A New Zealand warrant for arrest would only apply in New Zealand. There would be no jurisdiction or power to exercise an arrest warrant issued by a New Zealand court in any overseas country. If someone wants to enforce an arrest warrant overseas from New Zealand, the only way is to get a warrant issued by a court in that country, which is generally done by an application.
