Resettlement of Afghan Nationals in New Zealand

Immigration Advisers

Since the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban earlier this week, Afghan nationals are desperately trying to leave the country to escape the terror & atrocities that will befall them.

The New Zealand Government has announced a resettlement plan for Afghan nationals who have assisted the New Zealand Defence Force and other government agencies during New Zealand’s deployment to Afghanistan. The immediate family members of these Afghan nationals– partners & dependent children, will also be considered.

Afghan nations need to meet some criteria to be eligible for resettlement in New Zealand. These include:

  • Worked directly with the New Zealand Defence Force, New Zealand police, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade or any other New Zealand agencies in Afghanistan or were employed by third parties who worked alongside these agencies. This will need to be verified by those agencies. OR
  • Provided material assistance during the inquiry Operation Burnham and can be verified by relevant parties AND
  • There are reasonable grounds to believe that the safety or well-being of the individual or their immediate family is at risk because of their association with New Zealand in Afghanistan and no other partner government will bear greater responsibility for their welfare.
