Being in a long-distance relationship is hard enough, but it can be a real challenge when you add in the element of working in different countries. Not being able to see each other even for a visit can put a strain on the relationship. Unfortunately, my client's partner's first partnership-based visitor visa was declined. Having the decline made the case seem impossible.
When Simon was engaged, he decided to go to the Associate Minister to request an intervention, which was successful.
With the successful ministerial intervention, we again applied for the client's partner's partnership-based visitor visa. This time, it was not just successful but had a better result than we expected. Her partner was granted six months (not three months) visa.
The client is ecstatic with the result as she will now be able to reunite with her partner in NZ.
Note: The client and Simon never once met in person and did all communications through our advanced IT system. It was due to the restrictions on travelling and meetings because of Covid-19. However, when the restrictions got lifted, our firm decided to adapt the no face to face meeting policy with all our transactions, after we found out it was more practical and efficient.
