British citizens can travel to New Zealand for tourism purposes for up to 6 months under the visa waiver system. You must be able to provide evidence, if requested, of a ticket out of New Zealand to a country that you have a right to enter and enough money for your stay. You must also be in good health and of good character. If you intend to seek medical treatment whilst in New Zealand you must apply for an appropriate visa.

If travelling under the visa waiver system, you do not need to apply in advance but just complete the arrival card when you get there.

Please visit the New Zealand immigration website for further information.
