Visa Options for Partners of New Zealand Citizens and Residents
For partners based in New Zealand and Offshore
Partners of New Zealand citizens or residents who are currently offshore may be eligible to apply for a range of visas which enable them to enter, work in and remain permanently in New Zealand.
The New Zealand borders are currently closed to most travellers, however partners of New Zealand citizens or residents who apply for and receive the appropriate visa will be exempt from the border restrictions and will be able to travel to New Zealand.
Partners of New Zealand citizens or residents who are already in New Zealand (whether on a partnership-based visa or another type of visa) and who wish to remain longer may also be eligible to apply for further visas based on their partnership with a New Zealander.
In order to apply for a New Zealand visa based on partnership with a New Zealander, applicants must be either:
in a de facto relationship with their New Zealand partner; or
married to (or in a civil union with) their New Zealand partner.
