Oz Kiwi is refocusing, scaling things back for the rest of the year. Our small team of volunteers are burnt out after six years of advocating for New Zealanders rights in Australia. Supporters might notice less activity on our Facebook page and website.
We need to refocus on our campaign for a fair pathway to citizenship for all New Zealanders in Australia. We currently spend much of our time repeatedly answering the same questions about visa and citizenship eligibility.
Oz Kiwi will continue to work behind the scenes with MP’s and Senators from across the political spectrum, and respond to any relevant new legislation or government inquires.
Have a question?
Help Oz Kiwi by reading our website FAQs before contacting us. There is information about possible options for citizenship, the Resident Return Visa, New Zealand 189 Visa and Australian citizenship. In particular:
- eligibility criteria
- how to apply
- required supporting documents
- application fees
- what happens After you apply
- processing times and
- travel restrictions.
You can also look up visa and citizenship information on the Department of Home Affairs website. This includes what happens After you apply, such as processing times and travel restrictions.
Contact your Federal MP if your application has taken longer than the currently stated visa application or citizenship application processing time. MPs represent you, even if you aren’t eligible to vote. They are able to make enquiries with Home Affairs on your behalf.
New Zealand High Commission
If a family member is facing deportation please contact the New Zealand High Commission (NZHC). If they have had their visa cancelled and would like to appeal complete the Request for Assistance form on this page.
