The new Post-Study Work Visa rules in New Zealand may also affect student visa holders’ partners. You may be granted a partnership-based work visa of the same length as your partner’s Post Study Work Visa. This means, in some instances, the length may be shorter in the new policy. Suppose your partner is not eligible for a Post Study Work Visa due to the new rule. In that case, your partner has to have other eligible work visas, such as an Accredited Employer Work Visa, to support your partnership work visa.
