    Question re-applying for work permit and sponsorship questions

    Hello,
    My partner came over to nz 18 months ago. After 6 months he applied for a work permit and I sponsored him under the partnership catagory. He now needs to re new his work permit. Does he have to go through everything again, medicals, police checks etc? Do I still have to sponsor him or can he just apply for a work permit on his own as he has a part time job? The company he works for offered to get his permit for him but he declined saying that I would sponsor him. Can anyone throw any light on the correct way to go about things. The nz immigration govt page is not particularly specific in this instance.

    Thanks

    Hi Helen

    To apply for a work permit on his own, I would imagine he would have to have a full time job rather than a part time one. There's something in the regs. about how many hours qualify for a WP. I think he could just renew his existing permit without going through all the rigmarole again. It's up to INZ whether they do renew it although, if there is a problem, perhaps his company could step in and sponsor him. There again, he might come up against the difficulty of it only being a part time job.
