QCL Update – Investor 2 Visa Category Infosheet

This category uses a points system to judge the ability of a potential investor migrant to contribute to New Zealand. Points are claimed on your Expression of Interest (EOI) for age, business experience, English language, and investment funds. All of the EOIs received are placed in a ‘pool’ – a collection of EOIs from interested people. Those with the highest points total in their EOIs may be invited to apply for residence. This policy is limited to 300 approvals per annum (this is limited to the number of applications rather than the number of people).
