Want To Reside In NZ?

Citizens of Fiji are encouraged to register early for this year’s ballot under the Immigration New Zealand Pacific Access Category.

Registrations will be open between April 1 and 30, 2015. The ballot draw will take place on 5 June 2015.

Immigration instructions recognise the special relationship between New Zealand and Fiji.

Each year up to 250 citizens of Fiji will now be eligible for residence under the PAC, starting this year.

Eligible citizens of Fiji must be aged between 18 and 45 to register under the ballot.

The successful applicants selected from the ballot process will have until March 7, 2016 to lodge their residence visa applications; the principal applicant must also have an acceptable job offer from a New Zealand employer.

Ballot registration applicants are reminded to make sure they have the required forms and necessary documents.

Only one ballot registration form is needed for each family. Copies of birth certificates or front page of passports must also be provided for everyone named on the registration form.

The registration form and fees can be delivered to one of two Visa Application Centres in Fiji. In Lautoka the Visa Application Centre is on level 1 of the Sugar Cane Growers Council Building in Drasa Avenue, and in Suva at the Patel Samaj Hall, High Street. From 1 April 2015 these Visa Application Centres will be open from 8.30am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Registrations must be made by 30 April 2015. The fee for new registrations is FJ$129 and for those who have registered in a previous year the fee is FJ$69.

The fees can only be paid by bank cheque/draft made out to Immigration New Zealand.

Immigration New Zealand will contact each ballot applicant via a mobile text message or email to acknowledge receipt of their ballot registration form including their Client Registration Number.

Ballot applicants will need to hold on to this number to check the status of their registration after the ballots are drawn on June 5, 2015.

Ballot registration forms can be downloaded from www.immigration.govt.nz.

Limited numbers of forms will be available at National Employment Centre offices throughout Fiji from later this week.
