APPEALS AGAINST DECISION ON APPLICATION FOR RESIDENCE

ARTICLE by Peter Wong

July 2012

APPEALS AGAINST DECISION ON APPLICATION FOR RESIDENCE

Applicants whose applications for reisdence have been declined can appeal to the Immigration and  Protection Tribunal within the time frame.

The Tribunal has the jurisdiction to overturn the decision made on the application by the Immigration New Zealand (INZ) and if the appeal is successful, the application will be returned to INZ for reassessment or it can even direct INZ to approve the application in the circumstances where justified.

APPEAL AGAINST DEPORTATION ORDER

You should seek legal advice as soon as you become unlawful in New Zealand otherwise you may be subject to deportation or lose the right of appeal if it is not actioned within the required time frame.  You are unlawful to remain in New Zealand when your visa has expired.  It is in your best interests that your current visa must be renewed in good time.  Please do not hesitate to take action when it becomes necessary.

If you have lodged an appeal to the Tribunal, you may remain in New Zealand pending the outcome of the appeal..  At this point in time i.e. October 2012 the Tribunal is deciding the appeals lodged in September 2011.

If the appeal is successful, the appellanst may be granted time to embark on their immigration options or whatsoever directed by the Tribunal.

REQUESTS PURSUANT TO SECTION 61 OF THE IMMIGRATION ACT 2009

Section 61 decisions are at the absolute discretion of the decision maker. The decision maker is not obliged to give reasons for any decision relating to the purported application, other than the reason that the section applies.

If you need advice on section 61 request, decisions made on temporary visa, whether to accept an expression of interest to apply for residence, special directions and cancellation of temporary entry class visas, you may contact me to arrange for an appointment and I am happy to advise you on it.

My fees are reasonable compared  with what are charged by the Immigration advisers.
