Visas for New Zealand
The Embassy in Madrid does not have an Immigration department therefore we cannot provide you with information about entry requirements or the different visa options available for New Zealand. All visas are applied for online at www.immigration.govt.nz(external link) and should you have any further questions about the application process, we recommend contacting the Immigration Contact Centre(external link) (+64 9914 4100). If you need personalised immigration advice, you can see the Immigration website(external link) for a list of licensed immigration advisers and lawyers.
