SAA visitors now need Visa for New Zealand

New Zealand Visa required by SA passport holders

Dear Agent,

In case you have not heard, ALL South African visitors to New Zealand will require visitor visas from 21 November this year.

These changes are being made as a result of an increase in the number of South African nationals who have been refused entry
at the New Zealand border in comparison to other visa waiver countries.

Currently, people from South Africa do not need to apply for a visitor visa before travelling to New Zealand, with genuine visitors
being granted a visa on arrival. As a result of the change all visitors from South Africa will need to obtain a visa before travelling
to New Zealand.

People who have booked tickets prior to this announcement on 03 October for travel on or after the 21 November should visit
the Immigration website to find out how to apply for their visa.
