    Default Parent residency visa

    Hi there,

    The new parent residency visa category is recently opened with new income requirements.

    I have few questions that I would like to clarify. We need to show 2 year income out of three years. Now my question is does it has to be financial year (1apr-31march) or can it be any 12 month period respectively?

    For example, If sam and his wife has salary of 160+ from 1st oct2018 to 30sep2019 for two years in a row respectively . does it count as 2 years income or is it have to be from 1april to 31st march income?

    Can anyone help me with this
    ?

    Ta.

    Nobody can tell you for certain until the detailed requirements are made public. The banner on the information sheet says this will be in February 2020. https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-...-resident-visa

    Thanks for the reply,
    Yes I understand this but was it possible to do so with last requirements before 2016? Any idea?

    I think it should not be financial year if you can show 24 months income if your income is monthly salary.

    Does this help?

    35061 (2019). Stuart Smith to the Immigration (Minister - Iain Lees-Galloway) (10 Oct 2019): Will sponsors be required to provide evidence of their annual income through Inland Revenue tax statements after a Parent Resident Visa application is lodged?
    Hon Iain Lees-Galloway (Immigration (Minister - Iain Lees-Galloway)) replied: Yes.

    So so it's not just from 1apr-31stmarch, two years, It can be another months from calender year?

    For example, If sam and his wife has salary of 160+ from 1st oct2018 to 30sep2019 for two years in a row respectively . does it count as 2 years income or is it have to be from 1april to 31st march income?

    We cannot confirm until we get detail instructions from immigration next year.
