    Default Resident to PR?

    hi there,

    so I know that to be able to apply for permanent residence, we have to at least be in NZ for 184 days in each of the (2) years.

    does and should this apply to both the primary and secondary applicant(partner)?

    Or is this only applicable to the primary one?

    In most circumstances, the criteria is only applied to the principal applicant, and non-principal applicants will be granted a Permanent Resident Visa if (and only if) the principal applicant is granted one. There are exceptions though; see RV1.20 for the ways in which eligibility for non-principal applicants can be determined.
