Getting offshore visa in New Zealand

Hey there,
This question is a bit premature as we haven't even got the tourist visa yet. But my South African partner and I are about to make an offshore spouse application, and then she will be travelling to Aus on a tourist visa and will need to fly over to New Zealand to get the visa granted and put in her passport. My question is, will New Zealand allow her to enter if she has a return flight to Australia, but no visa for Australia in her passport. Would a letter from a Case Officer stating that she's in NZ to get a visa be enough? Or would she need a flight back to South Africa?

Thanks for your help!

The way it's normally done Sambo is that you fly to New Zealand while there's still time left on the tourist visa and one thing to be aware of is that you should get a six months tourist visa just to allow plenty of time for the partner visa to be processed and also that she may even need to leave for NZ before hearing on the partner visa granting if she gets to the last week of the tourist visa and it has a No Further Stay condition on it.
In that case she would need to seek another tourist visa while in New Zealand to return or just hang out in NZ awaiting the partner visa grant.
