Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding approved in principle for student visa.

If a student, who is currently in New Zealand, is applying a student visa online, can s/he apply without paying the fees in advance? (The reason is the school is permitted to deduct up to 25% of the total tuition fee no matter what happens)

From overseas, it is a common practice. Anyone knows if it works the same way if we do it in New Zealand as online system doesn't seem to have that option.

Thank you in advance for your advice.


Kind regards,

Hilly
