If your passport has expired, you are not able to apply online for the 2021 Resident Visa. However, from 4 July 2022, you are able to use the paper application form INZ 1365 for this purpose.
When you send your application form to Immigration New Zealand (INZ), you and anyone included in the application will also be required to submit copies of your passports (whether they are expired or current), full birth certificates or other identity documents. You should also provide evidence that you have applied for a renewal of your passport, and/or an explanation of why you are not able to obtain or apply for one before the 2021 Resident Visa closes. Once INZ has received your application, INZ will contact you to collect any fees if required to lodge your application.
