ANZ works with Immigration New Zealand to help students from China, India, the Philippines and Sri Lanka organise their banking in New Zealand. The Funds Transfer Scheme (FTS) was established to help verify proof of funds to assist with visa processing by Immigration New Zealand.
Students can open an account with ANZ before they arrive in New Zealand. ANZ will confirm to Immigration New Zealand upon receipt of funds into the student's New Zealand account. The funds are then held in a savings account with regular instalments being paid to the student for their day to day living expenses.
Immigration New Zealand may send you an AIP letter to give you Approval in Principle for your student visa subject to you using the FTS to transfer funds to New Zealand.
