If you are a citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand, you do not need to apply for a visa to New Zealand but you must:
- Hold a valid ticket from New Zealand to a country where you have the right to enter
- Have sufficient money to support yourself during your stay in New Zealand
- Hold a passport valid for 3 months beyond the date you intend on leaving New Zealand
- Remain in New Zealand only for the time granted on your arrival
If you intend to stay in New Zealand longer than three months, you must apply for a visa prior to entering New Zealand.
