New Zealand immigration has been rejected 1 out 3 Partnership which is creating trouble for those who are intending to move New Zealand. Even, immigration experts have also expressed their concern on this matter. INZ authorities are taking an extremely tough stand for these visa cases. In the past year, the rejection rate for the partnership Visitor visas had been increased to 35% which is very high than the rate 14% of 2007.
As per experts, this will have an extensive impact on families if INZ starts curbing the number of Partnership Visitor Visas. Association for Investment and Immigration, in a statement, said that” there is a conversion in the manner of dealing with the applications”. The manner in which appeals to the Minister of Immigration is handled is also tightened, as quoted by the Radionz Co NZ.
The chairperson of Association for Investment and Immigration said that INZ is taking a vigilant approach for visa applications. The way it handling some cases is quite unjustified and unfair because it is not transparent.
There is not much enhancing of toughness in the area of Partnership Visitor visas, elaborated the Chair of AMI. The concern is regarding the genuineness of the relationships, she added. More evidence is being sought as applicants do things for their convenience to sail through the system.
People have right to appeal to an independent reviewing body who are overseas while the visa applications get denied, said the chair.
Krystel and Steve Razos have got married 4 years ago in the Philippines. They also have a 2 years old son Johnny from the Wedlock. On the other hand, INZ gave a clarification that the couple misled it when the couple separated provisionally and thus canceled her visa while Krystel was on a visit to the Philippines to meet her family members. INZ said that she had offered misleading and false information. It was not satisfied that the couple was in a stable and genuine relationship, said INZ.
