Appeals to Immigration and Protection Tribunal

Appeals to Immigration and Protection Tribunal


The Immigration and Protection Tribunal hears appeals relating to residence class visas and deportation appeals based on humanitarian grounds.

The Tribunal is administered by the Ministry of Justice, not Immigration New Zealand.

There are different types of appeal depending on your circumstances and each has a specific form that you will need to fill out when lodging an appeal:

If you choose to appoint a representative to act on your behalf, they must be a licensed immigration advisor, lawyer or someone who is exempt from having a licence.

We are here to:
o Discuss whether lodging an appeal to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal is the right course of action for you.
o Lodge an appeal on your behalf.
o Represent you during the appeal process.
o Liaise directly with the Ministry of Justice on your behalf.
o Listen and Care. For us, this is an integral part of the process.

*(Please note: The Ministry of Justice (as opposed to Immigration New Zealand) are the main point of contact when lodging an appeal with the Immigration and Protection Tribunal).
