Get a Medical Waiver

How can you get a Medical Waiver for your visa application?

If you or any family member included in your application do not have an acceptable standard of health, your application will be declined, unless Immigration New Zealand will grant you a medical waiver.

For residence visa applications, medical waivers will only be considered, if you meet all of the other requirements for approval of your application.

For temporary entry class visa applications, medical waivers will only be considered, if you meet all of the other requirements for approval of your application, and:
