For what reasons can I appeal

You can appeal these decisions only if you think:

  1. a) the Immigration New Zealand decision is wrong because you do satisfy the residence instructions in place when you applied for your visa, and/or
  2. b) you have special circumstances that mean the Minister of Immigration should make an exception to those instructions.

 

See section 187(4) of the Immigration Act 2009 to find out more about “special circumstances”.
