VisaView for education providers

VisaView supports the use of eVisas for students who apply for their visa using Immigration Online.


All visas are recorded electronically in our system. When someone applies for their visa through Immigration Online, we may grant an eVisa (or a label-less visa) rather than fixing a physical label to their passport. The visa holder will be notified about their visa approval and can print out their visa record through their Immigration Online account.

eVisas are being progressively rolled out to student visa applicants both on and offshore.

Registering for VisaView

Education providers must nominate an account administrator who will register the provider with the VisaView system. Once we’ve verified that they are a genuine New Zealand education provider, the administrator will then be able to make queries in the system.

The account administrator can invite other people to use the system. All users will need to use a RealMe log-in to access VisaView, and they must agree to our terms and conditions of use.

VisaView system queries

Education providers can run a query on a prospective student's entitlement to study for them in New Zealand by entering the student’s passport number, nationality and family name. The VisaView system will advise whether or not the person can study with that provider and the conditions under which they may study.

The system can be used to query the immigration status of both international and domestic students. You can also query a student’s status whether or not they have a label in their passport. VisaView also allows education providers to confirm the status of work or visitor visa holders who are enrolling in short term courses. 

Login with RealMe

To access VisaView, you need a RealMe account. If you’ve created a RealMe account somewhere else, you can use it here too.
