Partnership Visa New Zealand
NZ Partnership Visa for Work or Residence
Partnership-based visas are one of the most common and inquired types of visas in the NZ immigration system. They are a straightforward pathway for migrants to settle or migrate to NZ.
If you are in a relationship with an NZ citizen or someone holding an NZ visa, this is an option you should definitely consider.
That being said, it’s important to highlight that there is no such thing as a “partnership visa” in NZ. This catch-all term refers to some visitor, work or residency visas that are issued based on a relationship. Some partnership-based visas are applied for on their own while others are applied as part of a visa which allows including a partner as a secondary applicant. This means that there is no simple answer to how to obtain a partnership-based visa as this depends on the status of the sponsor (the NZ citizen or NZ visa-holder) and the nature of the relationship.
