Unless you are a New Zealand citizen, resident or from a visa-free country (Japan is a visa-free country) you will probably be required to have a valid visa before entering New Zealand. Visitors who are not required to have a visa will still need to show:
- A return travel ticket or evidence of onward travel arrangements
- Evidence that you have sufficient money available to fund your visit
- Completed passenger arrival card
For further information about visas and other immigration requirements, please visit the New Zealand Immigration Service website at www.immigration.govt.nz or visit one of their branch offices.
