Customer Question

My granddaughter has been living and working (semi-skilled employment) in New Zealand years. She now realizes, having taken legal advice, that it is unlikely that she will be able to successfully apply in NZ so it likely that when her present Visa expires she will (at age 30) have to return to the UK where her mother and step-father still live. She has a partner who also presently works in NZ on a Visa under her sponsorship and who, if she leaves NZ, would also have to leave. I have two questions. What benefits could she receive whilst seeking work in the UK ? Would it be possible partner - who has no particular labour skills and who is a citizen of Tonga - to live in the UK ?
