New Zealand’s immigration instructions are meant to be transparent, but they are not as clear as they should be. The instructions are subject to different interpretations and this can sometimes result in confusion. Thousands of applications are rejected every year, due to the frequently changing immigration instructions and the differing interpretations of case officers on similar types of applications. It requires a skilled adviser to take up the challenge and argue the case on its merit.
In several cases it has been found, that Expressions of Interest (EOI) lodged under the Skilled Migrant Category are assessed as not satisfying immigration instructions and do not progress to a residence application stage. This was also the case with Family Parent Tier 1 category EOI’s that were being processed. Although the parent category has been suspended EOI’s are still being accepted into the pool. There is no guarantee when, or if these, will ever be selected in their present form. The chances of further changes are likely and this could affect the outcome of an expression of interest that is already in the pool. If your expression of interest is one of those pending an outcome, you will need to get sound advice on how you can proceed. We would like you to consider ‘All About Immigration’ for all your immediate and future needs.
The Immigration Protection Tribunal (IPT), which is an independent judicial body, decides on appeals made against rejected residence applications. They have the power to overturn decisions made by Immigration New Zealand. The IPT has overturned several hundred decisions over the past few years, which indicates that immigration officers make mistakes. The IPT uses its power to overturn incorrect decisions made by immigration officers, this happens frequently and therefore you must exercise your right to appeal.
If you have a declined application and you feel you have not been treated fairly. If you feel a mistake has been made and you want to appeal the decision, come to us, we will advise you of the best course forward. If we believe there is merit in making an IPT appeal we will make a robust case for you to help you fight the declined decision.
If you submitted an application on your own to Immigration New Zealand and they have sent you a Potentially Prejudicial Information (PPI) letter, raising concerns on your application, come to us, we will tell you if we can help you and show you the best way forward.
It is in the best interests of the applicants that they are, at the outset, informed about their eligibility for a New Zealand immigration visa. There can often be many immigration avenues to fulfill the same goal of obtaining residence in New Zealand. Every immigration application has an element of risk, which needs to be identified clearly and discussed beforehand.
After satisfying the required criteria, the next important step is the planning and coordination of the application process within the specified deadlines, which become applicable at the start of this process. We always aim to ‘get it right the first time’.
To understand which avenue is available to you and how your objective to study, work or reside in New Zealand can be reached is the first step of the immigration process. We provide accurate assessment services to help you understand what the requirements are, in your individual case and we will advise you, if your application does not meet the required criteria.
