Immigration New Zealand

Immigration New Zealand is headed by Deputy Chief Executive Greg Patchell.

Immigration New Zealand looks after New Zealand’s immigration rules and laws, which in turn support our economic growth and strengthen our relationship with other parts of the world. We offer a range of visas to help those who can contribute to New Zealand to visit, work, study, live, or invest here.

We work with international organisations and industry partners to improve border security and make immigration easier. We lead government strategy designed to help migrants settle in New Zealand.

The group has five branches:

  • Compliance, Risk and Intelligence
  • Visa Services
  • Service Design and Performance
  • Settlement, Protection and Attraction
  • Business Strategy and Governance.
