FOR THE AJI
 

For the Auckland Jewish Immigration (AJI) 2017 will be a year of change with assistance limited to information rather than advice.

 

The reasons for changes in the AJI’s programmes are a direct reflection on the significant upgrading in the past 2-3 years of the New Zealand Immigration (NZI) Ministry processes.


These include electronic systems processing visa applications much faster and simpler with greater consistence and clarity.

 

In addition, the new NZI immigration internet website is light years ahead of the old website, designed to be easy to follow, more comprehensive and less dictatorial.

 

For those enquirers navigating the immigration process the AJI will still provide a free information service.

 

For those still having difficulties with their applications for visas, an optional arrangement is in place to refer them to a paid Jewish government registered immigration consultant.

 

This year AJI is developing an increase in support for new immigrants with their arrival and settlement process.

 

Each AJI committee member has taken on the responsibility of supporting newcomers in specialised areas of their expertise.

 

By the 1st September the AJI will have new systems working, including a delegation of AJI’s administration processing the constant stream of overseas immigration enquires. We’ll be well organised to grow the organisation in the coming years.
