永久回头签，不需要移民监的永居身份 - 飞出国2019
新西兰是当前世界上唯一（或者说为数极少）的拥有永久回头签的国家，新西兰的永久回头签实际上叫 Permanent Resident Visa，缩写 PRV，是一种不需要在新西兰居住也不会丢失新西兰永居身份的签证类别。也就是还是移民身份但不需要移民监。2010年前后这类身份叫 IRRV （Indefinite Returning Resident Visa），现在统一 PRV，大陆一直叫永久回头签，永久绿卡。
加拿大和新西兰PR要么入籍（取消中国身份）来豁免居住要求，要么每5年都要累计注满2年。新西兰 PRV 比起澳洲和加拿大移民（PR）每5年要累计注满2年要灵活方便的多，持有无压力。
对于新西兰移民，移民申请人只需要在第一次获得移民身份（RV Resident Visa）的2年内每年注满 184 天就可以获得永久回头签（PRV），随后就可以在任何地方生活同时还保留有新西兰的移民身份。很多新西兰移民在获得新西兰 PRV 后会选择去其他地区工作甚至再办一个其他国家的移民。
当前，新西兰移民要求也比较高，获得新西兰雇主offer后才有希望直接获得新西兰移民身份（RV Resident Visa），新西兰雇主担保（猎头项目）和新西兰留学移民（优才项目）是获得新西兰移民身份的最快捷方式，其他还有创业移民方式。
获得新西兰移民身份（Resident Visa）后如果没法满足居住要求还可以通过其他四种证明对新西兰有贡献的方式获得 PRV。
- 已经在新西兰成功定居，包括已经自购房产超过12个月或近2年内工作9个月，同时主申在申请 PR 前1年在新西兰居住41天以上，其他家庭成员近2年每年在新居住184天
Permanent Resident Visas - New Zealand PRV
A Permanent Resident Visa is usually the next step after being granted a Resident Visa. While Resident Visas have travel conditions that only allow a person to re-enter New Zealand as a resident until a certain date, a Permanent Resident Visa allows indefinite re-entry to New Zealand.
If you were the principal applicant of the original residence application, you can obtain a Permanent Resident Visa if you:
- have held your resident visa for at least two years, and
- have met any conditions of your Resident Visa, and
- have shown a commitment to New Zealand in one of the five ways that meet our requirements.
Commitment to New Zealand - Criteria to be granted a Permanent Resident Visa
To be granted permanent residence, you need to show us you’re committed to living in New Zealand permanently.
There are five ways you can show us your commitment to living in New Zealand permanently. We need to see evidence of at least one of them.
Acceptable evidence of your commitment to living in New Zealand
1. You have spent enough time in New Zealand
You have spent 184 days or more in New Zealand as a resident in each of the two 12 month portions of the 24 months immediately preceding your application for permanent residence.
We’ll check our records of your travel movements.
2. You have New Zealand tax residence status
You are a tax resident in New Zealand if you:
- have been in New Zealand as a resident for 41 days or more in each of the two 12-month portions of the 2 years before you apply for permanent residence, and
- are assessed as having tax residence status for the 2 years before you apply for permanent residence.
If you have tax residence in another country, even if it’s one that New Zealand has a double tax agreement with, you can’t use your tax residence status there to show your commitment to New Zealand.
- a statement from Inland Revenue
- a completed Confirmation of Tax Resident Status endorsed by Inland Revenue.
3. You have invested in New Zealand
You have had NZ$1,000,000 invested in New Zealand in an acceptable investment for two years or more.
Acceptable evidence of the value and ownership of funds and/or assets can include:
- bank documents
- property deeds and reports
- share certificates
- business ownership documents and valuation reports.

You’ve either bought or started a business in New Zealand a year or more ago. The business must be trading successfully and of benefit to New Zealand in some way. If you bought into an existing business in New Zealand you must have at least a 25% share in the business.
