What People Say


My specific case was quite confusing for every immigration advisor and lawyer that I contacted. However, Bernhard was honest with me and demonstrated a deep knowledge on what he does.


He took my case and drove it to success, so now I hold a permanent residence visa. Thank you Bernhard! I can recommend him with no doubt!


Dr. Bernhard Kreber can do the impossible. Dr. Kreber assisted us with a visa application on which we declared an exclusion period. INZ initially did not want to approve the application due to the said exclusion. Dr. Kreber however through a lot of research, case studies and additional documentation, managed to get the visa approved. He went through all the trouble and additional submissions, arguing the exclusion and submitting argument after argument, without charging any additional cost or giving up. He is truly professional, clear and to the point, responding to emails and queries day and night.

Thank you for all your hard work, we truly appreciate it Dr. Kreber!


We have used the services of Dr. Kreber twice now, and on both occasions we thoroughly enjoyed working with him. We would most definitely recommend his services. What appealed to us most was his level of professionalism in which he handled our affairs, how he provided valuable feedback in a timely manner, and how meticulously he looked at our documents.

Thank you Dr. Kreber for making both our Work visa and Residency visa applications stress free, for constantly having patience with us and for delivering a good quality service. We will definitely miss your regular emails, keeping us updated and in the loop during both applications. We hope that in the future we'll have the privilege of meeting up with you to thank you again, in person.


BK Immigration has assisted my family and I from day one with our Immigration Services to New Zealand. Without Bernhard and his wonderful, helpful, professional team this would not have been possible BK's patience in answering all my tedious questions has been appreciated. BK Immigration assisted with my Employment Contract, Family & Personal Visas and Work to Residence Visa.

Both Visa Applications were always received way ahead of prescribed time lines, which took an enormous amount of pressure off the family and I. I would recommend BK's services to any potential immigrant, great service at all times!


Our experience with Bernhard was excellent! He is highly efficient and detail-orientated and was able to guide us through our visa application process with incredible skill, wisdom and dedication. He made what could have been a very stressful process, easy and straightforward.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Bernhard and we would highly recommend his services.


The service and quality of services received from Bernhard Kreber Barrister was absolutely out of this world. I understood what was required from me at each step of the way and the “Check My Visa” site is extremely informative and easy to use. Even during peak season you managed to get my family Visa’s issued within a very reasonable time (quicker than the time indicated on the websites).

Thank you for your brilliant services, I would highly recommend your services to anyone requiring assistance with Visa application.

Thank you for always responding to my questions and requests in a timely and professional manner. I wish you and your company all the best for the future.


I had a hard time trying to get some proper information regarding my case. I tried in online forums, directly with Immigration New Zealand, with immigration consultants and other immigration lawyers.


Bernhard however was on point, clear and uncomplicated. He provided insights that went beyond the standard advice, making me feel more confident and informed about my case and providing me with the necessary information to take the next step.


Wow what an experience! My wife’s situation was a tricky one and with this being during Covid, hard lockdowns in South Africa made it a long wait. Our experience with Bernhard was amazing, he tells you exactly what to do at what times - never leaving you in the unknown. My wife got her Permanent Resident Visa for New Zealand with no issues except for the unexpected worldwide pandemic. Without Bernhard we would not be sitting with a Permanent Resident Visa for New Zealand. Thank you Bernhard, we really appreciate all your efforts. Regards, the Bolton family.


It has been an absolute privilege liaising with Bernhard on my work visa progress. He provided the very best advice along every step of the way, allowing the best possible outcome for me, leading to a successful visa application which has now been approved.

Thank you for all the hard work you put into this, I could not have asked for a higher quality of service, yours was top notch! Any questions I had on the matter were answered incredibly well, both in detail and a timely manner. Bernhard has been meticulously thorough and professional, and I would use his services again in a heartbeat. I wish him every success in the future.

Thank you again.


