Subclass 461 New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship visa.
This visa is for a person who is not a New Zealand citizen, but is a member of a family unit* of a New Zealand citizen.
It lets you live and work in Australia for five years, while a partner of the New Zealand citizen.
The cost of the subclass 461 visa was $365 at July 2020. This is substantially less than the cost of a Permanent Partner Visa for the partner of an Australian citizen, at $7,715.
This subclass 461 visa will NOT lead to permanent residency in Australia, but can be renewed onshore as required, while in a relationship with an eligible New Zealand citizen.
