Visitors to New Zealand
People visiting New Zealand for 12 months or less, and wishing to bring a firearm into the country for their use, need to obtain a visitor's firearms licence and an import permit. The licence can only be applied for, in person, in New Zealand but the details of the proposed importation can be confirmed in advance.
Intended applicants need to send or bring copies of:
- the combined visitor's licence and import permit application
- the photo page of their passport
- evidence of being a bona fide shooter in their country of origin (their home country firearms licence/permit/ certificate).
