The border is closed until 2021 because of Covid 21. When it re opens you could start with a tourist visa to visit. Otherwise your best application is to apply on the skill shortage list and apply for a job. That may be difficult, as again with Covid 19 affecting the New Zealand economy, there are many unemployed

Customer
I had a friend that applied through immigration online and he was given a two years visa through online..I was asked to fill my immigration adviser details on my form,that's why am seeking for help from a lawyer

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Using an immigration advisor is optional, but I can suggest names if you want. No one is getting visas at the moment.

Customer
I have finished filling the forms
I just need an immigration adviser to guide me through

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Customer

Is is because of Covid 19. No one can get a visa except in exceptional cases, for humanitarian reasons

Border closures and exceptions

The New Zealand border is currently closed to almost all travellers to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

The New Zealand border is closed

The New Zealand border is currently closed to almost all travellers wanting to travel to New Zealand by either air or sea.

There are some exceptions to the closure

There are 2 reasons why you might be allowed to travel to and enter New Zealand while the border is closed — either:

  • you qualify as someone to whom the border closure does not apply, or
  • we consider that you have a critical purpose for travel while the border is closed and grant you a visa which recognises this.

To gain approval to travel under one of these reasons, most people must:

  • submit a request to INZ
  • be invited to apply for a visa or variation of conditions, which if approved will allow them entry.

A small group of people do not need to seek approval before they travel, such as New Zealand citizens.

NOTE

The starting point for consideration is that the New Zealand border is closed for all but critical travel, and that protecting public health in New Zealand is paramount.

Customer

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

He can travel here and leave when the visa expires, but cannot come and go while the visa is still current
