I recently posted on the visa fraud in New Zealand involving Indian education agents.

Indian paper, the Deccan Chronicle is now reporting that Immigration New Zealand has confirmed that eight education agents were allegedly involved in the visa fraud:

  1. Kiwi Overseas Services – website down for ‘maintenance’ but still active on Facebook
  2. Sunrise Overseas Educational Consultants – website down.
  3. IVY Overseas – website up but content appears to have been removed? Still active on Facebook.
  4. FIFO Overseas – we can’t be sure about the web address for this agent.
  5. Leaf Educational Services – website down. Facebook page has not been updated for some time.
  6. AR Overseas Consultants  – website down.
  7. Storm Group – website up
  8. V & U Intellect Consultants – website up.

If one or more of these agents acts for your institution you should consider getting in touch with them to obtain more information on the allegations.
