New Zealand Spouse Visa

Spouse visa or Partner visa

 We can define it as a partnership of two people of the same or opposite sex, who live together in a genuine and stable relationship in any of the following:

· A legal marriage

· A civil union

· A de facto relationship.

When you apply for a visa based on your partnership with a New Zealand visa holder or New Zealand citizen, that person is called your supporting partner.

You and your supporting partner must:

· Be aged 18 or over, or if they’re aged 16 or 17 years, have the consent of their      parents or guardians

· Have met each other before applying for a visa based on your partnership

· Not be close relatives.

What are the partnership requirements

· Spending time in each other’s homes while you each maintain your own home
