Relatives who are citizens or residents of New Zealand may be eligible to sponsor you if you want to move there. To be eligible, applicants must fall into one of the following categories:
A New Zealand citizen or resident must be your spouse, de facto or civil union partner to be eligible for this visa.
When applying for a New Zealand Spouse Visa, you and your partner (whether married or single) need to show that:
- The applicant is eligible and meets all the prerequisites to apply; and
- The sponsoring partner is also eligible to apply.
For Dependent Child
To be eligible for this visa, you must be a child of a New Zealand citizen or resident who is under the age of 21. A parent or legal guardian that is responsible for sponsoring a dependent must fall into one of these categories:
- Citizens from Australia who are now residing in New Zealand and have a New Zealand residency permit
- Citizens of Australia who are currently living in New Zealand.
Children of New Zealand citizens and residents are eligible for this visa. You may apply if your kid is at least 17 years old and sponsors your application; your family’s “centre of gravity” is in New Zealand, and you have met all of the other conditions for applying to New Zealand.
As long as the kid has lived with you and your partner’s family unit for the majority of the time between the beginnings of your relationship with your partner and when the child reached the age of 17, they are eligible to be sponsored under this policy.
For Adult Child or Sibling
To be eligible for this visa, you must be a New Zealand citizen or resident’s brother, sister, or adult child.
You may be granted residency under this policy if you have the following:
- A New Zealand citizen or resident parent, brother or sister who is residing in New Zealand and can sponsor your application;
- No other siblings or parents who are living legally and permanently in the same country as you.
You must also have an acceptable offer of employment in New Zealand, which is defined as:
- Ongoing work with a single employer (that is, permanent, indefinite, or for a stated term of at least 12 months with the option of further terms); or
- One or more contracts totalling at least 6 months, if you have provided evidence of having had at least 2 years of contract work; and
- Full-time employment (averaging at least 30 hours per week).
- For a position that is paid by salary or wages (positions of self-employment, commission, and/or retainer are not acceptable);
- Accompanied by proof of full or provisional registration, if full or provisional registration is required by law to take up the offer; and
