New Zealand courts generally only have jurisdiction over property in New Zealand. The act says it only applies to people ordinarily resident in New Zealand, but if they are resident here, and own property overseas, they could appoint someone to administer their property and it would apply to all property. You would need to have the EPOA possibly notarised to get it used overseas.
