Is New Zealand becoming a banana republic?

Former IAA Registrar Andrew Galloway made it crystal clear when defending himself before a German court.

Andrew Galloway alleges that New Zealand law applies outside of New Zealand, everywhere in the world, including Germany. Andrew Galloway calls it the “offshore offence provision”. Andrew Galloway avers -before a German court- that relevant German law would not apply within Germany.

Here’s about New Zealand’s Immigration Adviser Authority (IAA) insisting on enforcing a law, which cannot be enforced:

  • July 2014: The Martin Jenkins Report prepared for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) concludes “that it is undesirable to retain a provision in legislation that cannot be enforced.” It is recommended to “remove the offshore offence provision on the basis that it cannot be implemented effectively”.
  • May 2017: The IAA receives advice that the offshore offence provision will not apply in some European countries.
  • March 2018: The IAA publishes a “Consultation Document” stating “MBIE does not consider that the offshore offence provision should be removed. The IAA has focused on awareness-raising in key offshore markets.” The IAA and former Registrar Andrew Galloway continue threatening professionals outside of New Zealand and outside of New Zealand’s jurisdiction.
  • May 2018: Legal proceedings commence in Europe (Germany) against the former IAA’s Registrar Andrew Galloway.
  • September 2018: The former Minister of Immigration Iain Lees-Galloway refers the matter back to the IAA stating, “The Authority is following its usual processes with regard to this case.”
  • April 2019: D J Plunkett, former Chair of the Immigration Advisers Complaints & Disciplinary Tribunal, determines to shield the IAA from scrutiny by disregarding relevant laws. In favouritism, he fabricates allegations and issues decisions without notifying or hearing individuals involved. Eventually, D J Plunkett defames a German government official.
  • October 2019: Prosecutors in Germany consider D J Plunkett’s and Andrew Galloway’s communication to be “an opinion”.
  • November 2019: The former Registrar Andrew Galloway claims “state immunity” in his defense before a German court.
  • May 2020: Andrew Galloway and the IAA are facing claims over and above $500,000 in court. The IAA refuse to accept service of legal proceedings.

 

What are we doing here?

The way open societies become closed is by disruption of the rule of law.

Only a banana republic is known to enforce unenforceable laws.

The conduct of the IAA and their officers indicate that there is no lawfulness within the IAA.

It appears New Zealand taxpayers are now paying the price.

“Creating Liberty to Move” has been the mission of our licensed immigration advisors since our founder laid the cornerstone for the first office in 2008.

The Immigration Choice Awards have been the benchmark for separating these, and for recognising those who continue to push the boundaries and shape the future of the migration industry.”.

We are honoured that Migration International Group has been recognised as a winner of the 2019  Index as Best Migration Agency 2019

Licensed Immigration Advisers in New Zealand under the Immigration Advisers Authority

 If you are looking to get immigration advice regarding New Zealand, Licensed Immigration Advisers are the people with expertise in this area who can help. To legally be able to provide immigration advice, they must be licensed under the Immigration Advisers Authority.

There are many benefits in using the services of an Immigration Adviser. These individuals are legally obligated to follow a code of conduct that require them to act in an honest, professional and respectful matter. They must provide you with continuing updates on your matter and charge fees that are fair and reasonable.

What do Immigration Advisers do? They help you explore all visa opportunities that are available to you and help you choose the one most suitable for your circumstances. They prepare and lodge all documents to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) so that you are able to settle in New Zealand. If and when there are issues with your application, the advisers are able to evaluate whether you are able to appeal a declined visa, as well as options moving forward if you are in New Zealand unlawfully. Find out more about New Zealand Migration

It is extremely important that you make sure the person you are receiving immigration advice from is indeed a Licensed Immigration Adviser. There are many risks involved if you are using someone who is unlawfully providing immigration advice. Your visa application could be returned by INZ as they do not accept applications from unlicensed people acting unlawfully, and it is highly likely that they are being dishonest with you and INZ. If it turns out you have submitted a visa application with the help of an unlicensed individual, you risk being rejected and jeopardising future visas or jobs.

New Zealand Migration Agent

There are some instances where you can receive legal immigration advice from someone who is not licensed. These people are referred to as “exempt” and it is okay to consult with them regarding immigration to New Zealand. Some entities that are exempt from being licensed are New Zealand lawyers holding a current practising certificate, education agents outside NZ (providing immigration advice on student visas only), employees of INZ, foreign consular or staff, members of Parliament, volunteers at Community Law Centres or Citizens Advice Bureau, and government employees.

Our experienced team of New Zealand Migration Agents are here to assist you throughout this process! Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions regarding migrating to New Zealand under a working visa category.
