Summary of Terms

Limited Visa

The limited visa is offered when we want to invite you into the country, but wish to place more specific restrictions on the terms of your visit.


The visa will expressly state the reason for your visit and the date by which you must leave New Zealand.


The limited visa has other added restrictions. You will not be able to:

  • apply for a different type of visa while you are here, or
  • request a special direction, or a visa under section 61 of the Immigration Act 2009, or
  • bring any appeal whether to a court, the Tribunal, or otherwise.
