Welcome to the new immigration website

13 MAY 2016


Welcome to the new immigration website


The launch of a new immigration website heralds a new approach to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) delivering an easier, simpler and faster service for its customers.

The INZ website is one of the most visited websites in New Zealand; it’s one of the largest Government agency websites, with over 32,000 visits each day and over 12 million visits in the past year alone. Visitors to the website come from across the world to apply for a visa or find out more about visiting New Zealand.

Head of Immigration Nigel Bickle says, “INZ is becoming an increasingly digital service, with a new website and the ability for customers to apply for a visa online, wherever they are in the world.

“The new website puts the needs of the user above anything else. It is a gateway to INZ, and the first place that most of our customers will look at to find immigration information – whether they want to visit, study or work in New Zealand.”

Majority of the content has been completely rewritten so it’s simpler, clearer to understand and provided in the most logical place for customers who visit the website.

Key to the development of the website has been ongoing user-testing and feedback. We have conducted customer research to learn how our customers want to see the information. The designs have been tested with users and changes have been made in response.

As well as supporting the Governments’ commitment to attract the best migrants in order to grow the economy, the launch of the website also supports the Government’s Better Public Services initiatives of improving interaction with government.

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy


It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
