Changes to requirements for lodging a Deportation Resident and Non-resident (Humanitarian) Appeal
The Immigration and Protection Tribunal hears appeals and applications from migrants concerning refugee or protected person status, residence class visas, and deportation. From 2015 changes will be made to the lodgement requirements for Deportation Resident and Non-resident (Humanitarian) appeals in order to correct an inconsistency between the lodgement process and the Immigration Act 2009. One of the most significant changes is that adult family members must now pay a separate fee for each appeal application that is lodged. The updated appeals forms and guides can be found at http://www.justice.govt.nz/tribunals/immigration-protection-tribunal/forms-and-guides.
If you have any questions about the Immigration and Protection tribunal process or these changes you can email contact them at IPT@justice.govt.nz or visit their website http://www.justice.govt.nz/tribunals/immigration-protection-tribunal/.
