New Zealand Parent Visa


Parent Visa

If you have an adult child who is a New Zealand citizen or resident, you may be eligible for resident visa under Parent Visa Category and live permanently in New Zealand.

NEW ZEALAND PARENT VISA

You can apply for NZ Parent visa either under Tier One or Tier Two category. To qualify, you must meet the following criteria and submit Expression of Interest (EOI). EOIs are pooled and selected from the pool quarterly and those selected are issued Invitation To Apply (ITA) for Residence visa. You must be

  1. sponsored by your adult child who is a New Zealand or Resident;
  2. not have any dependent children;
  3. meet English language requirements;
  4. meet Health and Character requirements
  5. meet requirements under either Tier One or Tier Two of Parent Visa Category

Sponsor must meet sponsorship requirements including income test to qualify as an eligible sponsor.

SUSPENSION OF EOI SELECTIONS AND REVIEW

With a view to manage numbers within the reduced family cap of 4,000 places for 2 year period (July 2016-June 2018), selection of EOIs under parent visa category have been suspended with effect from 12 October 2016, until further notice. As 3,600 applications are currently under process or have been issued ITA, we do not expect EOI selections to take place until mid-2018.

Government has also announced a review of the parent visa category and it is expected that the eligibility criteria will be tightened. Pending review, parents can still submit their EOI but should bear in mind the long waiting period for selection and/or the possibility of their EOI being impacted under revised policy.
