INZ Is Launching Improved Immigration Online On 31 January, 2022

Immigration New Zealand

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) announced that on January 31, 2022, it would launch the improved Immigration Online systems. You can watch a recorded version of the webinar by INZ here.

Even Visitor Visas can be applied for using the improved Immigration Online system starting January 31, 2022 (Critical Purpose Visitor Visa are excluded for now).

Throughout 2022, more visa types will begin to shift to the upgraded system. However, paper applications will continue to be available.

Any external factors that could influence this timeline, such as changes to COVID-19 alert levels, will be checked regularly. For more information on the improvements to the Immigration Online system, please visit the INZ website.

Border Settings

Recently, the New Zealand Government announced that its borders will gradually open beginning in early 2022. Official communication of the same is available on the Beehive website.

It’s vital to know that not all foreign nationals will be eligible to enter New Zealand from April 30, 2022. However, NZ Government websites are best to stay updated with changes when they happen.

Due to COVID-19 travel limitations, temporary visa applications from outside New Zealand or a quarantine-free travel zone are still suspended. The INZ website has detailed information about border restrictions relating to COVID-19.

If you have 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 on +64 09 3790219. Our experienced team of Licensed Immigration Advisers will be happy to guide you.
