What is the first step to starting the New Zealand Investor 1 (Plus) application process?

I hope to immigrate to New Zealand from China and I, along with my family, would like to begin speaking with professionals and learn how to move forward.

    If you are interested in applying for an Investor 1 visa, you can start collecting all required information and documentation for the application. The Investor 1 category does not have an Expression of Interest stage like the Investor 2 category, so the application needs to be accompanied by supporting documents right away. Information required for the application includes: (1) Personal details for all family members included in the application (incl. birth certificates); (2) Partnership evidence; (3) Police certificates for all family members 17 years of age or older; (4) Medical records for all family members (must not be older than 3 months at the time the application is lodged (this is often one of the last things to add to the application); (5) Evidence of ownership of the funds; (6) Evidence showing how the funds have been acquired, and that they have been acquired legally.
