Visa applications

The Immigration New Zealand website (external link) provides comprehensive information in English about visa requirements when coming to New Zealand. 

How to submit your application

Visa applications should be submitted on the Immigration online website (external link). If you are not able to submit an ONLINE application, you are able to submit a paper based visa application to:

  • The Tehran Visa Application Centre if you live in Iran
  • The Karachi Visa Application Centre if you live in Pakistan.

The contact details for the visa application centres can be found at: Office and Fees Finder (external link) and fee finder.

Electronic visas are now granted to travellers to New Zealand. However, travellers must still submit their passports for scanning upon instruction from Immigration New Zealand.
