Entry requirements for CANADIAN passport holders:
- Canadians must present a passport to visit New Zealand, which must be valid for at least three months beyond the date of expected departure from that country. Prior to travelling, ask your transportation company about its requirements related to passport validity, which may be more stringent than the country's entry rules.
- Tourist visa: Not required (for stays of up to 90 days)
- Business visa: Required
- Student visa: Required
- An onward or return ticket, a visa for the next destination (if needed) and proof of sufficient funds (NZ$1,000 per person per month, or NZ$400 per person per month if you have proof of prepaid accommodation) are required to visit New Zealand.
- A departure tax of NZ$25 is levied on international flights for passengers aged 12 or over, except at the international airports in Auckland and Christchurch, where this fee is included in the airline ticket price. A small fee may be charged for domestic departures.
- Visitors are required to hold proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay.
- Visitors are required to hold documents for their next destination.
- If you plan to go abroad, you should purchase the best travel insurance you can afford before you leave Canada. Your travel insurance should include health, life and disability coverage that will help you avoid large expenses, such as the cost of hospitalization or medical treatment outside Canada. If you are flying, being insured for flight cancellation, trip interruption, lost luggage and document replacement will save you from major disruptions and additional costs. If you are travelling by car, make sure you have driver and vehicle coverage in case you have an accident abroad.
