Character Issues

Good character is a cornerstone of visa approval. Applicants must demonstrate that they have no history of serious criminal offences and pose no risk to the integrity of the New Zealand system. The assessment considers various factors, including past convictions, which might not necessarily disqualify you from obtaining a visa. Our expertise lies in presenting your case effectively, highlighting rehabilitation, and mitigating circumstances that showcase your positive contributions to society.

At MK Law, we understand the importance of presenting a strong case for good character, which is crucial for the success of your application. Immigration New Zealand demands high standards of character to ensure the safety and integrity of the country. This includes a thorough assessment of an applicant’s past conduct and any criminal records.

Character waivers offer a pathway for those who might not meet the strict character requirements due to past offences. Applying for a waiver requires a detailed submission, including evidence of rehabilitation and character references. Our experience in crafting compelling waiver applications can make a decisive difference, highlighting the reasons why you should be considered for entry or residency despite previous issues.

Our examples include an individual faced with visa eligibility issues due to past criminal records who was able to secure a character waiver through our expert guidance. By focusing on rehabilitation and positive contributions, we demonstrated the client’s commitment to societal values, which is essential for the waiver process.

Providing false or misleading information on your visa application can have serious consequences, including visa refusal or deportation. Honesty and transparency are paramount. We guide our clients through the application process, ensuring accuracy and completeness in all disclosures. Our team at MK Law is committed to supporting your journey to New Zealand, offering expert advice on navigating the character requirements with integrity and professionalism.

One such case involved an applicant who, due to a misunderstanding, failed to disclose certain information. Our detailed submission clarified the oversight and emphasised the applicant’s otherwise exemplary character.

We have also supported clients with significant contributions and strong ties to New Zealand who faced potential separation from their families due to character concerns. By illustrating their positive impact on the community and the unjust nature of the allegations against them, we helped keep families together.

Lastly, we’ve advocated for individuals whose minor legal infractions posed a disproportionate threat to their visa applications. Our nuanced approach to each case has enabled clients to overcome these hurdles, showcasing the importance of individual assessment in the immigration process.
