I'm studying in New Zealand and want to have my partner and children with me

Your family will need to apply for visas of their own in order to be in New Zealand with you.

If you want your partner (spouse or de facto) to join you in New Zealand, they may apply for a Partner of a Student Work Visa or a Partner of a Student Visitor Visa, provided that they meet certain policy requirements.
