New Zealand is an equally pleasing place for the young and the old. If you wish to join your resident children in New Zealand and spend your retired golden days in the country, then parent resident VISA is for you. This VISA enables you to join your resident or citizen children. All you need to do is send in an expression of Interest. You will have to meet the requirement of tier 1 or tier 2 of our existing system and be sponsored by at least one of your NZ resident or citizen children. After which if you get an invitation to apply then you can lodge the residence application. And once that gets approved you may live with your children in New Zealand.
This category of VISA allows you to work, live and study in New Zealand. You can also include your partner in the same application.
This is a quota and queue category of VISA, it means the number of people that will be granted residence under this category of VISA is limited yearly. If your application is made before closure of the quota then your application will be queued with Immigration New Zealand.
Grandparents and legal guardians are also able to apply under this category.
If you have some dependent children then you are not eligible for this VISA.
The category has been temporarily suspended and is pending a review post July 2018.
