- Applications should be lodged at the INZ office, Visa Application Centre or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade post currently responsible for receiving applications from the geographical area or country in which the applicant currently lives. Receiving Offices can be found on the INZ website.
- If an application is lodged at an office other than the appropriate one, the application may be referred to the appropriate office.
- Applications must be lodged in the prescribed manner as set out in N3.10.1.
- Applications that are not lodged in the prescribed manner will not be accepted for processing.
For the purpose of transit visa instructions, mandatory requirements for applications lodged on an approved form means the application must be made on the form Transit Visa Application (INZ 1019). The form must be completed in English, in full, be signed by the applicant (unless the applicant is less than 18 years old, in which case it must be signed by a parent or guardian of the applicant) and submitted to an immigration officer, together with
- the applicant’s passport or certificate of identity; and
- two passport-sized photographs of the applicant’s head and shoulders; and
- the appropriate fee; and
- travel tickets to a country that the person has a right of entry to or other evidence of onward travel arrangements that the officer thinks necessary for him or her to determine the application; and
- a confirmed travel itinerary including relevant arrival and departure times from New Zealand; and
- a statement of the purpose of the journey to the country of destination; and
- any other information or evidence (including photographs) that the applicant considers demonstrates that he or she is eligible to be granted a transit visa; and
- the immigration officer processing the application may require the applicant to do either or both of the following before determining the application:
- be interviewed by an immigration officer
- produce further information or evidence (including photographs) that the officer thinks necessary for him or her to determine the application.
- 有些申请人或他们的顾问可能请求移民官考虑申请签证时不通过填写《过境签证申请》 (INZ 1019)表来进行，并且移民官可能同意这样的请求。
- Despite N3.10.1 above, a person or their adviser may request an immigration officer to consider an application for a visa not made on Transit Visa Application (INZ 1019) and an immigration officer may agree to the request.
- Where an immigration officer agrees to that request, the applicant must supply the following in English and in any way appropriate to the circumstances
- his or her full name; and
- his or her date and place of birth; and
- details of his or her passport or certificate of identity, including country of citizenship; and
- details of any current or previous visa (or permit as the case may be) held by him or her; and
- such information and evidence that the immigration officer thinks necessary for him or her to determine the application; and
- any other information that the applicant considers shows that the transit visa application should be granted
- any other information that he or she considers shows that the transit visa application should be granted
- The application must be completed by the applicant
- acknowledging that the details supplied in support of the application are true and correct to the best of his or her knowledge; and
- agreeing that if his or her circumstances change before a visa is granted, he or she will notify an immigration officer of the change in circumstances; and
- paying the prescribed fee (if any) for the type of visa applied for, or arranging for the payment of that fee in a manner satisfactory to the immigration officer; and
- signing the application (except if the application is made in an electronic format).
If the applicant is less than 18 years old, E4.50.5©(iv) does not apply. Instead, the application must be signed by his or her parent or guardian, except if the application is made in an electronic format or at an immigration control area (in which case the form must be signed by the parent or guardian only if the applicant is accompanied by that person).
- Where an immigration officer has agreed to a request to consider an application for a visa made otherwise than on an approved form, the immigration officer may at any time before a visa is granted as a result of the application
- refuse to consider the application, or continue to consider the application; and
- inform the applicant that if he or she wishes to pursue the application, he or she must do so using the relevant approved form.
- If an immigration officer refuses to consider or continue to consider an application for a visa made otherwise than on an approved form then
- the application will be treated as not having been made; and
- the applicant must apply for the visa in the normal way; and
- in the event the person pursues an application for a visa in the normal way, the mandatory requirements as set out at N3.10.1 will apply; and
- any application fee will either be refunded or applied toward any visa application made by the same person.
Before determining an application made on an approved form or otherwise than on an approved form, the immigration officer processing the application may do one or more of the following
- require the applicant to be interviewed by an immigration officer
- require the applicant to produce further information or evidence (including photographs) that the officer thinks necessary for him or her to determine the application
- require the applicant to undergo a medical examination or another medical examination, as the case may be
- require the applicant to produce travel tickets to a country that the person has right of entry to or evidence of onward travel arrangements that the officer thinks necessary for him or her to determine the application
- if not already provided, require the applicant to produce his or her passport or other certificate of identity.
- Each principal applicant must lodge a separate application.
- The partner of a principal applicant, and dependent children less than 20 years old, may be included on an application for a transit visa if intending to travel to New Zealand together.
- For the purpose of inclusion in an application, a partner is a person who meets the definition of partner in E4.1.20. Partners who do not meet this definition must apply for a transit visa in their own right.
- For the purpose of lodging an application, ‘children of the principal applicant’ means biological or adopted children of the principal applicant and/or the principal applicant’s partner (if the partner is included in the application).
- Evidence of the relationship of each applicant to the principal applicant must be given with the application.
- The requirements in relation to the application (including any that an immigration officer may require an applicant to meet before determining an application) must be met in relation to the principal applicant and each applicant, except that any applicant less then 18 years old is not required to sign the application.
- Before granting a transit visa, an immigration officers should sight
- evidence of a fully paid airline ticket or other form of onward travel arrangement; and
- a written itinerary from the travel agent or carrier, including relevant arrival and departure times; and
- a written statement from the applicant of the purpose of the journey to the destination country or countries.
- Transit visas must only be granted to a person if an immigration officer is satisfied they have a genuine intention to pass through New Zealand on the way to another destination within 24 hours of their time of arrival.
- The Minister or an immigration officer may in his or her absolute discretion, grant a transit visa as an exception to immigration instructions.
- The decision to grant or refuse to grant a transit visa is a matter for the discretion of the Minister of Immigration or an immigration officer.
- No appeal lies against a decision of the Minister or an immigration officer on any matter in relation to a transit visa, whether to a court, the Tribunal, the Minister or otherwise.
- No review proceedings may be brought in any court in respect of any decision to refuse or cancel a transit visa.
