Call to raise Kiribati Quota

The Human Rights Commission has called on the Government to increase the quota of Kiribati people granted residence in New Zealand every year.

Under the Pacific Access Category, 75 Kiribati citizens are granted New Zealand residency every year and increasing the quota is an immediate and real way we can show leadership, empathy and humanity as a developed Pacific nation,” Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy said.

75 Kiribati citizens are granted New Zealand residency every year under the Pacific Access Category (PAC), she added.

“Increasing our PAC Kiribati quota is an immediate and real way we can show leadership, empathy and humanity as a developed Pacific nation.”

Global definition

International law defines a refugee as a person unable to return to their homeland because they genuinely fear persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a particular social group.
