We are a busy and dynamic workplace with 20 staff that aims to deliver fast and professional service to people planning on living, working, studying in or visiting New Zealand.
INZ Manila processes temporary entry visa applications, including visitor, student, work, and transit visas, for all applicants in the Philippines, Palau and Taiwan. We also process applications for transfers of resident visas, second/subsequent resident visas and permanent resident visas.
Applications made within the Philippines are received through the VIA Centres in Manila and Cebu whereas applications from Taiwan are accepted at the VAC in Taipei.
In order for you to receive timely and positive processing of your application, it is very important that you pay close attention to the information we have posted on our branch webpages, such as the lodgement requirements and checklists, and visa processing timeframes.
