I emailed him with just a brief details, seeking advise, his reply was immediate. I quickly googled him and was not difficult to find him, at times you wonder with all the scammers around, but he is genuine and Licensed. The best part dealing with him is his flexibility of operating hours, coz. Where I stay is like - 10 hours from New Zealand, initially I thought it would be difficult to coordinate, but he is reachable through out the day& night.
My process was smooth and stress free as I totally got dependent on him, I must say choosing his advice was not a mistake. My Visa got approved.

I was facing some relationship problems which could had led my partner from withdrawing her support for my work visa under partnership category.
I heard about Atesh from one of his Radio advertisements and did some research on his Website. After discussing my situation with him, Atesh was able to provide me with a straight forward solution and assisted me with the application for work visa. My work visa was approved for a three-year period.
After getting a positive result, I then requested Atesh to provide me assistance with my resident visa under the Skilled Migrant Category. He did submit my application and within five months time period, I received a call from ASIC in the morning to advise me that my resident visa was approved. I was over the moon to hear this great news and it was a very pleasant experience for me.
I would definitely recommend Atesh to any of my friends to use his consultancy services.
I felt very comfortable all the way as he was a nice and easy person to deal with. I was very pleased for I could deal with him at my own pace and could see him after work.

I first came to New Zealand on a Visitor Visa. I was fortunately able to secure a job offer here in New Zealand. I was then looking for immigration advisers for the guidance. Through reference, I contacted Atesh and made an appointment last year. He handled my application with great care and helped me to understand the policies. My work visa got approved for three years. I then did my Variation of Conditions (VOC) on work visa. As soon as my VOC was approved, Atesh suggested me to apply for Resident Visa under Skilled Migrant Category. He explained me the steps involved in detail. I am glad I listened to him and asked for his assistance. He then did my Expression of Interest and when I received Invitation to Apply, he applied for my Resident Visa. This has been approved recently. Me and my wife are really thankful to Atesh for guiding us correctly. Without him it would not be possible with ease.
All we wish to Atesh and his company is to maintain their reputation and work ethics. Thank you and may god bless you.
Ashneil and Shaleen Kumar (Fiji)
I have known Atesh for nearly two years now. I first consulted him for my Post-Study Work Visa. Later he assisted me for Work Visa under Essential Skills. He is very transparent in his work. He is full of humour as well as fully dedicated to his service. I usually met him after office hours and on weekends and he always offered me appointment times that were convenient to me.
I did my Resident Visa under Skilled Migrant Category last year and this has been approved within six months. This has left me with no doubt that ASIC is one of the best immigration consulting company. They are doing a remarkable job and I always trust them. They are great people providing an extraordinary service.
Manpreet Singh (India)
I am proud to provide feedback about Atesh, our Immigration Adviser. My partner had applied for a work visa under graduate work experience. After a week, my partner and I came to see Atesh for the first time. He helped us to withdraw my application and helped us apply for a visitor visa instead. Atesh even took the time to visit my partner to get documents signed when she did not have transport. At the end of the day my partner got a 3-month visitor visa. Atesh then assisted her in obtaining herself a student visa.
After her studies, we consulted Atesh to apply for Work Visa under Partnership. He e-mailed us the checklist of all the necessary documents. We followed his instructions and guidance. I have seen transparency and honesty in his work and that has built a trust on him. Yay!! Tina got the Work Visa under Partnership for one year.
Tina applied for residence visa under partnership and this is also approved. The credit goes to the continuous support and help we received from ASIC team . Tina and I heartily want to say thank you ASIC and wishing you a great success in the coming years.
Thi Minh Hoang (Tina) Tran and Henry Ha (Vietnam)
I am really impressed with ASIC service. They have great potential and knowledge on what they provide. Atesh gave me professional advice and the checklist of required documents for my application at the very first meeting. This has helped me to organise everything in time and apply for my visa.
It is their effortless help and guidance that I got my visa approved over three years prior to expiry of my visa. Best wishes to ASIC. Keep the good work.
Avishal Asneil Din (Fiji)
We were looking for a reliable immigration adviser and my husband got Atesh’s contact from Google. We contacted him and felt we can trust him. He had arranged an appointment according to our convenience mostly in the evenings. In our first meeting, he explained us all the immigration instructions with no fees, which we all know no one does. He provided us the checklist of documents to be submitted. Finally, I got my Work visa approved. Besides being a professional immigration adviser, Atesh is a genuine and down to earth person. Thank you for the service and good luck to ASIC.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Atesh Narayan for the efforts that he put in to assist Jonathan obtain a visitor visa and later a work visa. Although the case officer had made life difficult for us in terms of questioning about a technicality about culturally arranged marriages, Atesh was very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us in our pre-interview preparations. The great thing about Atesh is that he has continued to keep in contact with our family and has helped us in every way possible. He has even seen us after hours through appointment times convenient to us.

