Welcome to the INS | The Journey of Sonship application process. We are thrilled that you are considering joining us at the INS and we trust Father will guide you as you walk through the process of completing the forms and of further considering the INS.
> Application Form Guide
Please complete all of the questions on the application form. If a question doesn’t apply to you, write N/A (not applicable) in the space provided. Husbands and wives must complete separate application forms.
Applications will be received up until 4 weeks prior to the commencement of the school. If you are using the postal/mail system you need to take into account international post/mail time. Applying early will ensure a place in the school since accommodation is limited.
> Non-Refundable Deposit & Final Payment
Once your application has been processed and accepted, a non-refundable deposit of One Thousand New Zealand Dollars (NZ$1000) per person will be required to secure your place(s). The deposit can either be paid by cheque (for New Zealand residents only), a bank draft in New Zealand Dollars (for foreign applicants) or electronically wired funds through the banking system (relevant details are included in the acceptance package). Accommodation will only be allocated upon receipt of your deposit.
NOTE: All relevant bank charges will be the responsibility of the applicant and need to be taken into account when making
the INS. The balance of the school fees is to be received 4 weeks prior to the start of the school, unless otherwise arranged with the school leadership. We will notify each applicant of the balance which is due after receipt of their deposit.
There is an Emergency Information, a Consent for Medical Treatment, a Release of Liability, a Financial Responsibility Declaration and a final Confirmation page contained within the application. All applicants will be required to bring with them a signed hard copy of this page when they arrive at the school. Please note that New Zealand law regards anyone under the age of 20 as a minor, and thus co-signatories will be required (a parent or guardian for all applicants aged 19 years and under).
> Personal References
Reference Forms, both from your Pastor/Spiritual Leader and from a Friend who knows you well, along with a Personal Health Form will be required as part of the application process. Please request that your referees complete the applicable forms either online (see application page) or by e-mail, post/mail or fax according to the instructions given on the forms. Your application will not be processed before all of these are received.
> Skype Interview
After receiving your application and reference forms, the Registrar will arrange for a personal Skype or telephone interview. Please arrange a Skype address where you can be contacted. Telephone interviews will only be conducted as an exception.
All non-New Zealand residents attending this school should have a valid passport with an expiration date of at least 6 months after the conclusion of the school.
New Zealand Immigration will allow visitors from most countries to obtain a 3-month visa on arrival at the airport. A copy of your return ticket is necessary. Please check the New Zealand Immigration website for visa details pertaining to your country.
NOTE: If you are not able to receive a "visa on arrival" you will need to apply for a visitor’s visa beforehand. Please be mindful that you need to start the visa application process long before the start date of the school. Obtaining your visa is your responsibility.
Medical insurance is compulsory for all international INS participants and is also strongly recommended for all New Zealand participants. Possible comprehensive options include:
