The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a circular announcing the visa application process for immediate family members of the victims of the terrorist attack in New Zealand.

They can apply for the visa through the following link: https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/about-visa/visitor-visa.

The circular states that applicants are advised to send the Application No, along with scanned copies of passports to Moin Fudda, the honorary consul-general of New Zealand for Pakistan. Fudda can be contacted via email (moin@fudda.org) or WhatsApp (+923428200200).

It says that in case of any emergency, such as the filing of financial details, the applicants are further advised to inform, through a letter, that they are the relatives of the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.

At least 49 people were killed and dozens wounded in the deadly attack which New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said was “one of the darkest days in New Zealand” after she referred to it as terrorism.
