If you are the partner of a New Zealand citizen or resident and you are living together with your partner in a genuine and stable relationship, there are a number of New Zealand Partnership Visas that may be available to you.
The most suitable New Zealand Partnership Visas may depend on how long you plan to stay in New Zealand, how soon you wish to travel and the length of time you have been living together.
Temporary partnership visas
If you have been living together with your New Zealand partner for 12 months or more, you may be granted a temporary visa based on your relationship for up to 24 months.
If you have been living together with your New Zealand partner for less than 12 months, you may still be granted a temporary visa based on your relationship (for up to 12 months), depending on the length of time living together and how genuine and stable your relationship is.
A Partner of a New Zealander Work Visa will allow you to work in any job for any employer for the duration of your visa.
To apply for a New Zealand Partnership Work Visa, you will need to:
Partner of a New Zealander Resident Visa
If you have been living together with your New Zealand citizen or resident partner for 12 months or longer, you may be eligible to apply for a resident visa as the partner of a New Zealander. You must be able to prove that you are living together in a genuine and stable relationship, that you are coming to New Zealand to be with your partner and that you meet health and character requirements.

Partner of a New Zealander Permanent Resident Visa
If you have been living together with your New Zealand partner for at least 5 years outside of New Zealand and they are a citizen (rather than a resident) you may be eligible for a Permanent Resident Visa. This is a great opportunity, if you meet the eligibility criteria, as you usually need to spend at least 2 years’ on a Resident Visa before applying for permanent residence.
