Visa applications can no longer be lodged with the New Zealand Embassy in Buenos Aires.

Applications are only required from people who need a visa (e.g. student, work, transit, resident etc) to travel to New Zealand. Visitors from visa waiver countries (external link), including Argentina and Uruguay, can continue to travel to New Zealand visa free under certain conditions:

  • return or onward air ticket for a date within the three-month period
  • evidence of sufficient funds for the visit
  • a passport valid for at least three months beyond the planned departure date from New Zealand.

All visa enquiries and applications for New Zealand visas should be sent to the New Zealand Visa Application Centre in Washington DC.
