Deportation from New Zealand
Can I be deported?
If you’re not a New Zealand citizen, the government can make an order deporting you to your home country. But before you can be deported, a copy of the deportation order must be given to you.
It would be a good idea to contact a Community Law Centre near you and get some legal advice from an immigration lawyer on these issues.
You are allowed to make free phone calls to your consular representative.
Can I appeal a decision to deport me?
Yes, you have a right to appeal and you can’t be deported until the time for bringing the appeal has run out or your appeal has been turned down.
