New Zealand’s immigration department is most often the first experience immigrants have with a New Zealand government organization. The treatment and services provided by New Zealand Immigration Service should therefore reflect a postive and helpful manner. Information provided by the New Zealand Immigration Service should reflect knowledge of policy and cultural understanding.
“…the importance of immigration to New Zealand… It is a driver of economic growth, and it assists us to meet a range of obligations to the international community.”
Dr Jonathan Coleman (Minister of Immigration, New Zealand)
