COVID UPDATE: Please continue to send us your applications to study at WITT – we look forward to welcoming you to study with us in 2021, however:

Immigration New Zealand has advised that Visa processing for overseas applicants is on hold. This is because people who are not New Zealand citizens or residents are unlikely to meet the current entry requirements. Immigration New Zealand (INZ) is not able to legally grant a visa to people who are unlikely to meet the entry requirements. Please do not submit a student visa application until INZ confirms that the processing of offshore student visa applications has recommenced.

Please refer to the Immigration New Zealand website for further information.

In line with Immigration New Zealand (INZ) recommendations WITT encourages prospective students to employ the services of a trusted WITT education agent and/or a Licenced Immigration Adviser (LIA) Licensed Immigration Adviser.   It is our experience that student visa applications to Immigration New Zealand via an education agent or Licensed Immigration Adviser have a higher visa success rate and a faster visa processing time. Please contact WITT for a list of recommended agents in your region.
