Add a Qualification

For when you would like to add an additional qualification to be assessed after your IQA has been completed. This service is only available for one year (12 months) after the completion of the original IQA.

A maximum of five qualifications can be evaluated per application. After this a new application must be lodged.


New Purpose Fee

If you require a new purpose to be added to your Recognition Statement (such as immigration, teacher registration, etc.).

This service is only available for one year (12 months) following the completion of the initial IQA. 

In most cases this involves a reassessment of your qualifications for that purpose, and will require the standard processing time for an IQA application.

Review Fee

If you believe the evaluation outcome in your Recognition Statement is incorrect or that we missed some relevant information, you have the right to request a review of our decision. This fee will be refunded if the evaluation outcome is found to be incorrect.

This service is only available for 12 months following the completion of the initial Recognition Statement.

All fees given above are GST inclusive where applicable, and are subject to change. Contact NZQA or re-check the website for a list of current fees at the time you make your application.

The fees listed in the table above do not cover charges made by third parties. For example, if NZQA asks an education provider for verification of your qualifications and that education provider charges a fee, we'll let you know so you can pay the fee directly to the education provider.

Partial refunds may be requested. However, amounts will be at the discretion of NZQA after determining the amount of work that has already been completed. If you have paid the fast track application fee and NZQA fails to meet the processing timeframe (20 working days), a refund of the fast track fee is available.
