How can I report someone to the immigration authorities?

To report an overstayer or someone breaching their visa conditions (working without a visa, providing fraudulent information to immigration, and so on), please complete and submit our online query form with as much information as possible about the person you wish to report.

If you have access to their name, date of birth, country of origin, passport or client numbers, address, personal description, and so on, it is hugely helpful to our investigators.

An anonymous report will then be forwarded to our Compliance team if we can locate the file of the person you are reporting through the information provided.

We take these reports very seriously and appreciate your information.

Terminating enrolment of a student

If you want to advise Immigration New Zealand that a student previously enrolled with your education institute/provider has now had their enrolment terminated, you should complete and submit an online Termination of Enrolment form. Please select the form for your particular region from the list, and we will process it accordingly.

Terminating employment of a worker

A person who holds a visa to work for a specific business may be in breach of their visa conditions by remaining in New Zealand after that employment has ended.

If you wish to inform us of a worker who held a visa to work specifically for your business and who has left that employment before the expiry of their visa, you can email us.

Further information is available on our website.
