Visa Waiver for Visiting New Zealand
New Zealand welcomes visitors from all walks of life and provides a diverse range of activities to see and do while your here, but before we whet your appetite we need to get you here.
Not all visitors to New Zealand need to apply for a visa before getting on a plane to start your holiday, some countries are part of New Zealand’s Visa Waiver Program which allows you to arrive in New Zealand and apply for a visa at the border.
Depending on how long you intend on being in New Zealand will also affect whether you need to apply for a visa before you leave your home country.
Generally the maximum amount of time you will be granted a Visitor Visa is 9 months.
