I would also note that the Ministry has promised a refresh of the forms since they introduced the current ones in 2016, due to persistent technical issues with them.
The Ministry sent NCHENZ, as well as HSNZ, a draft copy of the new forms, and we provided substantial feedback on them a few weeks ago. The Ministry is now working further on the forms. What further changes they will make and when these will come into effect are yet to be seen.
Once I know what the final format will look like, NCHENZ and I will provide updates on anything families need to be aware of.
Meanwhile, a reminder of my longstanding advice - it is best NOT to use the Ministry's application form, except for Section One. For the rest, use a separate document to answer the questions. Just this week I've seen another case where a family completed their application using the Ministry form, but when they sent the file to the MoE, at the Ministry end it appears to be 3/4 blank, even though the information is definitely there - both I and the family can see it, but Ministry staff can't, even in a copy transmitted by me on the family's behalf. That's just one of the frustrating examples of the many technical difficulties experienced with the current forms. Hopefully they will be resolved as part of the updated forms in due course.
