About the Active Investor Plus Visa

The visa requires you to:

  • invest a total of between NZ$5 million and NZ$15 million (depending on a weighting system that incentivises more ‘active’ investments)

  • invest across three years and maintain the investment for a further fourth year

  • spend 117 days in New Zealand across the four-year conditional visa period

  • have a reasonable command of English to at least Level 5 of the International English Language Testing System.

Investment Options and Weighting:

The Active Investor Plus Visa offers four distinct investment options to cater to your preferences, with weighted multiples applied to encourage more active investments:

  1. Direct Investments (3x multiple): Invest directly into New Zealand businesses and receive the highest weighting for your investment. e.g. an investor could meet the required investment amount by investing NZ$5m into direct investments.
  2. Managed Funds (2x multiple): Invest in approved managed funds, like Punakaiki Fund, and every $1 invested counts as $2 towards your visa conditions.
  3. Listed Equities (1x multiple): Invest in New Zealand listed equities, such as shares on the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX). Equities are capped at a maximum investment of 50% ($7.5m) of the total NZ$15m requirement and no additional weighting is applied to your investment.
  4. Philanthropic Donations (1x multiple): Invest in qualifying New Zealand charities. Philanthropy is capped at a maximum investment of 50% ($7.5m) of the total NZ$15m requirement and no additional weighting is applied to your investment.
