New Zealand One-off 2021 Resident Visa

Sunday, October 03, 2021


On 30 September 2021, the Government announced a new one-off residence visa pathway for some temporary work visa holders currently in New Zealand. Some people arriving in New Zealand between 30 September 2021 and 31 July 2022 on long-term visas may also be eligible for this new visa. Partners and dependent children can be included. About 165,000 migrant workers in New Zealand will become eligible for residence. 

We have created a special page to explain the visa here: https://www.choosenewzealand.com/en/migration/2021-resident-visa-explained/.

We have also created an eligibility test tool so you can use it to check if you are eligible and when you might be able to apply. You can find the tool here: https://www.choosenewzealand.com/en/migration/2021-resident-visa-are-you-eligible/.

After the eligibility test, if you wish to use our service for the Resident Visa application, you can leave more of your details (we do have some of your details but it is still safe to have the most up to date information from you). Then our team will be in touch with you. We are offering an Early Bird Special at the moment till the end of October, so fill it out now to secure our lowest service.

Please feel free to contact me and the team if you have any questions.
