Immigration ONLINE – Student

Did you know that you can now apply for your student visa to study in New Zealand online?

Immigration New Zealand has launched ONLINE-Student, a visa application service that allows you to apply, pay fees and upload supporting documents online. The new service is available if you are a full fee paying, scholarship, exchange or English language student.

Until label-less (e-visas) become more widely available in 2015,   you will still need to provide your passport, either through Visa Application Centres offshore or, if you are already in New Zealand, through the Immigration New Zealand Palmerston North office.
