Hi everyone,

My wife and I now live and work in New Zealand - I have an Essential Skills Work Visa and she was awarded the corresponding visa as a partner of a worker. When the visas were issued, there were no comments or referrals in terms of our medical certificates. Now, having applied for another Visa, INZ have said my wife's original medical now needs to be referred to a medical assessor. We're not sure how this can be, or the legal basis for that, given that her health was deemed acceptable for the original application and nothing has changed since.

Anyone have any advice or comment please?
