COVID-19 Immigration

Several dormant provisions in the Immigration Act 2009 have been reactivated following New Zealand’s declaration of a State of National Emergency and formal Epidemic Preparedness Notice.

​​New Zealand’s declaration of a State of National Emergency and formal Epidemic Preparedness Notice has activated a range of dormant provisions in the Immigration Act 2009.​ The reactivated provisions include the extension of existing temporary entry class visas and give judges the ability to deal with immigration matters without requiring attendance.

Bell Gully’s immigration team can provide advice on a variety of matters under the Immigration Act 2009 including existing temporary entry class visas.
