I recently renewed my passport (Brazil). I also have an expired passport, which has my New Zealand visa (permanent resident). I am planning to visit New Zealand.

Since my valid New Zealand visa is in my old/expired passport, do I need to renew/transfer my New Zealand visa or can I simply travel with valid visa in old passport?

  • I don't know what the case is for new zealand but in some countries "permanent residence" can be less permanent than the name implies. – Peter Green Mar 13 '18 at 21:12

If you have renewed your passport (because it has expired, was lost/stolen or your name has changed), you need to transfer your valid visa into your new passport before you use it to travel. This applies regardless of whether you have a physical visa label or an e-visa or other label-less visa.
