In January 2020, Chinese authorities confirmed a new type of coronavirus. The New Zealand government is closely monitoring the situation and following guidance from the World Health Organization.
 
The New Zealand Government has now made the decision that any foreign travellers who have left or transited through mainland China after 2 February 2020 will be refused entry to New Zealand. All travellers currently in transit to New Zealand on 2 February 2020 will be subject to enhanced screening on arrival but, pending clearance, will be granted entry to New Zealand. This measure does not apply to flights to and from Hong Kong at this time.
 
This decision to refuse entry does not apply to New Zealand citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family, who will still be able to come to New Zealand. Australian citizens and permanent residents are also excluded if they ordinarily reside in New Zealand. The decision to restrict travel will be in place for up to 14 days and will be reviewed every 48 hours.
 
Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is working with other government agencies to ensure a whole-of-government approach is being taken to manage this evolving situation. INZ’s Beijing office remains temporarily closed in line with the Chinese Government’s decision to close schools and businesses as part of their ongoing management of coronavirus.
 
It is likely that there will be some impact on visa processing times as a result of the temporary closure of the Beijing office. However, INZ is committed to minimising the impact on processing times as much as possible.
 
We understand that Licensed Advisers and Immigration lawyers may have other questions or wish to clarify aspects of the coronavirus restrictions, and that other industry bodies are similarly affected. INZ will be updating information and providing Q&A as the situation evolves.

If anu questions or in doubt, please call us

2020年1月,中国当局确认了一种新型冠状病毒。新西兰政府正在密切监视局势,并遵循世界卫生组织的指导。

新西兰政府现已做出决定,将拒绝在2020年2月2日之后离开或过境中国大陆的任何外国旅客入境新西兰。目前所有在2020年2月2日过境新西兰的旅行者都将在到达时接受更严格的检查,但在等待通关之前,将被允许入境新西兰。此措施目前不适用于往返香港的航班。

拒绝入境的决定不适用于仍可以来新西兰的新西兰公民,永久居民及其直系亲属。如果澳大利亚公民和永久居民通常居住在新西兰,则也被排除在外。限制旅行的决定将持续14天,并且每48小时将进行审查。

新西兰移民局(INZ)正在与其他政府机构合作,以确保采用整体政府方法来应对这种不断发展的情况。根据中国政府关闭学校和企业的决定,作为其日常管理冠状病毒的一部分,INZ北京办事处暂时关闭。

北京办事处的临时关闭可能会对签证的处理时间产生一些影响。但是,INZ致力于尽可能减少对处理时间的影响。

我们了解到,持牌顾问和移民律师可能还有其他问题,或者希望澄清冠状病毒限制的各个方面,其他行业机构也受到类似影响。随着形势的发展,INZ将更新信息并提供问答。

IPT Decisions

The quality of decisions from INZ appear to decrease! Please refer to the Annual Report from the IPT for 2017 where on average 33% of Appeals with the IPT is allowed! A news paper article in 1 NEWS NOW dated 21/02/2019 confirms that four out of every ten appeals against INZ are upheld! That is an increase from 33% to now 40% of appeals being allowed or upheld against INZ!
