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.
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.
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.
If you have still not applied for the 2021 Resident Visa or have any questions or doubts after lodging your application, please do not hesitate to contact Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd at [email protected] or call us on +64 09 3790219
