Christelle and Hannes - Sarah is always thinking 5 steps ahead

Sarah Hewitt is an absolute professional, she dots every "I" and crosses every "T", she misses nothing and is always thinking 5 steps ahead.

Sarah has guided us through a Visitor visa, Work visas and finally Residency visas within the span of 19 months. At this point she feels like part of the family.

I highly recommend Sarah to anybody who is thinking of migrating. Thank you Sarah for all you have done for me and my family.

Marc and Claire - Transparent and ethical

Hi Sarah,

Hope you are well. Thanks for all your support, help, assistance, and guidance with helping us achieve our New Zealand residency.

You are professional, handled our queries and concerns promptly. Transparent and ethical.

We highly recommend you! Thanks again .

Kelly - Sarah's service is professional, and her nature kind

Sarah's knowledge and understanding of NZ immigration requirements is phenomenal. When we first started considering immigration we had lots of questions - all of which Sarah was able to answer with sound information.

Sarah's guidance and assistance with selecting the correct visas, compiling the necessary documentation support for the applications, and ensuring that we met each requirement with the right information was instrumental. Her service is professional, and her nature kind.

We highly recommend that anyone who is considering the move to NZ get in contact with Sarah!!

Gary - It has been a pleasure dealing with Intergate

Oh my word, I don't even know what to say... I am in disbelief. I was expecting another 2 - 4 months at least.

This is amazing news, and I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and constant correspondence with this visa request. Honestly, I am still sitting here in disbelief.

It has been a pleasure dealing with Intergate, and again, I am still shocked at the rapid response we have received.


Alex - Sarah has a keen eye for detail

I found Sara extremely knowledgeable and helpful during my visa application process. Very patient with all the questions and multiple emails I sent her. Keen eye for detail and quick to pick up on any missing or outstanding points during the process.

I can definitely recommend Sarah if you need any professional assistance regarding immigration.

Roche - We have and will always recommend Sarah

We have and will always recommend Sarah to anyone who is in the process of immigrating. Her professionalism and attention to detail during the Residency process was exceptional. Not having to worry about the paperwork and admin during this process helped a lot while we adjusted in a new country, which can be stressful at times.

The time in which it took for our residence visa to be approved is testament to her thoroughness. Words cannot describe how grateful we are. Thank you!

Prinisha - Professional, knowledgeable and helpful

Sarah was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful with ensuring that we had all the necessary requirements for the visa application process. This ensured that we had a smooth process with INZ, where we had only just a few additional requirements on a complex case.

We are glad to have had Sarah's help during this stressful process. Many thanks Sarah!

Jaques - Sarah successfully guided us through our visitors, work and residency visas

We have been clients with Sarah for almost two years. She has successfully guided us through our visitors, work and residency visas.

Emigrating is a daunting task and it really helped having Sarah looking after our visas and all the paperwork behind that, it just takes a big burden of your shoulders.

Sarah and her team were always professional and they made sure that the communication channels stay open and the correct procedures and steps were followed.

I have recommended her to numerous friends, family and colleagues, and will continue to promote her services to anyone that needs help. She has been a bright star in a pretty turbulent time... She is an awesome emigration advisor - highly recommended!

Stephan - Knows the process, law and all the intricate ins-and-outs

Our family entrusted our emigration process to Sarah and her team at Intergate Emigration. Sarah delivered exceptional service throughout. She knows the process, law and all the intricate ins-and-outs and flawlessly sorted our work and residency visas. She communicated well and kept us updated and informed on what is to be expected. I can certainly recommend Sarah and wish to thank her for professional service and assistance.

Grant - Could not have asked for better!

We are now Residents in NZ. Could not have asked for better. Sarah and her team made this process seamless and all done in 4 months. Paperwork was spot on. Fully recommend her. Thanks Sarah

Helen - Thank you for your assistance!

Kia ora Maike

This is great news, we will look forward to his arrival.

Thank you very much for all your assistance in making it possible for Francois to get to NZ and come to our school, where I know we are all going to benefit from his experience and knowledge of teaching.

Nāku noa, nā

Amor - Sarah is a superhero!

Sarah is a Superhero! Not only did she submit my work visa and residency application which was approved without any queries or issues from Immigration New Zealand, she followed up multiple times on the status of my work visa. That meant Sarah had to phone New Zealand time, resulting in her waking up crazy hours at night to make the phone call to follow up. Sarah really goes the extra mile and puts in extra effort!

Sarah would regularly support me by advising on situations I had in New Zealand and her shoulders were always available for me to cry on. She is always friendly, caring and has her clients interests on heart (always), even if she has to deal with difficult people involved in the process. She made the whole process just so much easier and comfortable!

Thank you for such amazing service Sarah!

Ana - Thank you for the work you've done

Hey Sarah,

Just a quick thank you for the work you’ve done behind the scenes to help Antoinette. I’m sure that it took a considerable amount of time and effort and I’m glad she has safely arrived in NZ before she was due to start.

Thank you!

Seb - I will have no problem with recommending you wherever I go.

Hi Sarah

Just a note to say thank you for seeing me this morning on a personal level. I would just like to compliment you on your stunning friendly and polite disposition and the manner in which you conducted our meeting – you really made me feel welcome and your product knowledge is incredible. Thank you for the valuable information you gave me and I will definitely be in touch to chat again to finalize a few things. Your patience level is outstanding.

