If you wish to extend your visa, you will need to still meet the policy requirements of the visa that you are extending. You may also add a cover letter to your application explaining reasons you are unable to return to Fiji, to give your immigration officer a clearer picture of your situation.
Please note, however, that the outcome of your application is not guaranteed. You should also refer to the Fiji Sanctions leaflet, which explain the New Zealand government’s sanctions against Fiji following the coup on 06.12.2006, as these may affect your eligibility for further visas.
Depending on which visa you wish to apply for, please refer to the following links:
