Pacific Quota Ballot announced
Following the ballot draws that occurred on 10 June 2016, successful registration numbers for the Fiji, Kiribati, and Tuvalu Pacific Access Category quotas are now available.
Find out if you have been successful on Immigration New Zealand's website (external link).
Immigration New Zealand will contact all successful registrants directly with information about the next steps and how to apply for residence in New Zealand.
The ballot selects up to 250 people randomly every year from Fiji, 250 from Tonga, and 75 each from Kiribati and Tuvalu. The Tonga ballot results will be published on 17 June.
If you were unsuccessful this year, we encourage you to register again for the ballot when the registration period opens again on 1 April 2017.
