Specific Instructions

Completing this sponsorship form does not guarantee the approval of the residence application for the person(s) you are sponsoring. Residence applicants must meet all the requirements of the category they are applying under before they will be granted residence in New Zealand.

Sponsorship Undertakings

Suppose the residence application of the person(s) you are sponsoring is approved. In that case, it will be a condition of their visa that you, the sponsor (and the second sponsor, if applicable), will meet the sponsorship undertakings for a certain number of years after residence is granted. If you do not meet these undertakings, the visa holder may become liable for deportation. The details of the undertakings you must agree to and their duration are explained in this form.
