Submitting Supporting Documents for the 2021 Resident Visa

Submitting Supporting Documents for the 2021 Resident Visa

The 2021 Resident Visa has generated a lot of curiosity & excitement amongst migrants in New Zealand since its announcement last September. Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is using the enhanced Immigration Online System for people applying for the new Resident Visa.

INZ has now announced the details of the process that will be followed to request documents from applicants, which will constitute sending an email to the applicant/ LIA when application processing commences informing what evidence and documents an applicant need to provide.

The supporting documents page in the online account will show which documents are required for the assessment of your application to continue.

Once the documents are submitted, INZ will continue to process the application. They will email if further information is required.

Documents you will need to supply

You will need to supply a copy of the bio page of your passport or travel document for yourself and any family members included in the application.

You will also need to supply documents based on the criteria you have applied under – settled, skilled or scarce.

Settled criteria:

  • Evidence of your employment (optional)
  • Evidence of your remuneration (optional)

Skilled criteria:

  • Evidence of your employment (mandatory). This must be an employment agreement or letter from the employer stating your pay and hours. It must show your pay and hours at the time you applied as well as on 29 September 2021
  • Evidence of your remuneration (mandatory). This must be a full bank statement or a current payslip or a summary of income from Inland Revenue.
  • Evidence of COVID-related impacts (optional – if your pay rate or hours of work have been impacted by COVID-19)

Scarce criteria:

  • Evidence of your employment (mandatory). This must be an employment agreement or a letter from the employer confirming your job and hours. It must show your job and hours at the time you applied as well as on 29 September 2021.
  • Evidence of your remuneration (optional)
  • Evidence of occupational registration (optional – if your job requires registration. If we haven’t seen evidence of your registration in a previous application, then you must provide it.)
  • Evidence of COVID-related impacts (if your pay rate or hours of work have been impacted by COVID-19)

Critical Purpose criteria

  • Evidence of occupational registration (if your Critical Purpose Visa was granted for the purpose of completing a Nursing Competency Assessment Programme)

In addition to the above, you may be required to submit other documents as well such as evidence of previous visa refusals, military service or exemption records, relationship-based documents etc.

The important thing to remember is to ensure that the documents you submit are sufficient and accurate to demonstrate that you meet the instruction required for the specific criteria that you have applied under.
