Some Visa Filings Centralized

February 26, 2019 | New Zealand

Beginning January 14, 2019, online and hard copy visa applications (excluding student applications) from those residing in the Wellington and Palmerston North regions have been sent to Auckland’s National Documentation Office (NaDO) for centralized initial review. NaDO will ensure that the applications meet basic filing requirements then forward those that do to the relevant processing office.

Beginning February 4, 2019, all online and hard copy student visa applications filed within New Zealand must be sent to NaDO, and beginning June 3, 2019, all hard copy applications from South Island applicants must be sent to NaDO.

Hard copy applications should be mailed to NaDo at:

Immigration New Zealand, PO Box 76895. Manakau City, Auckland 2241, New Zealand

There is no change to the process for online applications or student applications filed through a provider.
