14DA Limited purpose visas
  • (1) If a person who is outside New Zealand applies in the prescribed manner for a limited purpose visa, a visa officer may issue a limited purpose visa if the person—

    • (a) wishes to come to New Zealand for an express purpose; and

    • (b) will not be exempt from the requirement to hold a permit to be in New Zealand.

    (2) If a person who is outside New Zealand applies in the prescribed manner for a temporary visa (rather than a limited purpose visa), a visa officer may issue a limited purpose visa rather than the temporary visa applied for if, and only if,—

    • (a) the person is of a kind described by subsection (1)(a) and (b): and

    • (b) the visa officer identifies a risk in the particular case that the person will remain in New Zealand beyond the expiry of his or her permit; and

    • (c) the visa officer considers that the issue of a limited purpose visa rather than a temporary visa is necessary in the particular case to manage that risk.

    (3) A holder of a limited purpose visa who arrives in New Zealand during the currency of that visa may on arrival apply only for a limited purpose permit.

    (4) It may be a precondition to the issue of a limited purpose visa that a bond be paid in accordance with section 148B, being a bond imposed for purposes other than the management of the risk that the person concerned may remain in New Zealand beyond the expiry of the permit granted on the basis of the visa.
