All conditions

With this visa you can

  • Come to New Zealand for medical treatment or consultation you’ve already been accepted for.
  • Stay in New Zealand until it’s safe for you to travel.

Things to note

  • Even if you’re from a visa waiver country, you have to apply for a visa to come to New Zealand for medical treatment or consultation.
  • If your need for treatment or consultation is urgent or an emergency situation, contact us - we may be able to make special arrangements for you.
  • If your condition requires it, you may be escorted by a family member, friend or doctor– they’ll need to apply for their own visa.
