Tribunal Appeals

Tribunal Appeals

If you have applied for a visa or other immigration-related application in New Zealand and your application has been declined, you may be able to appeal the decision to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal (IPT).

The IPT is an independent judicial body that considers appeals against decisions made by Immigration New Zealand (INZ).

To make an appeal to the IPT, you will need to complete the appropriate form and pay the required fee.

You will also need to provide any supporting documentation or evidence that you wish to be considered as part of your appeal.

It’s important to note that there are strict time limits for making an appeal, and you must do so within the specified timeframe.

Once your appeal has been lodged with the IPT, it will be considered by a tribunal member or panel.

The tribunal member(s) will review your case and any evidence presented, and may also hold a hearing to hear from you and any witnesses you wish to call.

After considering all of the evidence, the tribunal will make a decision and issue its ruling.

If you are not satisfied with the IPT’s decision, you may be able to appeal to the High Court on a point of law.

The decision of the IPT is final and binding, and cannot be appealed further unless there are exceptional circumstances. It is recommended to seek the advice of an experienced immigration lawyer or licensed immigration adviser if you are considering a Tribunal Appeal.

PPI Response-

PPI is a letter of concern from immigration New Zealand. If Immigration Officers are dissatisfied with your application they show their concerns in the form of a PPI letter.

The PPI letter may ask for additional documentation or evidence to support the visa application, or may seek clarification on certain aspects of the application.

It is important to respond promptly and accurately to a PPI letter as failure to do so may result in delays or even a rejection of the visa application.

If you receive a PPI letter from INZ, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a licensed immigration adviser or lawyer to ensure that you provide the requested information correctly and in a timely manner as it is your final chance to approve your visa.
