Default Sponsoring?

Since we've said we wanted to move everyone asks about our parents and what will they do etc. I was just wondering if you can sponsor people to go over to NZ how long do you have to be there before hand? Is there a limit to who and how many you can sponsor? I'm not saying they would even want to go and live in NZ but my hubby and I both have our parents and I also have my nan and grandad.

Any info would be great as they keep asking and we really dont have all the answers

Hi Lee Lee,
As far as I know you have to be a permanent resident for 3 years before you can sponsor your family.

Yes, my understanding is 3 years before you can sponsor and you must meet a minimum income - I think it's just under $30,000 per annum.

This from NZIS is useful.

Thanks, I didn't know they would be interested in your income

Yep, if you are sponsoring someone you have to prove to NZIS that you can afford to keep your sponsors for at least 2 years so there is a minimum income requirement that you have to prove. Also, if sponsoring parents, there is a centre of gravity question - for example if you are the only child and are in NZ permanently then the centre of gravity for your parents is NZ but if you have 2 siblings still in UK then your parents centre of gravity is UK so they wouldn't qualify for you sponsoring them.

You should also be aware that currently (last I heard anyway) was that sponsorship applications are dealt with in date of application order. Currently people applying are waiting at least 18 months before the case is being looked so you'd need to add that to your 3 years PR wait time.
