Changes to the Interim Visas for Partners


Changes have been made to Interim Visa conditions to reflect the new partnership-based work visa instructions that took effect in May 2023. These changes came into effect from 11 August 2023.


Interim Visas are granted to allow migrants to remain in New Zealand lawfully while they wait for the outcome of their visa application. They are a temporary measure only.

Interim Visas have different conditions, such as work rights, depending on the applicant’s current visa, and the visa they are applying for.


Interim Visa conditions – what has changed and what hasn’t.

  1. Partnership-based work visa holders who have applied for another partnership-based work visa - An Interim Visa will allow them to work for any employer. They will not have restrictions such as being required to work for an accredited employer or earn a specific wage.

  2. Partnership-based work visa holders who have applied for a different work visa type (such as an Accredited Employer Work Visa) - An Interim Visa will not allow them to work. Their Interim Visa will have the same conditions as a Visitor Visa.

  3. People holding a different visa type who have applied for a partnership-based work visa - An Interim Visa will not allow them to work. Their Interim Visa will have the same conditions as a Visitor Visa.


These changes ensure Interim Visa conditions are consistent across partnership-based work visas and other work visas.
