Default Can my daughter sponsor her brother?

My daughter is both a UK and Australian citizen and has recently moved to New Zealand. We are searching for information as to whether she is able to sponsor her brother who is a Management Accountant to come to New Zealand. He is a UK citizen and lives in Amsterdam with no partner or any other family. We have found conflicting information on some agents sites, which says she can, others say he would need a job offer, but we can find no information or any such visa on the Immigration website. I know the parent visa was recently suspended and will be introduced again in February and was wondering if the same has happened to a visa for a sibling.

As escape says, no she cannot.
He maybe able to apply if he is offered a job, he would need to check out the criteria for accountant to make sure he has the relevant qualifications to up take any job offer

The sibling and adult child part of the family category was abolished November 2010.

Just looking at this again, could an Australian citizen sponsor any category for immigration to NZ?
I know sibling category was abolished but (hypothetically) someone could have a parent and a $100k job and be dual UK/OZ citizen living in NZ.

it looks like an Australian Citizen can sponsor a parent, not a sibling. https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-...isa#conditions

If I am reading this correctly you would need a permanent residence visa which takes two years of continuous residence to qualify.
Then, presumably, as a permanent resident you set out to qualify as a sponsor.
If I am understanding this you can follow a similar track to another country's resident who has qualified for a permanent resident's visa. The bonus of Australian citizenship is that you don't have to have a job offer or anything. You can just move and start residing.
Does this sound right?
