With New Zealand family visas, there are a number of different paths to gaining a visa if you want to join your family in New Zealand.

If you simply want to visit your family while you are on holiday then a Visitor visa will suffice. However, if a member of your family is a New Zealand citizen or Permanent Resident then you may be eligible to migrate to New Zealand.

Parents, partners, dependent children and young adults and grandparents of New Zealand citizens and permanent residents are able to join their family in New Zealand. Many family members have the ability to either travel to New Zealand temporarily or attain permanent residence through the appropriate channels.

For parents looking to join their children in New Zealand there are also options for temporary and permanent retirement.
