When a migrant remains in New Zealand beyond the expiry of their visa, they are considered to be unlawfully in the country and have an obligation to leave. If you are an “overstayer”, you are liable for deportation. You run the risks of being arrested, detained, deported and banned from entering the country. Additionally, if your family or friends help you to remain in New Zealand unlawfully, they are committing a crime under the Immigration Act 2009.
