On February 22 Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is opening the 2021 one-off residency visa to people who have a Skilled Migrant Category expression of interest (EOI) in the pool, submitted on or before 29 September 2021.
RealMe, Immigration New Zealand’s online application portal crashed as soon as it opened. Inability to access the system affects migrants applying for the new one-off residency visa, especially those on temporary visas.
The one-off residency visa details have finally been announced in full, and its good news for migrants! The criteria will make it easier for migrants who have been in the country supporting NZ through COVID-19 to gain residency.
