Domestic Violence Policy

Beth made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: Beth

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

I've reviewed your Immigration Policy and note that it is out of date in regards to Domestic Violence law. Throughout your operation manual it references the Domestic Violence Act 1995 which has since been repealed and replaced

Could you please release any discussion notes, email chains, policy recommendations or reports regarding this outdated policy and the potential impact this could have on a person who wishes to claim under Domestic Violence or has a visa being assessed based on a repealed law.

When does MBIE expect to update the policy to reflect the new law?

What was the earliest date available in records that staff have raised the issue of the law being outdated and what/if any actions were taken in regards to this being raised with MBIE?

Yours faithfully,

Beth
