The Parent Category will close from 16 May 2012 until July 2012 and applications cannot be lodged during this time. However applications (with all necessary documents) accepted for processing by Immigration New Zealand on or before 15 May 2012 will be processed.
The Sibling and Adult Child category which allowed residents to sponsor their adult siblings and/or adult children is now closed.
