The intention of creating a well-streamlined immigration system and still being the perfect host to scores of legitimate visitors is New Zealand’s’ new resolution at the verge of 2016. These changes make the land of the long white cloud in par with Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States who have made a vitalized immigration policy.
The number of visitors increasing has also upgraded the frequency of flights from October 30 last year. Similar with South Africa, China and Argentina too are responsible to increase the tourist market of New Zealand with a predominant rise each year.
Yielding to the fact that the increase in numbers has put a rein to the immigration policy in making the visa-free travel completely obsolete. Certainly the previous have been waived due to a few factors such as exploitation of the 3month free stay policy, overstaying and counterfeit acquiring of passports.
The New Zealand authorities have issued a two-month notice to all South African public of their intention of the new change which would come into effect post the festive season. South Africa might take a decision to respond by diminishing the visa exception which the New Zealand passport holders enjoy.
Now for every visa to be processed the applicant ought to apply six weeks in advance of their intended travel, relevant documents, purpose of visit, ticket information would be a primary prerequisite. Likewise works permit visas to have required credentials. This would be found on official websites as well.
The processing fees for a New Zealand visa is four times the amount South Africa visa requires as a payment for the visa application. The visa fee to acquire a South African Visa seems to be the lowest for the past 14 years. There would be a change implemented to align with inflation.
The good quality of education, the luxury of feeling safe and remarkably a tolerant and easy going society are the reasons why New Zealand is drawing scores of people. And economically the country is making predominant progress with the support of a strong ongoing management and system.
The new age policy by New Zealand is to bring about a change in the immigration policy and not to hamper visitors.
