EOI New Zealand Parent Visa

PUBLISHED: 22-Sep-2021 

New Zealand Parent Visa category which was closed on 12 October 2016 re-opened on 24 February 2020 under the new policy. The first EOI selection draw under the new policy was to be held in May 2020 but was suspended due to closure of New Zealand borders and continue to remain suspended.


Decision to suspend EOI selections under Parent Visa Category was to be reviewed in 2021. However the planned review is now likely to take place by late 2022. The review will look at barriers to access including income threshold and the category will re-open once review is completed.


Parents impacted by the continued suspension of this category may wish to consider the following options:

  1. Parent Retirement Resident Visa
  2. Parent and Grandparent Visitor Visa
