As the lockdown in New Zealand continues, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) continues to provide processing related updates.
Currently, due to alert level restrictions some INZ staff members are working from home. From next week, some staff will return to most of the INZ offices to receive & process priority temporary visa application categories. Delays are to be expected.
Mail will be redirected to offices outside the Auckland region to ensure lodgment of applications.
Most staff members will continue working remotely and will process online applications. INZ encourages applicants to use online channels whenever possible.
The new form to apply for a Variation of Conditions of a work visa is now available online.
If a VOC paper application was sent before the nationwide Alert level 4 lockdown started and was not acknowledged with an email, in that case, you can now submit a new VOC application online.

Visa applicants can also register for Voice Identification (Voice ID) service which helps protect privacy and save time on calls.
