As a New Zealand citizen you won’t need a visa for Australia as you don’t plan to leave the airport and will only be there for a few hours. If you do choose to take a longer layover (8+ hours) or leave the airport you can get a SCV visa on arrival by filling out a landing card.
You don’t need a visa for Japan either as you are going for 90 days or less, ...
Nope, not at all. You're a Kiwi, and we can waltz in without even speaking to a border guard, if you have a smart passport (chip in it).
Example: Yesterday I came back from Japan to Sydney. 20 min after landing I was walking to the train. All I had to do was swipe my passport and declare some medicines.
When I moved here, I actually asked if there was ...
As a New Zealand citizen, you can travel to and stay in Australia for any length of time and for any reason. Since Australia needs a name for this category of visitor, they have something called a "Special Category Visa" (SCV) which is only issued to New Zealand citizens. There is no specific paperwork associated with this visa (just the normal passenger ...
NZ citizen here.
You don't need a visa for Australia as you're in transit, and even to visit don't require one.
As a tourist in Japan, you need a flight/boat trip/etc out of the country, but otherwise can have up to 90 days.
Source: Have visited, transited and lived in Aus, and visited Japan four times, on a NZ passport.
If you have only 6 hours from touchdown to takeoff, it's going to be really tight. The Maglev train is quick (maybe 15 minutes) to Longyang station, but you could easily wait 15-20 minutes for the next train. (As an aside, if you show your same day arrival/departure air tickets, you get a discount on the maglev.) You could take a taxi from Longyang, or the ...
For a stay in the transit area of less than 8 hours you do not need a visa. Courtesy KLM:

For border purposes, the Schengen Area functions as a single country, so flights between them are effectively domestic. When travelling by land, internal border checks between member states, while not the norm, have become more common lately, but during these no stamps or visas will be issued.
Even at the actual Schengen border, visas are only issued on ...
You, as the national of a visa-exempt country, may visit the Schengen Area for up to 90 days per 180-day period. Whether you hold more the one passport from the same country (it is legal in some situations) or hold passports from more than one country is irrelevant. You would still be the same person.
Another dual-citizen Kiwi here. Our government actually has pages on this, and whilst it's fine for you to travel on either passport, it's best to enter NZ when you return on your NZ passport - otherwise you're not technically a resident, and would have to have a visa and so on.

You can take a look at the Immigration Forum discussion on the same subject. Generally unless it's an emergency(medical, or similar) extension of VWP will not be granted.
You would need to contact the immigration lawyer to see if it is even possible and under what circumstances this could get removed. But my guess this ban is for life.
Now as far as ...
Starting from the 15th of March 2016 you'll need an eTA to transit or stay in Canada. This is true for nationals travelling on New Zealand, as well as Taiwanese passports. Quoting from the Canadian CIC website, below is the information for New Zealand citizens:
and for Taiwanese citizens:
You'll therefore need to secure an eTA to be able to layover ...
New Zealander here. I arrived for a friend's wedding in Tehran. I told them so, got a visa on arrival, entire process took about 20 minutes.
Your experience may vary, but it was very straightforward for myself, and my friend who was also on a Kiwi passport.
Yes you can. The second visit will be considered under "tourism". The official GOV.UK page states the following:
You won’t need a visa to come to the UK
However, you should bring the same documents you’d need to apply for a visa, to show to officers at the UK border.
(!) You may want to apply for a visa if you have a criminal record or you’ve ...
I'm a Kiwi too, and I assure you, you're totally fine to leave the airport.
Evidence? Just 6 weeks ago I was flying through Sydney enroute back to NZ, and had 10 or so hours to kill. I caught the train into town, met up with a couple of friends for lunch and wandered around a bit, and then headed back to the airport.
I didn't even need to collect my ...
Mexican nationals who reside in Mexico can apply for a border crossing card, which allows them to enter the US without a passport, but they must remain within 25 miles of the border (55 miles in New Mexico). The card also serves asa B-1/B-2 visa when it is presented in combination with a passport, so it is easy to confuse border crossing cards with B-1/B-2 ...
