Reapply for a licence

People who have previously held a New Zealand immigration adviser licence and are no longer licensed can reapply for a licence.

If the applicant has held a licence within the 12 months before the date they lodge their licence application they will be able to reapply for a licence without completing refresher training.

If the applicant has held a licence more than 12 months before the date they lodge their licence application, they must have completed an approved refresher course within the 12 months before the date they lodge their licence application.

We aim to process fully complete reapply licence applications within 15 working days, or within 25 working days if it involves an inspection. If your application is taking longer, we are working hard to process it as soon as possible. If there are any concerns we will be in contact in writing to seek your response.”
