Visa processing delays
Due to borders re-opening, we have been notified by Immigration New Zealand that they are experiencing an influx of applications. This is causing major delays in processing visas for visitors into the country. Therefore we cannot guarantee that your visa will be accepted in time for travel to the conference.
We encourage you to keep pursuing your visa application with Immigration New Zealand, as your in-person participation is valuable. If circumstances mean you cannot attend in person, our virtual programme of the conference will still offer a rich and interactive experience.
We advise participants to monitor official New Zealand Government channels for the most up-to-date entry and visa information. Please visit www.covid19.govt.nz/international-travel for further details.
