    Default Do I need to apply for another RRV?

    When I was awarded my PR I also had one RRV put in my passport. I used this when I returned to NZ earlier this year. I will need to come back to NZ hopefully soon (when the house sells). Will I need to apply for another RRV or can I get in on a visitors visa? I will only be staying about 2 weeks.

    Hi Nicky,

    Do you know when your current RRV expires? It is valid for 2 years and is multi-entry. If it is still in force, you would be able to come back in, otherwise you could just get a visit visa as long as you don't intend working. Once your 2 years is up and you aren't intending to return to NZ to live, you probably wouldn't be granted another RRV and would have to resort to using visit visas again as your PR would become invalid.

    No - they are all back here in the UK. Being apart was just too much. We are spread around family though - just waiting for the house to sell & OH to get a job. Either one will mean we can rent here. Miss the scenery though :(
