I’ve have just had the results of a ‘work exchange’ visa application back from New Zealand and it was denied. The reason they gave was because they said I needed a police check which is very frustrating as I went through a visa company who advised me not to send one as I’d be there no more than 12 months.
My concern now is what happens in the future if I apply for work visas for any other country? (Or indeed for New Zealand again). I know that often in visa applications and even visitor entry visas they say ‘have you ever had a visa denied’?. Will I have to declare this every time I go to a country or make a visa application and will it stop me from being allowed entry to the country or getting work visas in the future?
I am hoping to apply for a work visa for Canada in a few years once I get some more experience in my field of work. I also like to visit the USA a fair bit.
I feel the company has cheated me and am very concerned it has affected my future chances.
Is there a way to appeal and how long does the visa denial last on my records? Will I have to declare it for the rest of my life?
