Other notable court cases involving TDA clients include:

XIUFANG XI & ORS V THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOUR HC WN CIV2006-485-000936 21 November 2007

Category: Investor

Background: Xi Xiufang was a Chinese national who applied for a residence visa under the Investor category. Madam Xi’s application was declined because INZ wrongly claimed that Madam Xi unlawfully transferred her investment funds to New Zealand, even though Madam Xi provided evidence from the Construction Bank of China confirming the legality of the transfer of funds. Using the Official Information Act TDA Immigration discovered that the INZ case officer had sent an email to the Minister of Immigration admitting that he had no idea of the banking regulations and laws of China.


YE AND ORS v MINISTER OF IMMIGRATION AND ANOR SC 53/2008 [20 July 2009]

Category: Overstayer parents of young New Zealand citizen children

Background: This is the landmark case for the rights of New Zealand citizen children being able to have their parents remain in New Zealand with their children, even though the parents were overstayers with no rights under immigration policy to stay. The three families involved were all clients of TDA Immigration.
