What information does INZ 1028 contain?
INZ 1028 is a Fees Guide provided by Immigration New Zealand (INZ). It outlines the fees and levies charged by INZ for various visa applications and provides information on who is required to pay and how to make the payment. The guide states that if an application or request is declined, the fee and levies will not be refunded. The amount to be paid depends on factors such as the type of visa, the applicant’s country of citizenship, and whether the application is made from within or outside New Zealand.
The guide mentions that an immigration levy is payable on certain visa applications, unless the applicant is exempt. The levy is charged per application, except for group visitor visas where it is charged per person. The fee to be paid also varies depending on the applicant’s country of citizenship. Citizens of Pacific countries have different fee bands compared to citizens of other countries.
The document also introduces the New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA), which is required for certain travelers visiting New Zealand. The NZeTA aims to improve the assessment process for travelers and reduce the time needed for border clearance. It provides a link for travelers to check if they require an NZeTA before traveling.
Furthermore, the document explains that the purpose of the immigration levy is to fund programs and initiatives related to settlement, immigration research, and the operation of the immigration system. It also mentions the International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL), which funds activities aimed at attracting migrants to New Zealand, conservation efforts, and infrastructure used for tourism.
The guide provides a comprehensive list of fees for different types of visa applications, including residence class visas, work visas, student visas, and visitor visas. The fees are categorized into different bands based on the applicant’s country of citizenship. The document also mentions fee waivers for certain countries and exemptions for citizens of Pacific countries.
