2. Extension or Residence Application: After residing in New Zealand on the temporary visa, applicants may apply for an extension of their visitor visa or consider transitioning to a different visa category, such as a partnership-based residence visa, if they intend to stay longer.

Benefits

The Partner Visitor Visa offers numerous benefits:

1. Access to Services: Visa holders can access New Zealand’s healthcare and education services, ensuring their well-being during their stay.
