Visitor Visa

Planning a visit to New Zealand? Whether you’re coming for a vacation, to visit family, or for business purposes, navigating the visa process can be complex.

Why choose a Visitor Visa?

Flexible Stay: Visitor visas allow you to stay in New Zealand for up to 9 months in an 18-month period, giving you ample time to explore much of what the country has to offer. While you cannot work, you are allowed to study for up to 3 months.
Multiple Entries: With a visitor visa, you can request for a multiple enter visa which allows you to leave and re-enter New Zealand multiple times within the validity period of your visa, making it convenient for travellers with multiple destinations or travel plans.
Business Opportunities: If you’re looking to explore business opportunities in New Zealand, a visitor visa allows you to attend meetings, conferences, and explore potential partnerships.

What are the eligibility criteria for a Visitor Visa?

To be eligible for a visitor visa to New Zealand, you must:

• Have a valid passport.
• Demonstrate that you intend to visit New Zealand for a specific purpose, such as tourism, visiting family or friends, or attending a business conference.
• Show that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in New Zealand.
