Family Reunification Visa Category

Family reunification visa category

The aim of New Zealand’s family immigration policy is to help build the nation by strengthening families and communities. However, this aspect of the policy is still applied in compliance with and subject to the objectives of the Government’s overall immigration policy.

By way of a general overview, you can submit an application for New Zealand residence under the family reunification policy if you are living in a stable relationship with a New Zealand citizen or New Zealand resident, or you are a parent or a dependent child of a New Zealand citizen or New Zealand resident.

However, each particular residence application in accordance with the various categories of family unification under this policy is subject to different and very specific requirements.

We therefore suggest that, if you have a partner or family member who is a New Zealand citizen or New Zealand resident, you talk to your Quay Law immigration lawyer. We’ll be able to advise you on whether you would qualify for New Zealand residence under INZ’s family reunification policy and give you the correct guidance on how to get your application underway.

Whether it’s a complicated application or a standard application, we assure you that when dealing with our immigration lawyers and immigration advisers, you be in safe hands, as the standard of our services and fees are structured by the New Zealand Law Society.

For more information about family reunification visa category and to start your immigration application, please contact the friendly Auckland immigration lawyers and consultants.
