The decision-making capacities of the Immigration Dept are looking a bit dodgy in NZ. In the same week that a murderer has been allowed to stay, an old businessman who moved here on a Entrepreneurs Visa, paid $700,000 for a business, employs people in one of the highest unemployed areas, has family here, has business revenues of $2million, has been rejected.
The problem of course seems to be the way the cases were assessed. The businessman was given a visa, so he should be allowed to stay. There is an expectation of continuity when you establish a business. Deporting him can only do irreparable harm to his commercial activities, having already prompted him to move half way around the world. Read the story at the NZ Herald.
