Holger Weischede, director and licensed immigration adviser acted as the Representative for the Appellant. INZ declined the application as the appellant had not demonstrated the potential to successfully settle and contribute to New Zealand.
Holger argued that INZ did not properly apply the settlement and contribution policy to the appellant’s application.
The tribunal allowed the appeal resulting in the cancellation of INZ's decision due to a process which did not properly explore those matters and was not supported by the evidence and information available to INZ.

INZ declined the application as the appellant had not demonstrated the potential to successfully settle and contribute to New Zealand.
This is an appeal against the decision of Immigration New Zealand (INZ) to decline the application because the appellant had not demonstrated that she had the ability to, or could realise her potential to, successfully settle in and contribute to New Zealand. The principal issues for the Board are whether the INZ decision was arrived at following a proper process, which should have included a correct application of the settlement and contribution requirements of policy and an interview which focused on relevant issues, and whether INZ properly articulated reasons for its decision.
