How to become an ENZ Recognised Agency

ENZRA Logo Secondary3Update on the ENZ Recognised Agency programme

COVID-19 has continued to impact us all for much longer than anticipated, and with the New Zealand border remaining closed to most, ENZ Recognised Agencies are still unable to meet the points and approval rate benchmarks as required by the programme.

The reopening of New Zealand’s borders at the end of July 2022 was a huge milestone after the challenges of the previous couple of years and its great to see the number of students applying for visas continuing to increase as we start 2023.

We are currently reviewing our recognition programme for education agents. The review was signalled in the New Zealand International Education Strategy 2022-30, and aims to support the rebuild of our international education sector. Existing ENZ Recognised Agents will be able to continue using their ENZRA status under the current programme until 30 June 2023 providing they still remain a viable business and continue to meet conduct requirements.

We continue to work with our Recognised Agencies to ensure they provide appropriate support to prospective students, students in New Zealand, and their partner education providers.

Education agencies who continue to be highly engaged in the New Zealand education proposition remain critical to the recovery of the international education sector. 

We acknowledge and appreciate the strong interest in education agencies wanting to join the programme. Further announcements will be made in due course. We will continue to engage with education agencies via ENZ's AgentLab platform.
