I am a Filipino working in Japan (with Philippines Passport). I read somewhere that Japan is waived for NZ visa. I want to visit New Zealand but I do not have any idea whether I need a visa to do that.

    Eligibility for visa free access to NZ depends only on your nationality, not on where you happen to reside at any given moment. Commented May 14, 2013 at 10:51

Yes, you will need a visa. Only Japanese passport holders (and holders of passports from other visa-waiver countries) can take advantage of a waived visa, not people who work in Japan under a foreign passport.


The IATA has an online resource to answer these type of questions. It seems (after entering some random data), that you need a visa.
