From 18 May 2020 and at Level 2 of the COVID-19 Alert level, the office of the Trans-Tasman Occupations Tribunal will remain closed to the public. The Tribunal will continue to receive and process new matters and submissions sent via email.

Parties are encouraged to send documents via email in the first instance, followed by hard copies as necessary, sent by courier or post.

To apply to be registered in New Zealand, you need to apply to the New Zealand registration authority for that occupation.

Find New Zealand registration authorities on the Immigration New Zealand website(external link)

If you disagree with the decision of the registration authority, you can apply to the Trans-Tasman Occupations Tribunal for a review.

You can apply at any time.

The Tribunal can review the registration authority’s decision to:

  • impose conditions on registration
  • postpone the granting of registration
  • refuse registration.
