Can you receive VISA in a different country

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Does anyone have a definitive answer on this... Can you be in a country other than the one you applied in when your visa is finally granted i.e

 

Apply in London but be visiting NZ when visa is issued?

 

Many thanks!

Which visa are you applying for ?

 

Usually, yes you can apply for a visa in London and be in NZ at the time of grant. You don't have to be in the country you applied for the visa. The only thing is that you cannot be in 'Australia' the country for which you applied for a visa. If you have applied for an onshore visa, you may be required to be onshore for a grant as well.

Thanks. Applying for a spousal visa (my husband) and just trying to come up with a contingency plan if it is not granted in time (early October). We are thinking he could perhaps fly out to OZ on a tourist Visa and then pop over to NZ when the visa is ready.

Hi Sheila,

It's perfectly possible, yes, but do make sure you let your Case Office know where you will be and how to contact you before you go. Best of luck. :smile:
