The Minister of Immigration has recently agreed to lapse visa applications that cannot be approved due to the border restrictions. INZ has decided to refund application fees and levies for applications that are being lapsed. INZ will also refund and return temporary visa applications received from people outside New Zealand after 10 August 2020, when offshore applications were suspended.

This means that around 50,000 temporary visa applications will be refunded (mainly visitor, student and work visa applications).
