The eligibility criteria of Victims of Family Violence Work Visa is being expanded by Immigration New Zealand (INZ) to include partners of temporary migrants affected by family violence.
This visa is available from 28 February 2023, has a 6-month duration and open work rights and there is no fee to apply.
Currently, partners of New Zealand citizens and residents can already access the visa.
This change is intended to reduce the difficulties experienced by migrant victims of family violence, who may also be able to apply for an extension or a Victims of Family Violence Resident Visa upon expiry.
More information about the Family Violence Work Visa & its eligibility criteria can be found here.
