Hey Malkit bhaji,
I am on resident Visa, I got my residency one and a half years ago. My wife came to New Zealand after I got my residency. First, she got a visitor Visa and then work visa for one year. Now I will apply for her residency. Does she need to do any English test for her application?
It will depend on the dates of your marriage and the date when you applied for your residence.If you were already married to your wife at the time you applied for your residence under Skilled Migrant Residence (I am assuming that you got your residence under SMC) then she will still need to meet the English language requirements. If you got married after your residence was granted then she doesn’t need to meet English language requirements.
