Filipinos no longer need visas to transit New Zealand

Friday, 6/11/09

From 30 November 2009 Philippine nationals will no longer need transit visas to pass through New Zealand airports. Up until now Filipinos transiting New Zealand (for instance changing planes) needed to hold a transit visa. This requirement will not apply from 30 November.

From that date Filipinos won’t need a visa to transit New Zealand, provided they remain in the airport and their travel bookings show a stopover of no more than 24 hours. If they plan to stop over for more than 24 hours, or plan to leave the airport, they must apply for a visitor visa.
