Prioritized Permanent resident visa case with a long-distance relationship
Case 1) A client came to us after his previous Residence from Work Visa application was declined. Although he indicated that he has a partner, he did not provide details of his partner as she lives overseas.
He engaged with us and prepared extensive documents to show that the long-distance relationship is genuine and sustainable. We also managed to get his case to be expedited.
However, before his permanent resident visa was about to be approved, his case officer challenged him. He was told to wait until she can join him in NZ to get the residency for both. We managed to negotiate to have his residence approved first, and then his partner will have her permanent resident visa when she arrives in NZ.
