Here is a summary of recent updates in New Zealand Immigration Law:
- The Department has issued new Medical and X-Ray forms. Old forms will continue to be accepted until 30 November 2009, but if you have not completed your medical and x-ray checks, it is always better to use new forms.

- The Department has introduced a new Investment Migrant Policy. This policy allows people with anywhere from NZ$2.5 million to NZ$10 million to make an investment in NZ in return for residence. The policy recognises two types of investor: One who has no business experience but sufficient assets to be able to invest NZ$10 million in NZ for 3 years. And the other who may have less money to invest but who has at least 3 years worth of business experience.
Please contact us for more information about the investor migrant visa.
- The Department has changed fees as charged by overseas branches. The new fees will apply from the 17th of August this year. Details of the new fees charged by the Immigration New Zealand London branch can be found here:
