2021 New Zealand Residency Visa - opening 1st December.
Following our last post we can now confirm that applications for the 2021 Resident Visa open on the 1st of December.
This is a one off residency opportunity for those migrants who due to the impact of Covid - 19 were left
in a large group of people already in the process of applying to work in New Zealand or to gain residency.
The process will operate under two phases. Phase 1 will include those people who were in New Zealand with an eligible work visa on the 29th of September 2021 and had already submitted a Skilled Migrant category application, or a Residence from Work application or a Skilled Migrant category expression of interest that included children 17 years and older.
If this doesn't apply to you, you will be in Phase 2 and will be able to apply after the 1st of march 2022.
To investigate your options for migrating to New Zealand we suggest you visit the Immigration New Zealand website where there is a constant supply of information around the impact of Covid – 19 and the ongoing change in immigration requirements.
