My name is Elena Bollino and I am a New Zealand licensed immigration adviser.

Before becoming a New Zealand citizen I was, like you are now, a migrant to New Zealand.

I was born and raised in Italy. I completed my University Degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, with Specialization in Chinese Language and Culture at the Istituto Universitario Orientale University in Naples

I have travelled in many places and I worked and lived in Rome, Beijing, Paris and London. This gave me the opportunity to improve my language skills. In fact I speak, besides English, Italian, French, Spanish and Mandarin.

11 years ago I found a job in New Zealand and I decided to stay. After less than a year I became a New Zealand resident.

I know all the emotional turmoil that accompanies the visa application process: the anxiety, the waiting, the uncertainty of the future as I’ve been there myself.

Having worked for Immigration New Zealand for 5 years, from 2011 to 2016, I also understand visas assessment process, the reasoning behind the process and how a decision is reached.

I have completed the Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology, New Zealand.

The experience I had combined with the competence and the skills gained through the studies in immigration advice allow me to provide objective and professional immigration advice tailored to your circumstances and your needs.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Dahil sa iyong tulong, madali kong nakuha ang aking residency at ako'y makapapanatili na dito sa NZ hanggat gusto ko.


You've been really great in helping me with all visa applications to INZ until I got my residency. Your process is very organised, systematic and you explain everything to us so we could understand clearly. Also if we ask something, you respond immediately and even entertain our queries during weekends.  

We are very thankful as you made it very easy for us, we just need to provide all the requirements and you do everything. We are very satisfied with your work and we therefore recommend your services.

Because of your help, I got my residency easily and I've got to stay in NZ as long as I want."
