If applications are received after this date, then INZ may not be able to process your application in December due to New Zealand holidays.

The Dubai Office receives applications for, visitor, work, and student categories from the following countries.
Residents of the countries above who wish to apply for a visa to live in New Zealand under our business or skilled migrant categories will need to lodge their application with our London Office.
If you are travelling on a passport from Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, or UAE you can visit New Zealand for three months without a visa. However, you will need to apply for a visa if you want to work or study in New Zealand.
