The updated form is:
When a sponsor or supporting partner requires a third party to help them complete the Sponsor or Supporting Partner form, this form serves as a certification that they provided them with permission. It will be submitted together with their online Sponsorship or Supporting Partner form.
If a person does not want to submit their bank statements, pay slips or a letter from their employer to demonstrate they have adequate finances to support an applicant, they can utilize this form instead. The form is now a separate document that they can give to the bank, and which must be returned with an official bank stamp. The form must be submitted together with their online Sponsorship or Supporting Partner form.

Besides the above, the INZ 1200 – Additional Information form has also been updated, though it is not a part of ADEPT. The ethnicity and religion questions have been removed as a result of the modifications. This form will also be in use from 31 January 2022.
The old version of the forms INZ 1244 and INZ 1200 will be accepted by Immigration New Zealand until 31 May 2022.
