Back from being away.... sorry for that.

This month quite some changes in the Immigration instruction;

  1. The family tier 1 application for parents is temporarily closed for 2 years. More information here. No use to lodge a new application as it will not be processed, suggest to sit it out when you have no alternatives and lodgea reaisence application in about 2 years. It is quite interesting to note that NZ Statisticscame out this month stating that New Zealand population is expected to get a whoile lot older in the next few decades. Read up about that here.
  2. English language requirements have been changed and this will have an immediate impact on the Skilled Migrant Category. Read up on this here
  3. The biggest change affecting a lot of student and work visa holders and possible immigrants under the SMC is the change of points from 100 - 140+ to now only 160+ points!! More information here. These points may change from time to time and this is the first major change since the start of the SMC. But it is one with a lot of impact; the number of students planning to come to NZ to study in the hope to find a job and then apply for residency will dramatically decrease, the number of people on work visas, that before the change would be eligible for residency, will decrease enormous. What does that meanfor employers? And what does it mean for the image of the NZ Immigration? Spending millions of dollars trying to make it work and than breaking it down in one day!! Tax dollars well spend!

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!
