Immigration Law Practice


Ismail Rasheed has significant experience in immigration matters through his consultancy work in Wellington. He was associated with Thomas New Zealand Immigration Consultancy Firm as an immigration adviser for many years.


Thoroughness is key when it comes to immigration applications. IR Legal will guide you through the same immigration processes Immigration Officers are required to follow.


Immigration matters can often be challenging and stressful for immigrants wanting to either work or permanently settle in New Zealand. Difficult and complex legislation is often not easily understood by lay people. In order to give high quality immigration advice, a sound understanding of immigration law is required. All New Zealand immigration advisers must now be licensed, but a licence does not necessarily mean an adviser has a legal qualification. Lawyers are exempt from this licensing requirement due to the stringent professional regulations they are required to follow and the professional development training they must undergo. So, with IR Legal, you can be totally confident you have the right representation.


As an immigrant himself, Ismail Rasheed understands the hopes and dreams of those who wish to migrate to New Zealand and become real Kiwis. He understands your cultural needs and the feelings of displacement you will experience when removed from family support, social values and cultural habits you understood, and the comfort and security offered by your country you are planning to leave behind. So, at IR Legal, we do not stop at immigration advice. We can provide guidance in housing, business, employment, and other legal needs.  We can also introduce you to community support groups where necessary.
