COVID-19 Update:
New Zealand is moving to Alert Level 2 on Thursday 14th May 2020

Our border remains closed for non-residents and citizens with very few exceptions. All major offshore offices of Immigration New Zealand have remained closed. The changes may also affect those already in New Zealand through delay or if work visa conditions are unable to be met through redundancy etc.

Pacific Legal’s experienced team has decades of experience in hard cases and excellent communications with senior Immigration New Zealand management.  Clients need to be realistic about expectations and timeframes at this time but with the right information we can confidently assess you case and give an realistic appraisal. We’ll ensure services are maintained for our valued clients and employers.

Right now we are prioritising urgent applications for employers and clients already in New Zealand and work for current clients. New clients offshore will go into a notification list for as soon as border restrictions lift.  We’ll do some basic assessment of their cases as time permits. Even if we can’t help you now, we can lay a strong foundation for a strong application after the border reopens. Our website will be updated with further details.

Please note that those with temporary visas due to expire between 1st April and 9th July 2020 will automatically have their visas extended until late September 2020.  Immigration New Zealand has advised confirmation of extensions will be emailed to all visa holders.

The Government recently announced that New Zealand will be moving from Alert Level 3 to Level 2 on Thursday 14th May 2020.   Our office is therefore in transition, where are currently working from home with some staff returning to the office.  While we check phone messages regularly, email is the best form of contact.  Only face-to-face meetings are envisaged at Level 2, by appointment only and adhering to physical distancing rules.  Most meetings will be via telephone, Zoom, Skype etc.  The Ministry of Health is regularly updating its advice. Pacific Legal is working to minimise disruption.  We have the systems and plans in place to do so. Contact us on our email enquiry form below. There will be some delays, as with all businesses.

We thank you for your understanding. Stay safe.
