If you know of a student who was in New Zealand on 2 April and their student visa was due to expire before 9 July, Immigration New Zealand should have automatically extended their visa expiry to 25 September 2020. This was under the original Epidemic Management Notice. Confirmation was emailed directly to all visa holders.
If the student received this extension and has not yet applied for a new student visa, they must act now (next Friday is 25 September 2020).
We encourage you to direct them to UC Enrolments who can can assist through the Provider Direct Service, but will require students to present with a completed INZ1240 application and all required supporting documents no later the 3:00pm on Wednesday 23 September 2020. Applications will not be accepted after this deadline, and students will be referred directly to Immigration New Zealand to apply for a new student visa.
Alternatively, students can apply to Immigration New Zealand for a new student visa here.
