Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2000, amend the Immigration Regulations 1999 in relation to the migrant levy.

Under those regulations, the migrant levy is payable by persons given New Zealand residence under the business investor or general skills categories of Government residence policy. The levy is set at $220 for each person, with a maximum of $880 applying to the total levy payable by persons included in the same application.

These amending regulations increase the levy to $235 (up to a maximum $940) for the business investor and general skills categories, and also applies it to the new entrepreneur and employees of relocating businesses categories.

The regulations also impose a lower levy of $125 (maximum $500) on persons gaining residence under the family category of residence policy. Excluded from the need to pay the family category levy, however, are citizens of Samoa and persons given residence on the basis of their relationship to a person granted residence under the special policy for refugees.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publications Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 1 June 2000.
