Immigration advisers, employers, and education agents and providers can use Immigration Online to apply for visas on behalf of applicants.

Note

From late 2021, Immigration New Zealand will start delivering enhancements to its Immigration Online system.

Enhancements to Immigration Online

Immigration advisers and education agents

Immigration advisers and education agents can submit applications through the Immigration Online system on behalf of their customers.

Employers and education providers

If you are an employer or education provider who is not licensed or exempt from licensing, you may help applicants to fill out the application form if it is part of your job to do so.

You can submit the completed form online but you are not allowed to provide immigration advice. For more information on this, see the Immigration Advisers Authority website.

To apply on behalf of someone, you should create an Immigration Online account. You must create your own New Zealand Government ‘RealMe’ login to use this service.
