Study In New Zealand

The culture, adventure, and an exciting study experience await in the ‘land of the long white cloud’


The visa process for students intending to study in New Zealand involves several steps:

1. Choose a Course and Institution: Select a course of study and an educational institution in New Zealand that meets your academic and career goals. Ensure that the institution and course are approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and meet the visa requirements.


2. Apply and Receive Offer: Apply to your chosen institution and receive an offer of a place to study. The offer letter should include details about the course, tuition fees, and any conditions you need to meet before starting your studies.


3. Pay Tuition Fees (if required): Some institutions may require you to pay tuition fees or a deposit before they issue the official offer letter.

4. Prepare Supporting Documents: Gather the necessary documents for your visa application, including:

  • Valid passport

  • Offer of place from a New Zealand institution

  • Evidence of funds to support yourself during your stay in New Zealand

  • Health and medical insurance coverage

  • Character references or police clearance certificates

  • English language proficiency test results (if applicable)

  • Any other documents required by Immigration New Zealand (INZ)


5. Complete the Visa Application Form: Complete the relevant visa application form for studying in New Zealand. This can typically be done online through the Immigration New Zealand (INZ) website.


6. Pay Visa Application Fee: Pay the applicable visa application fee, which varies depending on your nationality and the type of visa you are applying for.


7. Submit Application and Biometrics (if required): Submit your visa application along with all supporting documents to the nearest New Zealand visa application center (VAC) or online through the INZ website. If biometric information (such as fingerprints and a photo) is required, you may need to provide this at a VAC.


8. Wait for Processing: Wait for your visa application to be processed by INZ. Processing times vary depending on factors such as the time of year and the complexity of your application.
