    She may be entitled to use the NZ healthcare system,
    depending on the length of time for which she has held her visa and how long it runs. https://www.health.govt.nz/new-zeala...-years-or-more
    If your partner becomes pregnant with a child of yours, she will be entitled to maternity care from the NZ health service, whether or not she is entitled to health care in her own right. https://www.health.govt.nz/new-zeala...ligible-person
