Default Essential skills visa


Would you be able to assist with the below question,

My wife will be coming to work shortly on an essential skills visa and I will be joining her on a partner visa. Once we are in New Zealand do you know if I would be able to submit my own application for residency while living and working in New Zealand on a partner visa. I would submit my owner application for residency and include my wife as my partner.

Thanks for any assistance in advance.

Users Flag! Originally from england. Users Flag! Expat in newzealand.

Hmm wouldn't bet on that for a while with all the Covid-19 restrictions. Gonna be a long while till the government lift the restrictions on the passage of visitors and migrants.

Once you do get here as the partner of a temporary work Visa holder then yes so long as you meet the criteria to be the principal applicant in a resident visa application then of course you can apply and have your wife as the partner on the application.
So long as you have a skilled job offer in nz and minimum 160 points on the EOI.

EOI submitted Jan 2010. ITA Jan 2010. ITA submitted Apr 2010. RV approved June 2011. Passports stickered and back to us Aug 2011. Secured job Dec 2011. Arrived Mar 2012. PRV Mar eligible for citizenship but at $1175 Yeah but Nah!!!
