Immigration Update - Commercial Airlines Transport Passengeres to New Zealand

ARTICLE by Peter Wong

July 2012

The New Zealand Government has established the Carrier Infringement Unit in the Immigration New Zealand by virtue of the Immigration Act 2009. 

With effect from 1 July 2012, commercial airlines which transport passengers who are not eligible for entry in New Zealand without reasonable excuse will infringe the law and it is an offence. The offending carrier may be liable to pay the fee for the infringement and in some cases, the carrier may be prosecuted on the offence in the District Court.

I have over ten years of experience in handling criminal practice and also experienced in the practice and procedure of the law enforcement agency by reason of having worked with the Independent Commission Agaianst Corruption in Hong Kong.. The newly established Carrier Infringement Unit is akin to a law enforcement agency. I am able to provide legal advice and services in matters relevant to the Infringement.. If your company  would require advice or information relating to the Infringement regime, please feel free to contact me.
