New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship Visa
Families of Special Category visa (Subclass 444) holders will retain the option to apply for and obtain a New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship (Subclass 461) visa.
Existing Subclass 461 visa holders will maintain their visas validity until its expiration.
However, if the Subclass 444 visa holder obtains Australian citizenship, family members will no longer be eligible to apply for a Subclass 461 visa starting from the date of acquiring citizenship. In such cases, Australian citizens can explore alternative visa options to sponsor their family members, including options such as Partner Migration.
