I have a 14-hour layover in New Zealand before I have a connecting flight to Melbourne, Australia. Do I need a visa if I wanted to leave the airport and go to a hotel? I am a Canadian citizen with the Canadian passport.


Canada is on New Zealand’s list of visa waiver countries. Canadian citizens don’t need a visa to enter New Zealand for short visits of up up to 3 months https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/about-visa/transit-visa
