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 2003, amend the Immigration Regulations 1999 in 3 main respects:

the fees payable in respect of. applications, appeals, and other matters specified in Part 1 of Schedule 3 of the principal regulations are amended. Most fees are increased, but some are reduced. The separate fee banding for matters dealt with in London or the Hague is removed (regulation 3 and Schedule):

the separate settlement information fee will no longer be payable on the issue or grant of a residence visa or residence permit by persons who apply for their visa or permit on or after 1 July 2003 (regulation 5). In effect, this fee is now subsumed in the new application fees.

citizens of Samoa and persons applying under the Government Residence Policy for Victims of Domestic Violence are entitled to a $90 fee reduction on applications for residence. Citizens of Samoa are also entitled to $90 reduction on all applications for long-term business visas and permits and work visas and permits under the talent and priority occupations list work policies (and persons who have already paid their application fees on such visas and permits once are entitled to $90 reduction on any subsequent application or on a later application for residence) (new regulation 43A):

citizens of Pacific Island countries transiting through Auckland on their way to or from the Pacific Islands are exempted from the transit visa fee (regulation 4).
