The NZ Government has extended the suspension of visa processing for most individuals who are outside New Zealand until at least 5th August 2022. This applies unless they meet the current border exception criteria or an in Covid-19 quarantine-free travel zone. The suspension can be lifted, however, if the border restrictions change.
Immigration New Zealand will continue to process visas for applicants who have been granted a border exception. This includes critical health workers and partners of New Zealanders.
