do I need a visa?

If you plan to visit New Zealand for a short period, you must request an NZeTA before you travel if you travel on a passport from a country on the list of visa waiver countries and territories, and are visiting for up to 3 months — or, if you are a British citizen, up to 6 months.  You can:

  • visit family or friends
  • cruise or have a holiday
  • study or train for up to 3 months, in some circumstances

We gotta make it clear (the lawyers said so), visa restrictions change all the time, so make sure you check with the  if you have any questions or concerns. And whatever you do..... don't lie, you will be caught and you will be denied entry. 

working holiday visas

Working holiday visas are available to people from lots of different countries. They’re mainly for people aged 18 to 30, but for a few countries it’s 18 to 35. For many countries, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) offers a set number of visas each year — that is, a quota. If the quota is full, you’ll need to wait until the next year to apply.

You can stay for up to 12 months (or 23 months if you’re from the UK or Canada). You do not need to have a job before you arrive, but you do need to have a return ticket or enough money to get home.