I am Abhijit Mallik from Qatar and I had applied for my student visa for New Zealand twice. Each time it got declined. This was really frustrating. Fortunately, my friend referred me Atesh’s details stating that he is a genuine and qualified immigration adviser and insisted me to contact him at the earliest possible convenience. I am happy to recommend ASIC to everyone who is looking for a competent immigration adviser. I emailed Atesh with all my queries and situation. I was so surprised with the quick response. I have also contacted Atesh through phone and skype.
In every step, ASIC has guided me and provided me all their support. They kept on updating me about my visa application. I really do appreciate the service provided by the team. Even when I got a PPI letter from Immigration New Zealand, Atesh dealt with it professionally. I am so happy that with the timeless effort and Atesh’s professional experience, my student visa was approved. I am now in New Zealand. We further consulted ASIC for my wife and children’ visa process. Their visas too approved.
A big Cheers to Atesh and the team. Keep on doing the good work.

I would like to express my hearty thanks to Atesh for assisting me in my Domestic Violence case. Initially, I had consulted a commercial lawyer to deal with my application. However, she kept my file for two months and failed to lodge it for me.
Through a friend of mine, I consulted Atesh who assisted me in my work visa and resident visa applications. Atesh also helped me to prepare for my final interview and accompanied me to the interview at the Henderson Branch of Immigration New Zealand. I was very surprised to get an approval prior to the expiry of my visa. I was also facing some difficulties at the border in Nadi International Airport and Atesh assisted me to return to New Zealand. This was when I had travelled to visit my sick mum in Fiji.
With his continued support, I was granted a residence visa along with my son and daughter. We are very delighted with the result and very thankful for Atesh’s guidance and experience. We wish Atesh all the success in his business.
Satya Wati (Fiji)
I had done my work visa application by myself and it got declined. Actually my employer had failed to understand the immigration instructions which required him to provide genuine attempt to recruit a New Zealand citizen or resident for the position. My brother-in-law knows Atesh as a soccer player and Licensed Immigration Adviser. He introduced me to Atesh one day before the visa expiry date.
Although Atesh saw me at around 5:00 pm in the evening, he completed my online application within couple of hours and ensured that I got my interim visa to maintain my lawful status in New Zealand. In the meanwhile, ASIC did my wife and two children Section 61 applications. With a least expectation, in a week time, all our applications got approved for three months’ period. We are so elated with the prompt service and successful outcome of our applications. I would be doing our work and visitor visa applications and with no doubt ASIC assistance is all we want. The honesty and flexibility ASIC has showed us we will always recommend them to anyone seeking accurate immigration advice from a reliable immigration adviser with integrity.

It gives me immense pleasure to write this testimonial for Atesh whom I knew as a classmate and then an Immigration adviser.
Something very different about Atesh is that his work is very transparent. He is very reliable, honest and gives full dedication to the work assigned. Another best part we found is that Atesh is available for meetings almost any time of the day, even after regular office hours which makes it very convenient to deal with him.
With his support and guidance, we got our residence in a very short time. We sincerely thank Atesh for being a good and trustworthy adviser and recommend everyone to go along with him.
Our employee, Chairee Tarakun became unlawful due to some misunderstanding in our part in providing Immigration New Zealand with his employment information along with not providing them with a copy of his Summary of Earnings over a certain period of time.
We consulted Atesh who asked us to provide all the information and eventually got his unlawful status restored within two weeks. He went out of his way to get my employees visa label issued at the Henderson Branch. I am a manager of Na NaThai Restaurant and will surely recommend my staff as well as my colleagues to use Auckland South Immigration Consultants Limited for their reliable and honest service.

I am very pleased to inform you that Atesh gave me a very professional and an exceptional service. He went out of his way and left no stone unturned in assisting me. My visa application took only ten days. He was very efficient and he kept me informed in every step of the way. From the start, his openness, honesty and attitude was great. Atesh went over and above what I expected of him and was successful in getting my visa in time to commence my employment. He even took his time to visit my employer in North Shore to discuss my situation and complete the relevant documents. I would highly recommend Auckland South Immigration Consultants, for anyone looking for an Immigration Adviser with integrity. Thanks Atesh.
Graham Cooper (UK
I have contacted Atesh in September 2015 after I was referred to him through a family friend. At that time, I was on a visitor visa to holiday and sightsee most of New Zealand. Atesh contacted a potential employer for me and through his efforts, I managed to obtain a one-year work visa. In July 2016, I contacted him again after I found a new employer. Atesh immediately got all my documents sorted and liaised with my new employer. He submitted my work visa application on 31 July 2016 and it got approved for three years in a matter of three days’ time.
I am very excited and thankful to ASIC team for their cooperation and support in achieving this outcome in a few days’ time. One thing that really impressed me was that I was given all my appointments in the evenings. ASIC has a great potential and effort. The team has not left any stone unturned to assist me to get my application successful.
You guys are awesome and thank you for a job well done. I will surely refer my family and friends to ASIC for accurate immigration advice from a qualified professional

Atesh is very well known in our Fiji-Indian Community for his professionalism, friendliness, and down to earth nature. One of my friends introduced him to me when I was looking for immigration advice. He explained me the immigration rules and regulations.
He even helped me and my employer for organizing all the documents necessary for my application. He discussed with me each and everything in detail. He usually makes an appointment according to his client’s convenience and I made most of my appointment in the evenings which he always welcomed.
