Temporary Visa

Include Children on a Temporary Visa

There are many situations where you can include children on a temporary visa. This includes visitor visas and student visas. If your child is 17 or younger they must be single and must rely on you for financial support. This applies if they are 18 or 19 as well but Immigration New Zealand will also look at whether they have children of their own – if they do they cannot be included on your application.

Children over 20 must make a visa application on their own.

In addition to the above, different criteria applies depending on the type of visa you are applying for.
