I'm Dutch and want go to New Zealand as a tourist for two to three weeks.
Do I need a visa?
No, citizens of the EU do not need a visa to visit New Zealand for up to 90 days.
If you are between 18 and 30 years old, you can apply for a Working Holiday Visa which allows you to stay and work for up to 12 months.
If you want to stay longer than that, you will have to apply for a different visa.
The answer is, "no". According to the New Zealand Tourism's "Visas and Immigration" page:
Holidaying in New Zealand
You do not need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are:
- A New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident,
- A UK citizen and/or passport holder (you can stay up to six months), or
- A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months).
If you don’t meet the above, then you’ll need a visitor visa, which allows you to holiday in New Zealand for up to nine months. If you’re applying as an individual, the easiest and cheapest way to apply for a visitor visa is online. If you’re travelling with a partner, family or group, you should submit a paper application.
The Netherlands is one of around 60 countries that does have a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand.
