How can I get a Guardian of a Student Visitor Visa?

A Guardian of a Student Visitor Visa is a type of visitor visa that allows a legal guardian to look after a child while the child is studying in New Zealand on a Student Visa.

Depending on the age of the student or where they are studying they can only be granted a student visa if they are accompanied to New Zealand by their legal guardian.

A Guardian of a Student Visitor Visa holder cannot apply to change to certain types of work or student visa while in New Zealand, but they may work or study part time (certain conditions apply) if they obtain a Variation of Conditions.
