    Default Extension of Visitor Visa

    My visitor visa is expiring in June, whats the process in extending it? What would be easier, partner sponsored visit, family sponsored (my resident brother), or ill extend it on my own? I got the 5 month visitor visa by myself

    If you now have evidence that you have been living with your partner for around three months (or more), that is probably your ONLY choice out of what you have mentioned as you want to stay long-term in New Zealand.

    Your brother might offer to sponsor you financially, but there is no way for him to sponsor you for a visa. (There used to be, but that ended many years ago now.) A visitor's visa is ONLY for people making a temporary stay with a plan to return to life and work in their home country afterwards.

    See old threads here with discussion and examples about evidence of living together.
