The New Zealand student visa application follows a different process from that of a visitor visa. Meaning that the processing time, fees, and validity of the former is much different from the latter. However, the process is still an easy one as long as you provide the required documents by the Immigration New Zealand and you meet the requirements as below:
- Place offered from a recommended education provider;
- Enough funds to pay for tuition fees and cost of living during your entire stay in New Zealand, as evidenced by a bank certificate or other similar documents;
- A valid passport;
- A return ticket or enough funds to purchase one in the future;
- For student applicants under 18 years old, an accommodation guarantee;
- In some cases, medical certificate; and
- Student visa application and application fee.
