Immigration advocacy service
Many Pacific families come to New Zealand for better opportunities. However with English as a second language communication issues can sometimes be a barrier, such as understanding correspondence and forms from Immigration New Zealand.
Advocacy services are provided when English as a second language is an issue. All immigration advocacy services are informal and should not be considered official immigration advice.
Immigration advocacy focuses on:
- Verbally explaining official INZ documents and correspondence
- Verbally explaining which INZ forms to complete for your personal situation
- Translation via the Immigration NZ Language Line
