We will prioritise temporary entry visas, including student and post-study visas, and residence visas for applicants in New Zealand.
COVID 19 - Key Updates I Visa processing
We are unable to confirm processing timeframes for any visa categories at this time.
If you need to submit a new visa application, it is recommended that you submit an online application where you can as paper based application processing will be delayed.
If you are a student in New Zealand applying for another student visa you must provide a tuition fee receipt and proof of NZD $15,000 of funds per year (pro-rata for courses under 36 weeks). It is vitally important you are able to support yourself financially while in New Zealand. Your home country’s embassy in New Zealand may be able to offer support.
