    Default Permanent Residence Visa Question


    Not sure if this is the right section to ask for Permanent Residence visa application? As I can't find any other section about this.

    History I have gotten my residence visa with just travel condition.

    I do know that the travel condition start countdown for 2 years when I made the first entry. And I had read the requirement for Permanent Residence visa a few time and I know there are 5 different type of requirement you can fulfill either 1 of the 5 requirements.

    The most straight forward will be staying 184 days for each year for the continue 2 years.

    I'm just wondering if there are such case or reason INZ will still reject your application after you had met 1 of the 5 requirements?

    Cause due to my works and family I have been fly in and out of NZ. I did once call up INZ and seek their advise how do they consider 1 days count. Example they consider 1 days must be 24 hrs in the country or what. Cause it is always the case where you fly in at let say 7AM on 1 Jan and do you count that day as 1 day. What the INZ officer had informed me is that so long you step it on that day it is counted as 1 day regardless of the time.

    So I have been counting and seem like I manage to stay enough for year 1 which is total of 186 days. Now I'm working hard toward my year 2.

    Please anyone knowledgable enough to advise and correct me if there is any mistake?

    INZ will evaluate the preponderance (overall) of evidence that you are making New Zealand your home. Travel for work is not usually an issue.
