Passports & Visas
When you arrive, you’ll need to ensure your passport is valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date, and if required, have a valid New Zealand visa.
You do not need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are:
- A New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident, or
- A UK citizen and/or passport holder (you can stay up to six months), or
- A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months)
If you don’t meet the criteria above, then you will need to apply for a Visitor Visa. Please ensure you apply for your visa well in advance of your travel and we do not recommend making non-refundable arrangements until your visa has been granted.
