    Default Changing a single entry work permit into a multiple entry work permit

    Hi,

    I am currently in NZ on a single entry skilled migrant work permit. But need to go abroad on business next week. Is there a quick and easy way to change my visa to multiple entry as I have to go on this trip and few others before Xmas?
    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ross

    Hi Ross,

    I think this is what you want to know.

    Im well within the time allowed by my temporary Work Permit but I need to leave New Zealand for a short time and come back

    Before you leave New Zealand you need to check that your Work Permit is a multiple journey permit. A multiple journey permit allows you to leave New Zealand and return without making any further arrangements. If you were instead granted a single entry permit, you need to apply to us to change this to a multiple journey permit. A single entry permit allows you to enter New Zealand only once that is, when you first arrived. Please allow enough time to apply to change to a multiple entry permit before you leave.


    From here.

    Thanks a lot for the help. As I did not know I needed to go abroad until yesterday and I leave in 7 days is there any way of doing this faster. For example filling in the form and then taking it to one of the Auckland brnaches and getting it processed there and then?

    Thanks

    The only thing you can do is try. If you explain your situation and are prepared to wait around, perhaps they will do the process while you are there. I guess it depends on whether you get someone who is prepared to help out.
