The key way to ensure there is no delay to your application is to make sure your application is complete when you lodge it with Immigration New Zealand. If your application is not complete, it will fail our lodgement criteria and be returned to you.
Please use the checklists below to help you fill in your application form.
Note: When applying to travel over Christmas and New Year, please allow an extra month for processing. The checklists above advise the general processing times.
