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 2 April 2002, amend the Immigration Regulations 1999 to provide for fees for visa and permit applications in relation to the new categories of residence created under Government residence policy. (These are the Pacific access category, the family quota category, the refugee family quota category, and the residence from work category.)

Fees are also provided in relation to the registration of persons for the ballots for the Pacific access, family quota, and refugee family quota categories, and the accreditation of employers under the talent (accredited employers) work policy.

The migrant levy applies to all the new residence categories except the refugee family quota category. (The existing exemption for Samoan citizens and refugees is, however, extended from its application to the existing family category to include the new family quota category.)

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

Date of notification in Gazette: 21 March 2002.
