Visa advice

HERDSA Conference 2019

Next Generation, Higher Education: Challenges, Changes and Opportunities

2-5 July 2019. Auckland, New Zealand

All overseas visitors are required to have a valid passport and, with the exception of delegates from visa-free countries (please see below), are required to have the appropriate visa – typically either a visitors visa or a visiting academics visa. For information on obtaining a visa, including necessary funds and health requirements, please explore visa options for visiting New Zealand.

We suggest that you allow for a minimum of six weeks to have your visa processed by Immigration New Zealand or the applicable New Zealand embassy or consulate in your country of residence.

Passports & Visas
When you arrive, you’ll need to ensure your passport is valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date, and if required, have a valid New Zealand visa.

You do not need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are:

  • A New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident, or
  • A UK citizen and/or passport holder (you can stay up to six months), or
  • A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months)

If you don’t meet the criteria above, then you will need to apply for a visitor visa.

Transiting through Australia

If your flight has a stop-over in Australia, you may be required to obtain a transit visa. Please review the Australian transit visa requirements or contact your nearest Australian Embassy for more information.

Biosecurity
In order to protect New Zealand and its environment, certain items are not allowed to be brought into the country, have restrictions for entry, or must be declared if they are deemed to present a biosecurity risk. These include food, plants, animal products and outdoor recreational equipment. You may risk a fine if you fail to comply. More information on biosecurity items to declare.

Vaccinations: No vaccinations are required to visit New Zealand.
