New Zealand Visa Process – Quick Overview

A New Zealand citizen may travel to, enter, and remain in New Zealand at any time without the need for a visa. However, if you do not hold a New Zealand passport you may only travel to New Zealand when you hold a valid visa or when a visa waiver applies.

A visa also gives you the right – should you be granted entry permission on arrival in New Zealand – to enter and remain in New Zealand. It is important to understand that obtaining a visa itself is not a guarantee for entry to New Zealand.

When you want to obtain a visa you need to apply for one. This process involves completing and sending an application to Immigration New Zealand; Immigration Officers process each application and decide whether or not to grant a visa. Before sending your application to Immigration New Zealand you may ask a professional – a Licensed Immigration Adviser such as ExperieNZ Immigration Services – to assist you and give advice on your situation.