I will have no problem with recommending you wherever I go.

Thanks again so much.

Jean-Pierre - Sarah is the best thing since sliced bread!

Sarah is the best thing since sliced bread! She helped us with our visaresidency for New Zealand and was always friendly and helpful. She is very detail focused, kept us informed at all times and was willing to answer my many questions patiently.

Barend - My wife and I cannot thank you enough

Dear Sarah & Robyn,

I just would like to thank you for all your assistance and support with the process of getting our visas approved.

I recommend your work to anyone with great praise and respect. Without your assistance Lizanne and I would have been stranded and would not have known where to start.

You are the most enthusiastic and driven team I have came across in a long time with your passion, dedication and the willingness to assist where possible.

My wife and I cannot thank you enough.

Yvette - there's no one better than Sarah.

When we started the whole process we contacted numerous agencies. In our meeting with Sarah a sense of peace and comfort came over us and we knew there's no one better than Sarah. Her attention to detail and passion helped us get our visas in no time. Thank you for helping us reach our dream.

Martin - Super efficient, follows up and keeps you updated

If you are thinking of looking to work or live in New Zealand, I recommend Sarah as being the best person you could use to achieve that. She is super efficient, follows up and keeps you updated on the progress. She made my experience an absolute pleasurable experience in very tight timelines. You won't be disappointed.

Sharon - thorough, professional and diligent

Dear Maike,

I would like to say a BIG Thank You for all your help in obtaining visas for Tyler and Daniel. I would never have coped with the complications of the process.

You were at all times thorough, professional and diligent.

Have a wonderful day!

Lee - Your positive attitude gave me hope

I would just like to formally say thank you so much for all the excellent advice offered to me with regards to David’s work Visa.

As you are aware we had employed the services of another agent who was not very helpful. You were so professional in your approach in that you refused to enter into a working agreement with me until I had formally cancelled my agreement with the other agent. This was excellent advice as it would have been very unethical to use both agents together.

Your positive attitude gave me hope when I really thought that my son David would not be granted a visa to play rugby at amateur level for a whole season.

All the advice that you offered was very sound and simple and you responded to my queries within minutes via email or telephonically so it made the whole process very straight forward. The staff in your office are very polite, helpful and professional.

It was a good idea to make me submit everything once I had all the information instead of in dribs and drabs and also you filtering the information I had provided - such as not giving invitations to stay when David had accommodation organised on his contract – this would have confused the application – your experience in this regard is invaluable.

We have recommended you and passed on your details on to Hilton Travel as well as a rugby agent in New Zealand as he has had no success with other agents in this regard.

Thank you once again and I am sure we will be in contact again hopefully soon so that we can all go to New Zealand !

Jan and Georgina - impressed and satisfied with your service.

Wow! That is very unexpected and great news! That went amazingly quickly!

Thank you for working with us, we are very impressed and satisfied with your service. We appreciate the professional work.

We wish you all the best. If you need anything else from us, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Heleen Pretorius - May God bless you in every way!!

Katrin that is the BEST NEWS IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!

Thank you so so much for everything, you guys have done.

You have been such a big help and support in the whole emotional rollercoaster!!!!

May God bless you in every way!!

Duheine - Went the extra mile!

I felt that Sarah went the extra mile with our visa application. She made us feel relaxed and had everything under control. Sarah is well connected and assisted us even when we thought we failed in our application. She is a good communicator and made us feel at ease during the entire process as she explained everything in detail and were even available to assist with uncertainties during her leave.

I can definitely recommend Sarah as an immigration adviser, we would not have been successful in our application if it wasn't for her skills and prompt actions.

The Unger Family - You really do have a gem in Sarah!

Dear Stuart

After our prior conversation this is just too formally acknowledge and appreciate the professional and proficient way in which Sarah Hewitt conducted business with our family. Despite being on leave and with her family she went beyond the call of duty to help our family obtain our visas quickly. I really thank her for all her time and efforts and look forward to working with her in order to obtain our residency. You really do have a gem in Sarah.

Vicky Wolmarans - Worth your weight in gold!

Sarah Hewitt was our immigration consultant. I would recommend her anytime.

She was always available to answer all our questions and concerns. Her attention to detail made the application process less stressful and successful in the end.
Sarah definitely made our journey to get to New Zealand easier.

Thank you, you are your worth your weight in gold.

Hollee - World class competency and professionalism!

Morning Sarah

Thank you so much for the service we have received from you.

Having you help us get my residential visa was the best decision we have made, the friendly service and helpfulness in which we were helped made a stressful process that much easier. The competency and professionalism that we experienced is world class. I would recommend your services to anyone who is considering using an agent, and even those who are considering not using agent. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you again you’re a star.

Mandy Frost - Top class service

Dear Sarah and Katrin

I would like to convey my utmost gratitude to Intergate Emigration for your top quality service in getting my Partnership Residence visa to New Zealand. During the course of the processing, Intergate Emigration was well organized in preparing the papers and we felt we can rely on you for the best outcome.

I appreciate all your support and effort done by you regarding my application. The whole process went very smoothly and easily for me and it was of great value. The visa was successfully granted in March 2015. I believe this could not happen without your support.
