Education agent performance data

Approval rate data for education agents, including licensed and exempt advisers, recruiting students from the Viet Nam, Philippine and India markets.

Education agents (including licensed immigration advisers (LIAs) and exempt advisers/agents) are an important part of New Zealand’s international education system. The below reports show the student visa approval rates and application volume (range) for education agents operating in the Viet Nam, Philippine and India student markets.

Notes on these reports:

  • Education agent approval rates are based on offshore applications for fee paying and scholarship student visas. An offshore application is one that is tendered outside of New Zealand.
  • Each of these reports includes two tabs:
    • Tab one includes applications completed 1 January–30 June 2018 (six months).
    • Tab two includes applications decided and completed 1 January–31 December 2017.
  • The Viet Nam report is limited to education agents with five or more student visa applications completed during the above-stated time periods. The Philippine and India reports are limited to education agents with 10 or more student visa applications completed during the above-stated time periods.
  • The data does not include applications that were withdrawn, lapsed, or declined on medical grounds.
  • The fourth column indicates if the agency has one or more licensed immigration adviser associated with it.


These reports will next be updated in January 2019.
