Immigration update Jan 2022

10:21 27 January in Family Practice News

Current demand is extreme due to new Residency 2021 Visa becoming available. The Government has allowed applications in stages, but there are tens of thousands of people applying at once.

Please DO NOT turn up, phone, or email, as we have several hundred people on our waitlist. We are making a big affort to clear the backlog including weekend clinics.

Immigration NZ has assured us, and all clinics, that people have until July to get residency applications in. Clinics all over NZ are experiencing similar demand and local clinics are booked through to March, so there is not a lot of point “ringing around”.

We anticipate clearing the wait list in several weeks, keep checking this page and we will update as things settle down. Feel free to fill in the booking form, but an appointment will be some weeks away.

Those already booked and have paid deposits will definitely get an appointment with us however. If Omicron becomes widespread things may be delayed further.

We require all those coming into the clinic to be double vaccinated against Covid

Children under 12 are exempt.

If you are not vaccinated you will have to try a different clinic sorry
