Reconsideration

Overview

If your visa application has been declined by Immigration New Zealand and you do not agree with the way the decision has been made, rather than putting in a new application, you could consider requesting a reconsideration of the decision. This costs less and is quicker than putting in a whole new application. This option however can only be used if you still have a valid visa while in New Zealand. If your visa has already run out, the only option you will have will be to put in a s61 application.
