Visa Information

To study at Elite, international students must have a current student visa for a specific course within the college. A student visa application form can be obtained from an agent, one of our Campus Managers or downloaded from the New Zealand immigration website.

If you are found to not hold a valid visa or you terminate your enrolment prior to commencement of your course, New Zealand Immigration Services will be notified immediately. You must obey New Zealand law. If you are convicted of a crime it is likely that you will have your student visa revoked. 

If you do not fulfil course requirements (such as missing classes or handing in assignments late) the college may take steps to cancel your visa.  

Upon arrival in New Zealand the school will check your visa for validity and a copy is kept for evidence on your personal file.

Full details of immigration requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available from Immigration New Zealand.
