The Embassy of the People's Republic of China in New Zealand, the Consulate-General of the People's Republic of China in Auckland, and the Consulate-General of the People's Republic of China in Christchurch (thereafter "the Chinese Diplomatic Missions in New Zealand") have become aware of advertisement published by a visa agency which self-proclaimed as "the business partner of the Chinese Embassy and Consulate General", and is "the authorised agency of the Chinese Embassy and Consulate General", and also claimed that the Chinese Embassy and Consulate General provides a "VIP Green Channel" for the visa agency.

The Chinese Diplomatic Missions in New Zealand therefore have made the following announcement:

1. The Chinese Diplomatic Missions in New Zealand have never built up partnership with any visa agencies, nor have given authorisation to any visa agencies to be the official visa agencies, and no individuals or organisations have received any special treatment or exceptions for their visa application procedure.

2. The Chinese Diplomatic Missions in New Zealand have requested the visa agency and media agency to remove all false advertisement immediately.

3. The most up-to-dated requirement of any consular applications (including visa application) are available at the Chinese Diplomatic Missions official website and are subject to the interpretation of consular officer.

The Chinese Diplomatic Missions in New Zealand are currently reviewing its requirement for consular applications, it will be made available to the public in near future.
