About the information you provide
Immigration New Zealand collects the information
about you on this form to decide whether you are
eligible for a resident visa. We may also use the
information to contact you for research purposes
or to advise you on immigration matters.
Collecting the information is authorised by the
Immigration Act 2009 and the Immigration
made under that Act. You do not have
toprovide the information, but if you do not we are
likely to decline your application.
It is an offence to employ a person who is not
entitled to work in New Zealand. One way for
employers to avoid committing this offence is
to check a person’s entitlement to work with
Immigration New Zealand’s online VisaView system.
VisaView is authorised by legislation.
If you believe that an employer has been given
the wrong entitlement information via VisaView
you may contact the Immigration Contact
Centre (0508 558 855) to request correction
of that information.
Deciding whether you are eligible to board
a ﬂight to New Zealand
The information we collect may also be used
to determine whether you are allowed to board
aﬂight to New Zealand.

the information you have provided with other

law, or with other agencies (as you have agreed

about you and have any of it corrected if you
think it is necessary. The address of Immigration
