    Default How do you get clause 18a removed?

    I have a clause 18a bit in my passport, according to that and INZ I have to prove I have worked for three months in my job that I included in my application.
    I can do that now, with payslips and a letter from my employer but I cannot find out who I see and how I go about actually getting new blue stickers?
    Has anyone here been through the process, and can give me some hints
    The search function doesn't seem to like "18a".

    In your original letter from NZIS with the 'approval' then it explains the process. You need to write to the local NZIS office to where you live, with your passports (all applicants), bank statements and payslips / letter from company confirming that you are employed in the job you used for the application and the dates you've worked there and a letter asking for removal of the 18a. I think it took less than a week for mine to come back from Hamilton.

    My paperwork is in the office I think, let me know if you can't find it and I'll scan my letter for you.

    I found it
    Unfortunately I'm going to have to get my boss to write another letter, this one doesn't state my start date...

    I can't remember reading the letter when it arrived, just staring at the blue stickers in my passport

    Ditto what Duncan says!
    Our 4 passports also took less than a week to come back from Hamilton.

    I took mine into the Chch immigration office and handed it in - got it back within the week. Was well impressed.
