Character Waivers for Residence and Temporary Visas: How We Can Assist

Navigating the character requirements for New Zealand visas can be complex, especially for those who may have encountered legal difficulties or made mistakes in the past. Our immigration advisory service specialises in assisting clients who need to address character concerns in their visa applications, including applying for character waivers. Here’s how we guide you through this intricate process:

Comprehensive Case Evaluation

We start by conducting a thorough evaluation of your situation. This involves reviewing any past criminal history, instances of providing false or misleading information, or any other actions that could impact your character assessment by Immigration New Zealand (INZ). Understanding the details of your history allows us to accurately assess your eligibility for a character waiver.

Tailored Advice on Character Waivers

Based on our assessment, we provide tailored advice on the possibility of obtaining a character waiver. We’ll explain the criteria INZ uses to evaluate character issues and how they apply to your specific case, including the significance of any offenses and the likelihood of securing a waiver.

Preparation and Submission of Your Application

Our team assists in preparing and submitting your visa application, ensuring that it includes a comprehensive explanation of any character issues, alongside a strong argument for why a character waiver should be granted. We focus on presenting your case in the best possible light, highlighting factors such as the time elapsed since any offenses, your current circumstances, and any contributions you can make to New Zealand.

Guidance on Special Directions

In cases where a character issue might significantly impact your visa application, we explore the option of requesting a special direction from INZ. This involves making a compelling case for why an exception should be made in your circumstances, often relying on exceptional factors related to your personal situation or potential contributions to New Zealand.

Advocacy and Representation

We act as your advocate throughout the process, representing your interests to INZ. This includes preparing for and responding to any queries regarding your character assessment, and ensuring that your application is processed fairly and thoroughly.

Transparency and Support

Throughout the process, we maintain a transparent and supportive approach, keeping you informed about the status of your application and providing guidance on any additional steps that may be required. We understand the stress and uncertainty that character issues can bring to the visa process and are committed to offering empathetic and effective support.

Mitigating Risks and Maximising Opportunities

Our expertise allows us to identify and mitigate potential risks in your application and to maximise the opportunities for a successful outcome. Whether your case involves minor indiscretions or more significant character concerns, we’re equipped to provide the strategic advice and representation needed to navigate the character waiver process.
