    For the Temporary Retirement Visitor Visa in New Zealand, the applicant must be at least 66 years old.  The application can include a partner. The visa provides 2 years of stay in New Zealand. You must keep at least NZ $750,000 invested in acceptable investments in NewZealand for 2 years.  You must nominate the type, location and value of the funds and/or assets you intend to invest. If you own an investment jointly with your partner, you can claim the full value of the investment, as long as you and your partner are in a recognized partnership. In addition, you must have NZ $500,000 to meet living expenses and an annual income of NZ $60,000.

    New Zealand is closed at the moment and immigration is not working. This is a complicated type of application and I suggest that you obtain the services of a professional.
