    Post Is it necessary to change my last name to apply work-parntership visa

    Greetings everyone. I'm from Philippines and my husband is a kiwi. I've been to New Zealand for 2 months and we got married there. Now I'm back here in Phil. and we are advised to apply this kind of visa "Work-Partnership Visa (joining your partner in NZ- Family stream). Now, I have my passport its on my single name, do i need to change my last name to his last name? If I don't, is it a hindrance for not getting my work visa? I need your advices guys...please help me. Thank you very much :)

    I would think it was extremely unlikely that you changing your name would have any bearing on the assessment of your Visa in New Zealand. Most of the people I know retain their own name when married in New Zealand.
