Responding to Potentially Prejudicial Information (PPI): How We Can Assist

When applying for a visa to enter or remain in New Zealand, encountering Potentially Prejudicial Information (PPI) can be a significant hurdle. PPI refers to information not directly obtained from the applicant or their agent, which could negatively impact the outcome of the visa application. Recognizing the principles of fairness and natural justice, the immigration process allows applicants the opportunity to comment on such information before a decision is made. Here’s how Sekhris can support you through this process:

Understanding PPI and Its Implications

Our first step is to help you understand what PPI is and the potential impact it could have on your visa application. Whether you’re applying from outside or within New Zealand, we ensure you’re aware of how PPI is defined in your specific context and what it means for your application.

Identifying and Assessing PPI

If Immigration New Zealand (INZ) identifies PPI related to your application, they are obligated to notify you and provide an opportunity for you to comment. We assist in reviewing the PPI notice carefully to understand the information or material that INZ considers potentially prejudicial to your application.

Preparing Your Response

Responding to PPI is a critical step in the visa application process. Our team works closely with you to prepare a comprehensive and persuasive response. This includes clarifying any misunderstandings, providing additional context, disputing inaccuracies, or presenting mitigating factors that address the concerns raised by the PPI.

Advocating on Your Behalf

Our experienced immigration advisers advocate on your behalf, ensuring that your response to the PPI is submitted in a timely and effective manner. We aim to communicate your position clearly, reinforcing your eligibility and suitability for the visa you’re applying for.

Leveraging Legal and Immigration Expertise

Responding to PPI effectively requires a deep understanding of immigration law and the specific criteria applied by INZ in visa decision-making. Our expertise allows us to navigate these complexities, advising you on the best approach to mitigate the potentially adverse effects of the PPI on your application.

Ensuring Fairness and Natural Justice

We uphold the principles of fairness and natural justice in every step of responding to PPI. This means ensuring that your rights to be heard and to respond comprehensively to any information that may affect your visa application are fully exercised.

Continuous Support and Guidance

Throughout the process, we provide ongoing support and guidance, keeping you informed and involved. We understand that dealing with PPI can be stressful and daunting, and our goal is to make the process as clear and manageable as possible.

Preparing for All Outcomes

While we strive to achieve a positive outcome by addressing PPI effectively, we also prepare you for all possible scenarios. This includes discussing next steps and options in case the visa application does not proceed as hoped.

Dealing with PPI requires a careful and considered approach.
