Another question

Unfortunately, due to NZ's Immigration laws, answers to this would probably constitute "immigration advice", and can only be given by a trained advisor - I am not one of these.
Having said that, when we came over to NZ, I was on a skilled migrant visa, and my husband was able to come in on the same application (i.e. two applicants, one application) - because he was also a native English speaker with a degree, and in the right age bracket, he even boosted the points slightly.
The Immigration NZ website ( is down at the moment, but if you have a check on there, there should be information on coming in as a partner of a skilled migrant.
Good luck!
