Visa requirements

Visiting medical students need to obtain a Work Permit under the Students and Trainees Policy for entry to New Zealand. In order to obtain this permit you are required to provide supporting documentation. Regulations may vary and you should obtain full instructions, appropriate forms and the latest information from your nearest New Zealand Diplomatic Post.

Visit the New Zealand Immigration website to find out more about student and trainee work visa.

It is essential that you start to complete these procedures at least three months before your arrival in New Zealand.
