To promote tourism in the country, the New Zealand government has introduced this visa. If you do not belong to any of the above categories, and just wish to visit NZ as a tourist for a short period, this visa is designed for you. It can be used to visit NZ for not more than 3 months, perform in a play or a sport without pay, study a single course which is less than 3 months or even if you wish to undergo a medical treatment. You need to carry a valid passport of any country for you to apply and provide proof of solvency and intention. Visa should be granted prior to the entry, although citizens of Australia or a few other countries do not need a visa.
