Visa Free Countries

People who hold a current resident return visa issued by the government of Australia; and citizens of countries with whom NZ has negotiated visa free status are exempt from having to obtain a temporary visa.  Most visa free applicants will be granted on arrival, visas for visits up to 3 months.

Visa-free visitors must show either return air tickets or tickets for travel from NZ to another country for which a visa is held or not required. Evidence of sufficient funds for personal support for the duration of the stay in NZ will also be required.
