The Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre (MRRC) is the central processing and assessment location for all refugees who arrive in New Zealand. It is a housing complex, set on a 10-acre (40,000 m2) site in Auckland owned by the New Zealand Government where all United Nations Quota Refugees enter for a 6 week period of assessment and orientation prior to resettlement.[1] The MRRC is the national refugee resettlement operation for New Zealand and is a 'one-stop-shop' with a collaborative service run by several key agencies.[2] including Immigration New Zealand, Refugees As Survivors New Zealand (RASNZ), Auckland Public Health Refugee Medical Services, Refugee Services Aotearoa New Zealand Inc., Auckland University of Technology, and the Red Cross.[3]
