When to pay your fees

As an international student, you need to pay tuition fees before you can apply for a student visa to enter and study in New Zealand. You also need to pay non-tuition fees and Studentsafe insurance charges.

When your payment has cleared, you get a Receipt of Payment or Statement of Account to give to Immigration New Zealand as part of your visa application. You need to log in to the Massey student portal to get these documents.
