Our Background - New Zealand Migration
On Arrival Team
On Arrival was founded by Don and Eve Casagranda.
We moved our family from Canada to New Zealand in 1986, and after that experience we recognised the need for a resettlement service and the value it could provide to others interested in New Zealand migration.
Who would have anticipated the stress of experiencing a new city, new culture, new job, new home and new schools all at once?
From that point onwards we committed ourselves to ensuring that other people's resettlement experience was a positive one.
Since 1987 we have assisted hundreds of individuals and families to adopt New Zealand as their home. We have also assisted many local New Zealanders to relocate to new cities in New Zealand.
We understand the emotional impact of your decision to move to a new country and the stress this can put on you, your family and your friends. Especially as you contemplate how you will integrate with a new culture.
You owe it to yourself and your family to have a support team in place to ease any concerns.
This is what On Arrival is about, and why we are here for you.
On Arrival Resettlement Consultants New Zealand Migration
On Arrival has Resettlement Consultants in all the main centres of New Zealand, and in many of the more popular regional areas, this is one of our Major Points of Difference.
All of our Resettlement Consultants are ladies who have gone through an international move themselves, and are selected for their knowledge of the region and their ability to understand what it is like to relocate your home and family, and so have empathy with our clients’ requirements.
