Health Standards for Residence Visa Applicants

Health Standards for Residence Visa Applicants

To be granted residence in New Zealand, most applicants must have an acceptable standard of health (ASH). This essentially means that an applicant must not have a health condition that is likely to impose significant costs or demands on New Zealand’s health services.

The prior threshold for determining whether health conditions impose significant costs was $41,000, over:

  • five years, or
  • the predicted course of the condition.

From 2 September 2022, the threshold for determining conditions that may impose significant health costs has increased from $41,000 to $81,000.

Residence applications lodged before 4 September 2022 will be assessed at the previous cost threshold of $41,000. Applicants may be considered for medical waivers on a case-by-case basis.
