In addition, INZ removes people who are in breach of immigration law, or resolves their immigration status in other ways.

Another responsibility is to determine claims for refugee status in New Zealand under the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1967 Protocol. We select quota refugees and escort them to New Zealand, as well as arrange for their accommodation and induction after they arrive in New Zealand.