Bernhard assisted me in an Essential Skill Work Visa which was approved within less than 3 weeks of submission.

I was recommended to make use of his services from a friend whom he had also assisted and was very pleased with the outcome. Bernhard was quick to respond to every single one of my emails with clear and concise  information. He kept a tight grip on the timeline and was following up with me, rather than me chasing him up which I very much appreciated. Before Bernhard I was in touch with another lawyer whom I had to ‘beg’ for information, and when received was vague at best. Working with Bernhard was a breath of fresh air. I was always up to date with where things were at, what red flags I should be looking out for, exactly what the costs were (which I was nervous about never really having worked with lawyers before), what the next steps will be and what was needed from my side to get there soonest.

Thank you heaps for making this application process as painless as possible.


The most stressful period of my life Bernhard assisted me with open honest answers to all my questions, assisted to get answers from VFS, Bernhard contacted them direct to get response and our group application took only 12 days to be approved.

I am recommending all my friend to make us of Bernhard’s services. Truly a great immigration Barrister to have on your side.


We want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the first class service we received from Bernhard Kreber Barrister. Our process was one of joy knowing that an immigration lawyer with such knowledge is in control of our migration process. Everything was handled professionally and all the details were given, every little detail there were no doubt that they were always in control of the process.


Your office and staff are extremely professional, focused and compassionate. Myself and my family appreciate the friendliness that has made us feel very comfortable and looked after from the beginning up to the end.

We thank you for the effort and dedication to our visa application.


Bernhard was a true blessing throughout our whole immigration process. He was very diligent and thorough during the whole process, helping us every step of the way and provided us with the peace of mind that our family’s future was in the best hands possible. We’d highly recommend Bernhard to anyone looking to immigrate to NZ.


Thanks Bernhard for all the outstanding advice, the journey would have been a lot more difficult without your knowledge and support. It was a pleasure working with you. The Pretorius family will never forget this.


Bernhard Kreber handled my visitors’ and work visa and the visas of my family during our migration from South Africa to New Zealand. Throughout the whole process I never doubted that he would be able to get this done for my family. He was very meticulous when collecting the documents needed for this process. He doesn’t leave anything to chance and he has an excellent eye for spotting potential risks and managing them before they become actual problems. He was professional throughout the whole process and dealt very well with us being very needy clients. He recognized the urgency of certain matters and went above and beyond what is generally expected to finalize our visa applications. In the end, after he submitted our applications it only took 4 days for our visas to be issued. This meant that I could start  working earlier and my family could join me sooner, which was exactly what we needed at that stage.

Therefore, I am very thankful to him for delivering such excellent service


Dean and I would like to thank you for you valued and very patient handling of our Visa applications. We really appreciated the time and guidance you put in with assisting us through all of the forms, information needed to support the applications as well as endless patience with questions. Also for taking the time to explain procedures , timelines and requirement for properly submitted information for the visas. We recommend you to anyone who needs assistance with the process, which for us resulted in our work visas being processed. Dean, started work on the 11th of June.

Thank you once again for your guidance and advice through the process.


We have recently immigrated from SA to NZ and in this period of doing so, we worked with Bernhard Kreber, whom we feel was the best decision we could have ever made. He assisted us with our Visa’s for our family of 4. He is an outstanding Lawyer we have ever come across. His professionalism and kindness and extreme support was overall a 110%. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better.

Thank you kindly.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Bernhard Keber Barrister, for all the assistance he has given us during our application for immigration to New Zealand. Taking this huge step in our lives, started off as a very daunting task, with many curves along the way. In today’s day and age, it is of utmost importance, that you can put all your trust in a person, handling such a great part of one’s life goals. We as a family would like to express our gratitude to Bernhard, for the professional support and guidance we got from him during this process. Bernhard’s solid knowledge of the immigration law, helped us multiple times and he was more than willing to assist us at all times, in a calm, yet professional manner. The struggles one comes across in this process can be very stressful and Bernhard remained very patient and continued to inform us of the progress with the employer, to ensure a successful result. With Bernhard, we always felt that he was “on top of things” and I can gladly recommend him as a trustworthy and professional person.

