Immigration Protection Tribunal Member - Auckland

Applications are invited from persons wishing to be considered for appointment as a full-time member of the Immigration and Protection Tribunal (IPT) based in Auckland. 

The IPT is established under the Immigration Act 2009.  The purpose of that Act is to improve New Zealand’s immigration system, and part of this improvement is streamlining the immigration appeal process by creating a single independent tribunal to consider all grounds for appeal together, where possible.

The Tribunal consists of:

  • Chairperson, being a District Court Judge
  • A Deputy Chairperson
  • Members, being lawyers who have held a practising certificate for at least 5 years or have other relevant or appropriate experience (whether in New Zealand or overseas)

Further details and an application pack are available on the Ministry of Justice website

The closing date for applications is 10 February 2023.
