"My family and I have found the professional expertise of Dr. Grace Uy and her company Asian And Philippine Immigration Assistance (NZ) Ltd to be extremely knowledgeable about New Zealand immigration law and procedure as it applies to families, individuals and skilled migrants. Dr. Grace does a regular follow-up with NZ immigration and has fast-tracked our application. We became permanent residents in 5 months' time. I was so impressed by the way she handles replies to the immigration office and doesn't get rattled.

Dr. Grace, thank you very much for making our dream come true. I will do recommend your services to people in need of immigration consultation."

"Hi! I arrived here in NEW ZEALAND as a tourist way back Oct 2008, and luckily I got a job offer that is relevant to my qualification. I had no idea how to process my documents to obtain a work permit but I met someone who recommended GRACE UY, an expert and experienced licensed immigration consultant. She was the one who helped me to make things happen, and helped with my wife's work permit, and even helped to get my children to come here to NEW ZEALAND. She is able to do everything perfectly without any hassle or delay with response time from the New Zealand immigration office, both in New Zealand and in the Philippines. A BIG THANKS to GRACE UY - - because of her expertise and excellent IMMIGRATION ADVICE, in just a very short time my FAMILY IS REUNITED AGAIN. Thanks to you GRACE, KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT JOB."

I am glad that she became my Immigration Adviser because she is the best.  She helped in every way for me to live with my husband in New Zealand.  She put every thing together for my immigration needs. She started the process before I left the Philippines.  All I had to do was wait for the reply from immigration. It was stress-free.  Grace is an angel.

"Despite the trials I underwent during the visa approval period, it was a pleasurable experience to be a client for Asian and Philippine Immigration Assistance.  In my previous extension for work visa application, I was given only a one-month visitor visa even though I had worked here in New Zealand for over two years now. With the help of Grace Uy, our Immigration Adviser, I am now back to work on an extended Work Visa, and I am soon to gain approval of my Residence Visa. I cannot say how much relief and gratification I feel right now.  Thank you very much!"

"Meeting Ma’am Grace Uy of Asian And Philippine Immigration Assistance (NZ) Ltd was simply meant to happen. After a failed and slightly expensive attempt to acquire a Visitor Visa in the Philippines, my Kiwi fiance’ and I were staying in Talisay City, Cebu, at the time we received advice from our landlady who had a link to Grace, an immigration advisor based in Auckland New Zealand.

We made contact, and I received my Visitor’s Visa based on Partnership! We decided to marry before we left for NZ…it was always our dream that we marry in the Philippines. Eventually Ma’am Grace worked my visas till I got my Resident Visa! 

At all times Ma’am Grace displayed utmost professionalism, integrity and solid advice. Her meticulous attention to detail, unending effort in dredging for partnership evidence, cheerful attitude and true friendship was an experience that my husband and I appreciated … we cannot speak more highly of her service and commitment ... we were in fact humbled!  We do have further endeavours to assign to her.
- Carlyoel Moffat, Balclutha, New Zealand
"I’m very grateful that ma’am Grace has been my adviser since my work visa up until now that I received my residency. 

She is orderly with the documents and the “need to-do lists”.
