Subclass 461 New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship Visa

The subclass 461 New Zealand citizen family relationship visa is a five year temporary visa that allows someone who is not a New Zealand citizen to live in Australia with a family member (i.e. a spouse or de facto partner) who is a New Zealand citizen and who holds a Special Category subclass 444 visa.

New Zealand citizens who arrived in Australia on or before 26 February 2001 are classified as Eligible New Zealand Citizens and are unconditional Australian permanent residents. New Zealand citizens who arrived in Australia after 26 February 2001 are granted a New Zealand special category subclass 444 visa which allows them to stay in Australia indefinitely as temporary residents.

The subclass 461 New Zealand citizen family relationship visa can be renewed every five years.

In the event of a relationship breakdown the holder of a subclass 461 New Zealand citizen family relationship visa is eligible to renew their subclass 461 visa provided they are not in a new relationship.
