Immigration Settings

NZNO welcomes your feedback on New Zealand’s future immigration settings. 

The Productivity Commission is undertaking an inquiry into what immigration policy settings would best facilitate New Zealand’s long-term economic growth and promote the wellbeing of New Zealanders.

Your feedback is sought on actions that could help improve the treatment of migrants in New Zealand and encourage their retention and successful settlement. These actions include:

  • formally recognising efforts to learn te reo in decisions about residence or permanent residence.
  • limiting rights to return for permanent residents who leave.

The Commission is also exploring options for managing volume pressures, and making the immigration system run better.

Further information is available here.

Please send feedback to by 15 December 2021.
