    Default Other ways to move to NZ (Without Vista)??

    Sorry for such a bland question.

    My question is, can someone move to New Zealand without a work visa or getting married?

    If I wanted to move there with money and just buy a lot and house, is there an easier way?

    Thank you all in advance.

    You wouldn't be able to stay in NZ long term without a relevant visa. There are several types available but finding the correct one to suit you is not always an easy matter. For a start, you don't need to get married to stay in NZ (under Partnership policy, I assume you mean), you can just live together, but there are certain criteria to conform to first to make sure you qualify to apply. If you don't have a partner or family who is already in NZ and who is elegible to sponsor you, you would need some kind of visa that might involve getting a job offer first e.g. a work permit or Work to Residence visa. If you have certain skills that are badly needed in the country, you can apply under the Skilled Migrant Category. If, as you say, you just want to move there with money you could look at the Investor Category.

    In view of all the options available and not knowing your whole situation, perhaps you could look through the Immigration New Zealand website first, if you haven't already. It saves me prattling on and offering information that may be of no use to you at all. The INZ website is not the easiest of sites to negotiate but, if you have any questions, you can post them on here and we'll try to talk you through them
