» Visa to Visit New Zealand
If you wish to visit New Zealand for a period longer than 3 months as a tourist, you will need to apply for a Visitor's Visa.
You may apply for a Visitor's Visa if:
Visitor's Visas are valid for 9 months in an 18 month period. Under certain circumstances you may be eligible to extend your 9 month stay by a further 3 months.
To extend your Visitor's Visa, you will have to show that during your stay:
If you have already stayed in New Zealand for 9 months or more, you will need to remain out of the country for the same amount of time you visited (or longer) before you can again return as a visitor.
You must also be able to meet all health and character requirements to be granted a visa for your visit to New Zealand.
