New Zealand State of Emergency: Immigration Operations Affected by Floods

Severe flooding in New Zealand affects immigration operations. Read about extended deadlines and support for impacted visa holders.

New Zealand is currently in a state of emergency due to severe flooding that has affected many parts of the country. As a result, Immigration New Zealand has had to adjust its operations to accommodate those impacted by the floods.

One area that has been affected is the Skilled Migrant Category. The draw for Expressions of Interest has been extended by a week until Wednesday, 22 February. This decision was made to give those who have been without power or affected by the flooding more time to apply.

In addition to this, there have been reports of delayed or cancelled international flights as a result of the weather. This has left some people whose visas have just expired or are about to expire in a difficult situation. Immigration New Zealand is urging anyone affected by recent flight delays or cancellations to contact them urgently for assistance.

It is essential that anyone who requires help gets in touch with Immigration New Zealand as soon as possible. The agency is well-equipped to deal with these types of situations and is committed to providing support to those in need.

The flooding in New Zealand has caused a great deal of disruption and has impacted the lives of many people. However, it is reassuring to know that the government and its agencies are working to provide assistance and support to those affected. If you or someone you know has been impacted by the flooding or flight cancellations, please reach out to Immigration New Zealand for assistance.
