Procedure to Confirm and Transfer a Residence Class Visa!

Here is the procedure as to how to confirm and transfer a New Zealand residence class visa:

Endorsement of applicants’ residence status in his/her passport

  • Applicants in order to have their NZ residence status endorsed in their passport are required to file an application with the Application for Transfer or Confirmation for a Visa Form (INZ 1023). After filling up the form, it must be lodged at the immigration office, along with the following:
        1. Passport or the certificate of identity; AND
        2. Previous/expired passport, on whomever it is applicable. The same applies to a certificate of identity as well.
        3. Evidence supporting the fact that an applicant is holding or deemed to hold a NZ residence class visa.
      4. Application fee, if applies.
  • When an applicant is not in a position to support his/her lawful residence status, the immigration officer may look for a record of the applicant’s with Immigration New Zealand. If any such record exists, the officer proceeds further with the process.

Confirmation of residence status

  • If applicants wish to have written confirmation of the date when their NZ residence was originally granted, they must lodge a request in written to the concerned INZ branch/department.
  • The written confirmation of the date when residence was originally granted:
        (a) Must be on letterhead; AND
        (b) Must include the applicant’s full name; his/her date of birth; and the date when NZ residence was granted; AND
        (c) Must be signed with proper date by an immigration officer; AND
      (d) Must display the INZ official seal.