Yes, you can book your ticket with the New Zealand passport and use the Taiwan passport to enter the US. You could also book the ticket with the Taiwan passport and use the Taiwan passport to enter the US, which is likely to be simpler, as the airline won't get confused by your having two passports (I've never known an airline to be confused by that, but it'...
No. Under the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement you will be issued a Special Category visa (subclass 444), which is valid for your entire length of stay in Australia, however long that is so long as you remain a New Zealand citizen, and so long as you meet the health and character considerations.
If I were you, I would just submit a new application for the family permit, including the passport copy. The application is free of charge, after all.
Your refusal even implies that you should do this (emphasis added):
whilst your application falls for refusal on the grounds of no sponsor ID I am satisfied that you are in a durable relationship akin to ...
Yes, you can. The "two-month gap" rule between tourist visas was abolished for most nationalities (including NZ and UK) in 2012, which means that as long as your new passport has more than 6 months validity, you're welcome back. Even if they did still care, in practice, they're unlikely to be able to match your two passports together.
timatic has (re Thailand):
Passports issued to nationals of New Zealand must be valid
for the period of intended stay.
for holders of normal passports;
Emergency and temporary passports issued to nationals of New Zealand must be valid for at least 6 months from date of arrival.
So I think your answer is "Yes", unless your ...
I think you can take the Maglev train, which takes you to a metro station not so near downtown (or much else of interest), and then take a taxi from there. Should be well under an hour each way, so you should have a couple hours comfortably downtown provided customs isn't too backed up and your incoming flight is on time.
Ignore touts and go to the ...
I can only help answering your second question.
Do I need a visa to enter China? (NZ passport)
According to this, no you don't need a visa. (Answered just a few seconds before your edit, so moderators may feel free to remove my answer as useless :))
In law, the phrase "without prejudice" basically means that any rights, privileges or immunities involved are not affected by the act.
Thus, when your document is cancelled without prejudice, it means that there was no negative impact to you attached to the cancellation and others who see the cancelled document should not infer that anything negative ...
It's hardly necessary to go to Costa Rica (as Karlson suggested) to re-apply. This is not a visa. I think folks are getting the terms VWP and ESTA confused. I assume that the ESTA has been cancelled. One applies for an ESTA online.
Mine was cancelled a few months ago. I received an email from CBP:
There has been an update to your ESTA Travel Authorization ...
As per Timatic, the database used by Airlines:
Transit without visa (TWOV) is not possible at Fuzhou (FOC), Shenzhen (SZX) and Yanji (YNJ).
TWOV generally means transiting without exiting the transit area. SZX, however, does not have a dedicated transit corridor in the first place, nor does it have any short-visit TWOV arrangement whereby you're allowed ...
Is this also a requirement under the B2 Visa?
The answer is no, but I can understand the confusion. CBP never normally ask for sight of return tickets (these prove very little) but it is not really CBP you need worry about as compliance with immigration documentation is largely left to the airlines - under threat of a fine if they make a mistake in allowing ...
Upon entering the US you will have to prove that you have sufficient funds to sustain yourself for the entire duration of stay in the US. Much to our disappointment, the CBD does not specify how much is "enough funds". There is no fixed amount per day. Indeed, such an amount depends on spending habits, accomodation costs, transportation costs, ...
You haven't said whether this is a one-way trip or a round trip.
If it is a one way trip:
Book your tickets using your US passport details.
When checking in, the airline will want to see your NZ passport (because your US passport won't have a long-term visa for New Zealand in it).
On arriving in NZ, show immigration your NZ passport.
If it is a round trip ...
I think I can answer some of your questions.
I wanted him to use the Thai passport for the trip to Thailand soon and not his NZ one. The idea was that he would show his NZ passport when we are coming back to the airline but it would have no departure stamp on it from NZ.
So three different things: the airline, Thai immigration and NZ immigration.
I have lived in India and Pakistan, even when at war with one another, and made several business trips to each of India and Bangladesh. I have never noticed the slightest issue arising from these visits. Admittedly this was for travel on a passport that was from none of the three countries. The only difference I am aware of was being hoiked out of a long ...
