Deportation appeal by a resident/permanent resident, or cancelled refugee and/or protection status person.
Humanitarian appeal against deportation.
If you have had an application or request declined, and you are not happy with that decision, you need to take any avenue of review available to you. For example, if you have been declined a temporary visa you can ask for the decision to be reconsidered as long as you are still in New Zealand lawfully, and make your request within 14 days of the decline of your visa. If you are not in New Zealand lawfully you can appeal against deportation to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal (IPT) if you lodge your appeal within 42 days of the date that your visa expired, or the date you were notified that a temporary visa reconsideration has been unsuccessful.
If you’ve been declined residence you can usually appeal to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal (IPT) within 42 days. Your appeal rights are listed in the letter declining your application for residence. Appeal and Judicial Review If both an appeal on a point of law and a judicial review of proceedings are sought about the same case, the party must lodge the applications for appeal and for judicial review together. The High Court must endeavour to hear both together (unless it is not practical to do so). It is strongly recommended that legal advice is sought before filing an application for leave to appeal on the point of law or an application for judicial review with the High Court. These appeals and reviews are specialist immigration matters requiring legal advice and support.
Appeal to Court of Appeal Section 246 of the Immigration Act 2009 provides for an appeal to any party in an appeal dissatisfied with the decision of High Court. This appeal is governed by S66 Judicature Act 1908. It is an appeal on the error in point of law, and the leave of the High Court or Court of Appeal must be sought for this appeal to take place. Section 254 of the Immigration Act 2009 provides for an appeal to the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court involving Classified Information.
