    As stated previously, I'm not a resident so your point isn't valid in t his case, thanks.

    Semantics. Your visa status means you are entitled to certain Centrelink benefits and hers doesn't.

    Two non residents, married with a child, should have the same benefits available. The 461 visa being a 'NZ Family Members Visa' should have the same benefits as the 444 visa automatically given to the NZ Citizen. You can call it semantics but it's obviously a stuff up in the system but that's nothing new.

    Anyway, I will simply claim the baby bonus and the family tax benefit instead, slightly less and better than nothing.

    In regards to PR, I really can't see any benefit in myself outlaying the 3k to apply now as it won't benefit me in any way.
