NZ partner supported a successful residence application for a previous partner in the last five years
A partner of an NZ resident came to us after organising a paid consultation with us. Unfortunately, she applied for her residence four and half years after her NZ partner supported his ex-partner before. It means she submitted her resident visa application six months earlier. It happened due to her NZ partner's miscalculation.
According to the immigration instructions, the supporting NZ partner must not have supported a successful residence application for a previous partner in the last five years.
After discussing options with Simon, she engaged with our firm. She was offered and accepted our advice. Simon communicated with her case officer directly to clarify the matter and then withdrew her application with her permission. In doing so, he made sure this withdrawal would not affect her future visa application.
She worked with us to prepare her new Partnership based Resident Visa application and submitted it to be decision-ready with our careful assistance.
Finally, four months later, her resident visa was approved. If she did not follow our advice, then this would never happen. Hence this success is mainly due to our teamwork.
Although INZ will introduce a new work visa policy and a new SMC resident visa policy, there will be no change to the current Partner Visa policy. If you are in a similar situation, please consider contacting us for consultation.
How you prepare documents and approach to the requests by your case officer will make a huge difference. We have been quite successful in many partnership-based Visa Applications. Before you decide to engage with us for your case, please test whether your case would succeed via our service below.
