New Zealand Visa Dependent of a Student / SPOUSE VISA

Last Updated on November 14, 2017 by West Highlander

Reasons Behind Spouse Visa Refusal New Zealand

Recently there has been a spurt of refusals of New Zealand spouse visa cases in North Indian market.  The main reason which has come into light is taking unlicensed immigration advice. As per the law of New Zealand, any person who gives immigration advice needs to be licensed by immigration adviser authority, New Zealand. This means that a person who is licensed by immigration adviser authority can only` apply spouse cases. What, infact has come to light is that unlicensed people are preparing spouse visa files and are not declaring  to the embassy that they have prepared the spouse file and submit the file in the name of the applicant . As a result the spouse visa applications for New Zealand are being refused by embassy on character grounds / providing false information.

  The person who intends to join his spouse in New Zealand can apply as a dependent of a student visa holder for a work visa or a visitor visa.

If your partner wants to join you in New Zealand, while you are in New Zealand on study visa then your partner/spouse may be eligible for a work visa or a tourist/ visitor visa depending on the level of course you are studying. It is mandatory that you apply your spouse visa application through licensed immigration adviser/lawyer only . To be eligible to be granted a spouse visa  you need to satisfy the immigration/visa officer that you and your spouse are living together in a genuine and stable relationship, and the relationship has been entered into with the intention of a long term commitment.
