How is the age cut-off applied for the New Zealand Investor 2 Visa?

I’ve seen that age 65 is listed as the cut off for applying for the New Zealand Investor 2 Visa. I’ll be 65 later this year but will have my application in before I turn 65. I am wondering if they only accept people who are 65 before they apply, in which case I am okay, or if they want people to be under 65 at the point the application is accepted.

    You must be 65 years old or younger to apply for the Investor 2 category. The moment that counts is when your (complete) application is accepted by INZ for processing; not the EOI, but the application itself. You should be fine then, as you can apply until you turn 66.
