Hi there,

Can anyone help me out with the below query, please?

I and my sister (both permanent resident) want to apply resident visa (tier 1) for our widowed mother. She is currently in NZ on a 3 yearsí parents visa.

Considering both her kids lives in NZ and being a widow, is there any chance she can apply for her residency? She has done her schooling/college all in English. Iím aware that immigration has stopped parentís resident category for 2 years but she has no one back home and would like to stay with us.

May be a long shot- but is there anything that we can do at all?
