New Zealand citizenship

There are no restrictions on New Zealand citizens also holding the citizenship of another country (i.e. to be dual national or citizens).

Some countries, however, do not allow their citizens to hold the citizenship of another country (i.e. to be dual nationals or citizens).

The New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs does not advise foreign governments about citizenship applications it receives.

New Zealanders wishing to acquire the citizenship of another country need to investigate whether dual citizenship is an option with the government of the country in which they wish to gain citizenship.
