Immigration adviser licence
A licensed immigration adviser must provide evidence of being licensed to the client.
An adviser may provide evidence of being licensed by:
- displaying their immigration adviser licence in a prominent place where the client can see it
- showing their licence wallet card to the client
- giving the client a link to their listing on the register of licensed immigration advisers on the Authority’s website, www.iaa.govt.nz.
An adviser must not wait to be asked to show evidence that they are licensed. Each client must be provided with this evidence when they make contact.
What has changed compared to the 2010 Code?
2010 Code – required advisers to display their licence in a prominent place in their place of business at all times and to provide evidence of being licensed to clients on request
2014 Code – requires advisers to provide evidence of being licensed to the client.
