Woh that's a difficult one to answer.

With a temp. work visa, you are allowed to live/work here in NZ based on the fact that you have been offered a job by an NZ employer.
ANY changes in your circumstances must be passed to Immigration as they need to re-assess if you still meet the criteria for that visa.
Not telling them means you are effectively in breach of the terms of your visa.

Inform Immigration that you are pregnant and see what they advise - hopefully they'll give you some options.

Good luck.

No, someone here fell pregnant before she arrived and hasn't been sent home. If you are the sole provider you will not get any help while you are on maternity leave. Also your new baby will not be a kiwi either. This is what they have been told.

Yes that's correct. Anyone here on a temporary visa must pay for the medical services they use and I'm thinking the whole giving birth process costs around $9 - $10k so I've heard but not 100% sure.
It is also correct that any baby born to someone on a temporary visa does not become an NZ citizen. They are provided with a temporary visitor visa that expires when their parents temp work visa expires.

Hi Dhinesh,

This is the some of the extracts from New Zealand citizenship website,


From 1 January 2006, children born in New Zealand (or in the Cook Islands, Niue or Tokelau) acquire New Zealand citizenship at birth only if at least one of their parents:
is a New Zealand citizen; or
has residency (i.e. is entitled to be in New Zealand or Australia indefinitely); or
is entitled to reside indefinitely in the Cook Islands, Tokelau or Niue.


please refer these links for more info.
