E7.15 Potentially prejudicial information

In accordance with the principles of fairness and natural justice set out in the Administration chapter (see A1), applicants will be given the opportunity to comment before a decision is made on the basis of any potentially prejudicial information (PPI).

E7.15.1 Applicants outside New Zealand

For the purpose of assessing an application for a temporary entry class visa from an applicant who is outside New Zealand, PPI is factual information or material that:

  1. was not obtained from the applicant or the applicant’s authorised representative or agent; and
  2. is not publicly available, or that the applicant is not necessarily aware of; and
  3. will or may adversely affect the outcome of an application; and
  4. the applicant has not previously had an opportunity to comment on.

Note: The submission of false or misleading information by an applicant or their agent is not potentially prejudicial information as that information has been obtained from the applicant or their agent.

E7.15.5 Applicants in New Zealand

For the purpose of assessing an application for a temporary entry class visa from an applicant who is in New Zealand, PPI is factual information or material that will or may adversely affect the outcome of an application.
