Requirements for those Visiting New Zealand for a 6 - 12 Month Period

General

All applicants over the age of 11 who intend to be in New Zealand for more than six months but less than 12 months and have risk factors for tuberculosis (TB) will need to undergo a TB chest X-ray.

People have risk factors for TB if they are citizens of countries that are not ‘low incidence countries for TB’ or in the last five years they have spent a total of three months or more in a country that is not a ‘low incidence TB country’. For a list of countries that are considered low incidence for TB refer to the Health Requirements Leaflet.

Turkey

As Turkey is not a ‘low incidence TB country’, all Turkish citizens who intend to be in New Zealand for more than six months but less than 12 months must provide a 'Temporary Entry X-Ray Certificate (NZIS 1096)' with their applications.

This certificate must be filled in by one of the Panel Doctors approved by Immigration New Zealand. The certificate must be accompanied by all medical and laboratary reports provided by the doctor.

Jordan and Israel

Jordan and Israel are both 'low incidence TB countries'. (See paragraph 2 above)

You can find a list of Panel Doctors for your country on the Immigration New Zealand site.

Applications where the certificate is neccesary but not provided or the certificate is incomplete will be returned to the applicant without being processed.

For more information on health requirements, including the 'Health Requirements Leaflet', please go to the Immigration New Zealand website.
