To visit New Zealand as a tourist, or to visit friends or family, you must hold a visitor visa. We can assist you in obtaining a visa to visit and travel.


Are you planning a trip to New Zealand?


One of the first things to consider is whether you need a visa for such a trip.


You may be from a country that is “visa-waived”, meaning you do not need to apply for a visa, as it is typically granted as a matter of course upon your arrival.
However, if you are not from a visa-waived country, or you have unusual personal circumstances (such as health or character concerns, or you are travelling for something other than a holiday) you will most likely need to apply for a visitor visa.


Talk to us about your reasons for visiting New Zealand, and we can advise on whether an application needs to be filed, and submit the appropriate application if necessary.
