Post jobs and visas

If one of you has a job offer letter, then that gets sent with one visa application. Then there's another form to sponsor the other person that gets sent with the other visa application.

So there are three forms basically.

This does not include the long medical form with chest x-rays. So I guess that makes it five forms.

I don't think you need a job offer if you have a qualifying skill, but if you can afford it, I would recommend that you be there in person to do interviews and to do some general scouting around to figure out what you're getting into.

My partner and I have been together for 10 years so hopefully we qualify as "real partners". However I couldn't quite understand the process having read the NZ immigration website.

1 - When applying for EOI etc, are our points added together to form one application? Or should we apply separately?

2 - Either way, do we both need to get a job offer? I read that if an applicant is accepted then the acceptance extends to the rest of the family, but is that for a joint or single application?

3 - If, for example, I get a job and therefore an accepted visa application, presumably he can still seek work too?

Advice appreciated!

Sorry I cannot help with these answers. Tony and I have made it to NZ - he entered on a working Holiday visa and now we are beginning the partner visa to extend his permit. Thanks for all the advice - we now have everything possible in both our names and we are compiling an album of all our photos over the year. This time we are more prepared and have more time to get it right! Thanks everyone.

We supplied an invoice from a holiday that we'd both been on.
Or even a photo from a few years back (as long as theres proof that it was a while back - like naff fashion clothes!!)

Hi there
Sorry - no direct email addresses.
It sounds like you have a difficult situation so it might be worth contacting an immigration agent or lawyer for advice.

I am here on a partnership work visa. My Fiancee and I had to provide lots of information, including all copies of emails, texts, phone bills, cards, letters (with stamoed addressed envelopes, Joint bills and bank statements, letters of evidence from friends and families, photographs. We decided to give it our best shot and used Neilson Immigration Consultants - we had it completed within 2 weeks of submitting our evidence! - its worth taking the worry away and paying a bit extra!

Default Help partnership based temporay visa

My partner are almost ready to submit our application. My only concerns is that we have only been livng together for about 4 months Aug-November. Would that count as minimum living requirement?

Also most of the letters that we have, include our friends and one from his family. 2 of my close friends and 3 of his close friends 1 couple mutual friends and one of our flatmates. Is that enough you think? Is it nessesary to get from both families? coz my family have nothing to do with my relationship

lastly how long it take for a partnership based temporary visa take general to process? we plan to submit november but have only been living since august. I have been told 1 month or 3 months?
