ICEF Monitor – New Zealand launches pilot for five-year pathway visa
6 Jan 2016
New Zealand has introduced a new pathway visa that will allow international students to study for three consecutive programmes over a five-year period, and all on a single visa.
Announced by Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment Minister Steven Joyce and Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse on 27 November 2015, the new Pathway Student Visa is being introduced via an 18-month pilot that kicked off on 7 December 2015. The pilot process will include more than 500 primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions across New Zealand.
On the strength of a renewed national branding initiative, the combined efforts of institutions and stakeholders, and an increasingly coordinated strategic approach to building its international market share, New Zealand has seen real gains in its international enrolment over the past three years.
