Expression of Interest (EOI) Selection Process for the Parent Resident Visa

Expression of Interest (EOI) Selection Process for the Parent Resident Visa


On 14 February 2023, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) will select 1100 Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for the Parent Resident Visa Category, an increase from the 370 selected previously.

For more information regarding changes to the Parent Category, please click here.

In the previous EOI selection, many did not meet the application requirements.

  • The number of EOIs selected each quarter may be adjusted depending on data regarding approved visas.
  • February and May 2023 selections are only from those submitted before 12 October 2022 and will be chosen in date order; August 2023 selections include those after this date, which will be chosen by random ballot.

For information regarding when EOIs will be selected, please click here. It is important to ensure that all information in an EOI meets the requirements before selection takes place and update or withdraw if necessary using the relevant forms found on INZ’s website.

To update or withdraw their EOI, applicants must fill out a form linked on INZ’s website before selection takes place to reduce delays if they meet criteria; refunds may also be requested if withdrawn beforehand.
