IMMIGRATION ADVICE

To help complete a visa application and assist with their travel, some people seek advice from a number of different organizations for example immigration consultants, lawyers or other businesses specializing acting as an Immigration Adviser for migrants.

If you lodge an application with INZ and you are using an unlicensed adviser, INZ will refuse to accept your application.

Who needs a licence?

The Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007 requires that anyone providing any immigration advice has to be licensed, unless exempt.

How do I know if an Adviser is licensed?

To become licensed, a new Immigration Adviser they must now have a Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice Level 7 or now the Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice (Level 7) and apply to the Immigration Advisers Authority for a license.

Licensed advisers are listed on the register of Licensed Immigration Advisers. To see the register, go to www.iaa.govt.nz.

If an adviser is not on the register of licensed advisers and they are not exempt, any applications they make on behalf of a client will be returned, and INZ will advise the Registrar of the Immigration Advisers Authority.

What does the Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007 (the Act) do?

The Act aims to protect consumers and enhance the reputation of New Zealand as a migration destination.

The Act creates a framework for the regulation of individuals providing immigration advice both onshore and offshore.
