Important information for Ukrainian nationals as of 2nd March 2022
Urgent visa applications from Ukrainian nationals can be prioritised by Immigration New Zealand.
At this trying moment, our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, both home and abroad.
The Prime Minister has stated that the government of New Zealand is exploring what it can do to assist and support the people of Ukraine.
Urgent visa applications from Ukrainian nationals can be prioritised by Immigration New Zealand (INZ).
The Kyiv Visa Application Centre (VAC) is now closed, with no date set for its reopening. Individuals in Ukraine are encouraged to apply for visas online through INZ's website.
INZ believes that people from Ukraine in New Zealand on temporary visas may be unable to return to their home country due to circumstances beyond their control due to the present situation in Ukraine.
INZ urges people in this circumstance who have visas that are about to expire to apply for a new one so they can stay longer. These applications will be given top consideration.
