COVID-19: Key updates on Visa extensions

Key updates on Visa extensions

Holders of a work, student, visitor, limited or interim visa with an expiry date of 2 April to 9 July 2020 inclusive who were in New Zealand on 2 April 2020 will have their visas automatically extended to 25 September 2020. Confirmation of extensions will be emailed to all visa holders.

If your visa has been extended you should have received a confirmation email from Immigration New Zealand. We used the most recent email address that you provided to us.

We suggest you confirm your visa expiry date by checking the Visa Verification Service on our website.

Immigration New Zealand cannot extend visa durations other than under the terms of the epidemic management notice. You may withdraw any undecided applications, but fees or levies paid for completed applications will not be refunded or deferred for another visa. NZeTAs are valid for 2 years.
