The United Arab Emirates (UAE) office of Immigration New Zealand is located in Dubai.
The Dubai Office receives applications for, visitor, work, student and family residence 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.
Due to the high volume of applications, we recommend you lodge your application early to help ensure it is processed in time for your planned travel. You should not make irreversible travel plans before having your visa issued. Any bookings made are made at the risk of the applicant.
Note: Due to a large number of applications as well as Christmas holidays, we are not able to guarantee visa processing if your application is received between 05 December 2014 and 17 January 2015. If you need to travel over this time, your application must be fully lodged with the Visa Application Centre before 05 December 2014
