Samoa’s NZ permanent residence registration quota increases

Immigration New Zealand says the increase will make up for the unused places when the Samoa quota was suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to covid.

It says those unused places will be reallocated across over the years 2022-2025 with an additional 550 places available each year.

The new policy is in effect during the 2023 quota draw, which is now opened for registration until August 31.
