The Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007 (Licensing Act) was passed in 2006. The purpose of this Act is to promote and protect the interests of consumers receiving immigration advice, and to enhance the reputation of New Zealand as a migration destination, by providing for the regulation of persons who give immigration advice.
Under the Act anyone giving immigration advice must have a license issued by the Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA) unless they are exempt. If anyone is not exempt under the Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007, it is an offence for that person to provide immigration advice without holding a license, and Immigration New Zealand will refuse to accept his/her client’s application.
If potential applicants wish to receive immigration advice, they should contact a licensed immigration adviser or immigration lawyer at www.iaa.govt.nz or www.lawsociety.org.nz
