2021 Resident Visa Applications Open From March 2022

If you are a work visa holder in New Zealand or a critical purpose visa holder, you may be eligible for residence under the 2021 Resident Visa scheme (announced by the Government late last year).

Those who had already applied for residence under the Skilled Migrant or Residence from Work categories, or submitted an expression of interest under the Skilled Migrant Category have been eligible to apply from 1 December 2021 (known as phase 1).

Soon all eligible work or critical purpose visa holders will be able to apply from 1 March 2022 (phase 2).

If you are considering applying for residence under the 2021 Resident Visa Category, and have not yet applied, now is the time to consider applying.  We can help to advise you about your eligibility and assist with the application process.

All applications must be submitted by 31 July 2022.

If you would like more information about your eligibility for this Residence Visa or would like help with submitting your application please let us know and we would be happy to help.
