Immigration New Zealand's forms and guides have been updated in line with the Immigration Act 2009. The forms and guides are available to download now, though they can only be used for applications lodged on and after 29 November 2010.

Also available is the 29 November 2010 Immigration New Zealand Operational Manual, which contains the Immigration Instructions that will be used by visa officers to decide visa applications on and after 29 November 2010. Until that time, the current version of the Operational Manual will continue to be used.
