New Zealand Entrepreneur Work Visa has two parts that make up a three-year work visa for entrepreneurs.
1) Start-up stage: If your application is approved, you will be issued a 12-month work visa that will allow you to purchase or start a business in New Zealand.

You can acquire the balance of your Entrepreneur Work Visa after proving to Immigration New Zealand that you've taken reasonable steps to develop and operate the intended business and that the money needed to do so has been moved to NZ.
