Singapore Airlines industry partnership Monday, 22 August 2016

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Singapore Airlines.

Singapore Airlines’ PPS Club, KrisFlyer Elite Gold and Elite Silver members are now eligible to receive streamlined visa processing from INZ, making it even easier for them to apply for a New Zealand visitor visa.  
Singapore Airlines currently operates direct flights from Singapore to Christchurch and Auckland and from 20 September will commence flight services to Wellington, via Canberra.
The new arrangement applies to all eligible Singapore Airlines’ PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite members, whether they are flying to Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington.
All applicants will still need to meet health and character requirements. INZ has worked with Singapore Airlines to put a robust process in place to ensure that all visa applicants who submit visa applications under these streamlined arrangements meet the necessary requirements.
