Yes, but you must first have residency for a minimum of three years.

Hi thanks for that

Do you know if she would be able to come and stay on a long term visit visa and just renew it when needed untill that time?

She'll be able to stay with you for a spell, but not for the full three years. This from the NZIS website:

How long can I stay?

The maximum stay under a visitor visa is nine months. As visa-free conditions only last for three months (or six if you are from the United Kingdom), you will need a visa for any longer stay.

We only allow visitors to come for nine months in any 18-month period. This means, for example, if you visited for five months a year ago, you could only stay for another four months on a trip now.


That's way it goes I'm afraid.

Beachcombers is an unknown quantity at this point

Just a footnote, you can apply for a three month extension to an existing visitors visa.

For example a UK visitor can apply for three months on top of the existing six months giving you a total of 9 months in one visit.

The 9 months in 18 still applies though.

Is your Mum able to work? The reason I ask is that there are more than several older women (65+) who work in the sewing factory where my wife works. The factory is chronically short of workers and they will sponsor for work permits.
Maybe that isn't the best idea or suitable for your situation, but just thinking out loud here.

Good luck.

Not sure on the recent changes but my parents moved over here under the family category two years after us (2 years ago). Providing the majority of siblings are resident in New Zealand was how they did the move and they are both retired.

Never heard of any conditions attached with being here 3 years before being allowed to do that? I know that because of our arrival dates we had to be here 3 years before gaining citzinship and they have to be here 5 years.

Hi there
I know this thread is pretty old now but can I ask was that skilled work ie seamstresses or just casual work that nobody wanted to do? Just curious.....my mum is 67 and wanting to come back with me to Auckland in march ...she loves sewing but is no machinist. trying to get my head around whether this was an isolated incident or fairly common for certain mundane jobs???
thanks

Hi Colin
I know this is an old thread ... but can I ask you to clarify the above thread. Do you have lots of other brothers and sisters living in NZ? So that they had a strong case? Would grandchildren count in the same way that siblings do?
Just trying to figure out why it was easy for your parents
Thanks
Debbie

I'm not sure if I can answer your question satisfactorily, but I'll have a go. My wife's position is sewing machinist and she is on an annual contract. She does production work on the trouser line. She doesn't take in sewing or do casual piece work (which is not uncommon in the trade).

Unless I'm wrong here I can't see your mum getting a work permit on the basis of doing piece work at home.

I have a sponsorship form for parents in front of me right now... to sponsor a person under the Family Category - Parent policy you:
* need to be over 17 years of age
* need to be currently living in NZ
* need to be either a NZ or Australian citizen, or the holder of a current NZ residence permit
* need to have been a citizen or the holder of a current NZ residence permit for at least 3 years immediately prior to the date the person you are sponsoring will make their residence application
* need to have spend at least 184 days in NZ in each of those three years
* need to meet the minimum income requirement (which is about $29k)

In regards to the parents' children, they talk about a centre of gravity. So if they have four children, then at least two need to be NZ resident. If they only had one child resident, they wouldn't be able to apply.
