New Zealand visa processing times may take longer from November to March
Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is currently receiving high numbers of visa applications. This is likely to continue until March 2019. This is typical for this time of year as visitor and student visa applications experience a peak from November to March due to the summer season and the beginning of a new academic year.
You can find recent processing times on the INZ website which will help you establish an estimated processing time for a visa.
When you are making travel plans you need to take these processing times into account. Submit your application as early as possible to allow enough time for your application to be processed before the date you intend to travel.
To ensure your application is processed as quickly as possible you need to supply all relevant information with your application, including translations. If you do not supply the correct information this could hold up the processing of your visa.
You should wait until your application is completed before you finalise your travel plans. INZ cannot prioritise visa applications even if you have already purchased travel.
Please wait until the indicated time for visa application processing has passed before contacting INZ, unless your circumstances have changed or INZ have exceeded the indicated timeframes.
If you have already submitted your visa application at the New Zealand Visa Application Centre in Taiwan, you can track your application here. Your status can also be tracked via SMS and email.
