Qualification evaluation for refugees

NZQA has a long-standing arrangement with Immigration New Zealand and the New Zealand Red Cross to evaluate qualifications for people who have come here as refugees.

We are responsible for evaluating overseas qualifications held by former refugees, displaced persons and persons from a refugee-like situation.
