subclass 461

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a NZ citizen and my wife has got this 461 visa 2 years back and now we would like to move to Australia. She travelled before on a visitor visa, including myself (NZ citizen). After getting the 461 visa can she travel alone to Australia and secure a job or do we have to travel together. I would appreciate if someone can please help me with this query.

It is my understanding that 461 visa holders can only travel with a family member who is a NZ citizen.

I can't be definete about this but that is how I read this paragraph from the IMMI website.

Family Members

 

 

 

 

 

New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship (Temporary) Visa (Subclass 461)

 

 

How this Visa Works

 

This visa allows non-New Zealand citizens to travel to and live in Australia with a New Zealand citizen family member who is a Special Category visa holder.

 

I suggest that you either send a PM to one of the migration agents here on PIO or alternatively ring DIAC and ask them.

Good Luck.

I have spoken to the DIAC and they have advise that we can live and work irrespectively. So it is good that my wife can now visit Aus.
