The individuals with control of the Applicant, being Bei Keen Wong and her family, intend to migrate to New Zealand and reside here indefinitely.
Overseas persons intending to reside in New Zealand indefinitely are not required to show that their investment in sensitive land is likely to benefit New Zealand. This is because the ownership of that land will assist new migrants to settle in New Zealand and the benefits of the proposed migration will be considered under immigration legislation.
