E2.65 Ban on the grant of visas to leading members of the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) including Serbia and their supporters
- New Zealand has taken action in respect of leading citizens of the FRY and Serbia, being persons closely aligned with the regime of Slobodan Milosevic whose activities support Slobodan Milosevic or whose actions are presumed to provide support (including members of his immediate family), and who are named on the lists of such persons held by INZ and updated from time to time.
- Ordinarily, none of the persons named on the lists held by INZ may be granted a visa (including a transit visa) or entry permission.
- Where special circumstances exist (supported by cogent and reliable evidence) INZ may nonetheless grant a visa and entry permission, to a person named on the lists.
- The decision to grant a visa to a person named on the lists is limited to immigration officers with Schedule 1-3 delegations (see A15.5).
