If approved, you will be notified and need to:

  • have, or be willing to obtain, a valid visa to enter New Zealand (a copy of this must be received before travel is booked)
  • provide evidence of citizenship
  • agree to complete an evaluation form directly after the event/activity
  • briefly report on the steps taken towards putting into practice or action the training/new skills you have received within three months of the activity, and
  • agree to ongoing communication with the JPPF.
