The following describes the different categories of citizenship, residency and the verified documents you need to supply.
If you are not a New Zealand citizen you may be a holder of a New Zealand residence class visa. If you are one of the following you are entitled to residence.
Please note that residency or permanent residency only applies while you are living in New Zealand. Holders of a New Zealand residence class visa living overseas, and studying by distance, are required to pay international fees.
Both of these visas allow you the same privilege of living permanently in New Zealand, but they provide you with different travel conditions. For regulations see the Studylink website.
