INZ Makes Amendment For Applicants With HIV Infection

INZ Makes Amendment For Applicants With HIV Infection

INZ Update

The Immigration New Zealand (INZ) and the Ministry of Health will no longer consider the cost of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) treatment to be significant.

As a result, HIV infection has been removed from the list of high-cost health conditions used to evaluate Resident Visa applications by INZ.

The proposal to update the list was backed by PHARMAC, the National HIV and AIDS Forum, UNAIDS, and the New Zealand AIDS Foundation.

INZ will continue to assess the medical conditions of HIV positive applicants, but will not automatically conclude that they do not have an acceptable standard of health, which could result in a visa application being denied.

If you have any queries or require assistance regarding the above information, please do not hesitate to contact Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd. at contact@nzimmigration.info or call +64 09 3790219. Our experienced team of Licensed Immigration Advisers will be happy to guide you.
