If you are a U.S. citizen, you are eligible for a visa waiver and do not need a visa for tourist stays of three months or less. You must have a passport that is valid for at three months beyond your planned departure from New Zealand.You don’t need a visa before your departure.You will need the following:be in good health
be of good character
be bona fide applicants
be citizens of a visa waiver country
have enough money to live on while in New Zealand
have a ticket out of New Zealand to a country they have the right to enter.All you need is to is a round trip ticket to New Zealand. They will stamp your passport upon entry.Remember, your departure date must be no later than 3 months after the date you arrive in New Zealand.You’ll also need to make sure you have enough money for your stay and be able to access that money while you’re in New Zealand.I hope this clarifies. Please don’t forget to rate the question with stars. We as attorneys are not employees of Just Answer and are not paid unless you rate the question.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
