New Zealand changes visa process center for family residence applications

It is now official that from 10 October, all the applications regarding family residence will be addressed from Auckland, New Zealand. Previously these applications were processed through London visa application center at the New Zealand London area office.

The question that comes to your mind is what re the outcome or effect of it, well here is the answer.

The process has been more fast track than the previous one where the office in London had to send documents to New Zealand and then comeback after processing but now the hierarchy has been cut, and processing is fast.

The changes do not affect any specific category. Family having the dependent child or a partner residence application will be accepted accordingly. Same is the case for Parent category residences applications.

Applications should be sent to the following address.

By post, the address is given below:

Immigration New Zealand

  • PO Box 76895, Manukau City 2241, Auckland, New Zealand

Physical address for courier delivery only, address is given below:

Immigration New Zealand

  • Level 3, 20 Amersham Way, Manukau 2104, Auckland, New Zealand

We would highly recommend you to use the above-mentioned address when sending you application. Also, make a copy of it before sending it the address for future assistance. FR application will be processed at Manukau area office. Licensed immigration officers will look into your application as per requirements. From 10 October onwards you should send your application to the above-mentioned addresses.

Important note: if you submit your application to London visa center before 10 of October, but somehow it comes late after the date then your application will be considered. But you expect it to arrive late; then you send it directly to New Zealand office.

In case your application gets an approval then you should submit your passport to your nearest VAC with a processing fee.
