Welcome to the realm of possibilities with the Religious Worker Resident Visa for New Zealand. If you've dedicated three years or more to religious work under a Religious Worker Work Visa and are ready to embark on a more enduring chapter, this residency option may be the key to your continued journey. This visa, contingent upon an offer of ongoing work and sponsorship from your religious organization, opens the doors to not just work but a life enriched with the essence of New Zealand.


With the Religious Worker Resident Visa, you gain the privilege to work, live, and study in New Zealand. Your commitment to religious service finds a continued purpose as you carry on your work under the auspices of the religious organization sponsoring you. Moreover, this visa extends its embrace to include your partner and dependent children aged 24 and under in your application, provided you meet the minimum income requirements or your religious organization is willing to sponsor them as well.


However, it's crucial to note that eligibility for this visa rests on the prerequisite of holding a valid Religious Worker Work Visa for a minimum of three years. Additionally, if you choose to include your partner and children in your application, they must meet the same stringent criteria for identity, health, character, and English language proficiency as required of you.


Embark on the next phase of your spiritual journey in New Zealand, where the Religious Worker Resident Visa serves as the bridge between dedication and residency, allowing you to weave your religious calling into the rich tapestry of this vibrant nation.
