Requirements for International Visitors entering New Zealand
All overseas visitors are required to have a valid passport and, with the exception of attendees from visa-free countries (please see below), are required to have the appropriate visa.
Visit www.immigration.govt.nz for visa application information.
We suggest that you allow for a minimum of two months to have your visa processed.
People from some countries do not need a visitor visa to enter New Zealand, however, they are still required to provide:
- travel tickets or evidence of onward travel arrangements, and
- evidence of funds for maintenance
For the current list of Visa-free countries, visit the Immigration New Zealand website.
Transiting through Australia
If your flight includes a stopover in Australia, you may require a transit visa from the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Visit www.border.gov.au or contact your nearest Australian Embassy for more information.
