How can bonus points be claimed through a partner?

Points based on your partnership could be claimed, subject to certain conditions.

Provided your partner is included in your Skilled Migrant Application and you satisfy the minimum requirements for partnership recognition, you may be eligible to receive bonus points for your Expression of Interest (EOI).

What are the options for claiming bonus points?

If your partner possesses a Bachelor Degree or higher qualification, you could claim up to 20 bonus points. However, your partner must meet the same minimum English requirements as the principal applicant.

If your partner is already working in skilled employment in New Zealand or has a job offer that is skilled, you may be eligible to claim 20 points. If you meet the criteria and need bonus points to satisfy the threshold, seek an assessment from one of our Licensed Immigration Advisers today.
