New Zealand passport holders

New Zealand passport holders should tell the immigration officer at the border that they have a Partner visa. If you do not tell them, you might be granted a Special Category visa (subclass 444). If you are on the temporary subclass 820 visa and this happens, you will not be eligible for the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801).