Many thanks Bernhard for all your help in this important process of our lives. You are a star! Our dream has come true!!


This is just a short appreciation to Bernhard Kreber Barrister for helping us through our work visa application. He has been such a great help in making sure that our process ran smoothly and that he got everything from us before he sent anything so that we had no issues once processed.

We are thankful that we had him as our lawyer and for always keeping us updated.

He has extensive knowledge and experience in his field and answered all our questions with commendable honesty. We felt confident knowing that our applications were being handled by a professional, giving us the time to focus on our move without the added stress.

New Zealand is home now, and we can highly recommend Bernhard.


Our family is in the midst of immigrating to New Zealand and Dr. Kreber assisted us in providing good and proper advice in respect of all the relevant immigration matters. We furthermore utilised his services in handling and submitting our families’ visa applications on our behalf. Dr. Kreber is a very professional and meticulous lawyer whom has a wealth of knowledge on immigration matters. The level of service that we received from Dr. Kreber is of exceptional standard.

It is with great pleasure and utmost conviction that I can recommend Dr. Kreber as a service provider.


We as a family would hereby like to express our gratitude to Bernhard Kreber Barrister for taking an enormous amount of pressure off our shoulders. Thank you for your outstanding work in the successful submission of our visa application as part of our immigration process to NZ. Throughout the process, you clearly communicated the application requirements per the different type of visa’s applied for and ensured for no unforeseen surprises.

Thank you for your professionalism, patience and perseverance!


Bernhard Kreber has worked with my family and me over the last 9 months to completed and obtain our work permits. It's was testing at times with Bernhard asking for more and more documents of proof. It was well worth the effort. Once the applications were lodged there was no comeback from immigration asking for more of this or more of that. Bernhard answered all our questions in detail.

You won't be sorry when you use Bernhard Kreber for your immigration to New Zealand.


In September 2018, I and my husband decided on the very emotional decision to immigrate to New Zealand. We had to face the truth that the circumstances in South Africa is deterioting very fast, and as a mother and father we knew, we owe it to our to young children to make the move. We made contact with Immigration Migration, and were introduced to the New Zealand lawyer Dr.Bernhard Kreber. Ever since we were introduced to Bernhard, we were immediately informed what was needed from us as a family to get the process started. We started in a difficult time as the festive season was around the corner and we knew this might slow down the process, and sometimes we even took a chance to send an email (over the festive season) and we always received a response back the same day from Bernhard. What we really appreciated most is that Bernhard even responded to our queries while he was on leave, we thought it would only get answered when he will be back in the office. We as a family felt save that this person really do have our best interest at heart. Before it was time for the visas to be submitted, Bernhard made sure ALL paperwork was ready and acceptable before we made any payments for visas. By the time we submitted our family visas we knew that our paperwork is on New Zealand Immigration standard as it was checked by a professional and from a legal point of view acceptable. We as a family had peace of mind, and I could not imagine how families can do this without someone with a legal point of view assisting and checking everything, as this is your life and your family you are dealing with. Our visas came through even before the estimated time frame that was given by New Zealand Immigration and I am sure that is because we had the professional assistance from Bernhard. The communication through out the whole process and again the peace of mind took a lot of the stress of immigrating of our shoulders. We highly recommend Dr.Bernhard Kreber to anyone considering to immigrate. We will always be greatfull for the advice, support and all the time that was spent on us through out our process.

Thank you Bernhard, without you this journey would have been very difficult. You helped us achieve our dream.


We met Bernhard Kreber through an immigration agency.
He guided us step by step to obtain all the correct documentations for our working visas. Dr. Bernhard Kreber is prompt and professional with his services. He worked long hours to accommodate us in a different time zone.

We would recommend his services to anybody.
