Australians in New Zealand
Australian citizens and permanent residents have similar rights and responsibilities in New Zealand as New Zealand citizens, depending on whether they are visiting or living in the country. Some special arrangements have been made for Australians in New Zealand.
If you are travelling to New Zealand on an Australian passport, there is no requirement that it be valid for any set period of time after you arrive or depart the country. However, if you are visiting, you should avoid the potential for any complications and ensure that your Australian passport will not need renewal during your stay in New Zealand.
Contact details for Australian representatives in New Zealand are available on the New Zealand Minsitry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website. The website of the Australian High Commission in Wellington is www.australia.org.nz
