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
