Hi,

One of my friend is Indonesian citizen.
She is applying NZ PR and the process is still on-going.
After her NZ Permanent Residence visa is approved and put in her Indonesian passport, she plans to apply for German citizenship, since she is eligible for that.
The point is that Indonesia doesn't allow dual citizenship and therefore she must release her Indonesian nationality.

The questions she has:

  1. Can her NZ Permanent Residence visa be transferred from her Indonesia passport to her new German passport?
  2. After she gets her NZ Permanent Residence visa, how long can she be outside NZ without losing her NZ Permanent Residence? Can she stay outside NZ for e.g. 10 years without losing her NZ Permanent Residence?

Thanks.
