The NEW ZEALAND visitor’s visa allows you to holiday in New Zealand for up to nine months. Before traveling to New Zealand, you need to make sure your passport is valid for at least three months longer than your expected departure date. During your stay, you’ll need enough money to support yourself and everyone included in your application. While you’re here, you can enjoy New Zealand’s scenery, adventure, culture, and friendly people.
If you have a biometric ordinary passport (or electronic passport) and are over 12 years old, you may be able to use New Zealand Customs e-Gate service. This allows you to complete your Customs and Immigration checks faster so you can get on with enjoying your visit to New Zealand.
