Australian Resident Visa

Australian citizens and permanent residents can visit, study, work and live in New Zealand. They don’t need to apply for a visa before travelling and can be granted a New Zealand resident visa when they arrive if they meet the character and entry permission requirements.

This visa allows to:

  • Live, work, and study in New Zealand.
  • Travel to and from New Zealand as often, but each time the applicant leaves New Zealand their Resident Visa will expire.

Visa eligibility conditions:

  • Entry permission: An individual must apply for entry permission when arrive in New Zealand.
  • Status: The applicant must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Australian temporary residents aren’t eligible for this visa.

In addition to the above-mentioned conditions, there are other factors and criteria to be taken into consideration.

First of all the applicant has to meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Must be in good health
  • Must be of good character
  • Must have good English language capabilities
  • Must provide a proof of identity

If the applicant leaves New Zealand, their resident visa will expire – they can apply for a variation of travel conditions to allow them travel without affecting their New Zealand residence status.

An individual can apply for a resident visa each time of arrival in New Zealand, but their New Zealand residence won’t be considered continuous.
