Parent Resident Visa restarts

The Parent Resident Visa restarts on 12 October 2022 with reduced requirements for sponsors. INZ will resume selecting existing expressions of interest (EOIs) on 14 November 2022.

They are also increasing the number of visas available each year from 1000 to 2500.

Changes for sponsors

INZ is also lowering the income requirements for sponsors and allowing 2 adult children, rather than just an adult child and their partner, to combine their income to sponsor parents.

A sponsor now needs to earn 1.5 times the New Zealand median wage rather than twice the median wage. This limit increases by half the median wage for each joint sponsor or additional parent.

These new requirements apply to existing expressions of interest and those we receive from 12 October 2022.
