Dependent Child Resident Visa NZ

Dependent child resident visa is a special category of visa for those who are already residents/citizens of New Zealand and wish to bring their dependent children into the country to live with them. This Visa is applicable to children who are aged 24 or younger. It allows children to live and study in the country and even work if they are of the legal age.

Notable Points (as per the information available on public domain)

  • If your children were eligible for New Zealand residence under the Family Quota, Refugee Family Support Category, Samoa Quota Scheme or Pacific Access Category but weren’t included in your residence application, they’re not eligible for this visa.
  • If your children were eligible for New Zealand residence under any other category but weren’t included in your residence application, we may ask you to explain the reason for this.
  • Some children of New Zealand citizens or residents are New Zealand citizens by birth or descent. If your child is a citizen, they do not need to apply for residence. Check the website below to see who is a New Zealand citizen.
