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

A Guardian of a Student Visitor Visa is a type of visitor visa which 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 for certain types of work or student visa while in New Zealand, but they may work or study part time if they obtain a Variation of Conditions (certain conditions apply).
