Two Countries - One Visa



You will need one visa only if you plan to travel to Australia and New Zealand between 26 January and 5 April 2015.

Australia and New Zealand will host 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Eligible visitors will only need to apply for an Australian visa to travel to and between both countries for the period of 26 January and 5 April 2015. New Zealand will grant a three month visitor visa on arrival to visitors holding an eligible Australian visa for the duration of the tournament.

Australian citizens or permanent residents do not usually require a visa for travel to New Zealand, unless they have a significant character issue. If you travel to New Zealand on a valid passport, you will normally be granted a resident visa at the airport to stay in New Zealand.
