I am Kyung Mi from South Korea and I became unlawful in New Zealand when my Partnership Based Temporary Entry Application that was being processed in Immigration, got declined.
After careful consideration of my surrounding circumstances Vandana Rai lodged my Section 61 Request, which was granted by the Immigration in a matter of three weeks. Vandana advocated my case on the facts that I had become unlawful due to circumstances beyond my control, and that I was living in a genuine and stable relationship with my partner which enjoyed social recognition and had financial interdependence.
As such I was given a General Visitor Visa to maintain my lawful status and also spend more time with my partner, explore New Zealand and practice English.
I strongly recommend the services of New Zealand Immigration Advisers to all those who have become unlawful in New Zealand unintentionally and want to become lawful again.
