Using UK Passport for NZ?
« on: July 06, 2015, 06:07:20 pm »
Hi,

Don't want any advise on how to get PR in NZ, but I was wondering if anyone here has used a British Passport to enter NZ and set themselves up that way? I have a British Passport - I am a South African Citizen, I see there is a "working holiday" visa but not sure if you are allowed to log EOI while on that visa...

Thanks

I don't know if its any different though, you still get a three month visitor visa on either passport and there is no difference when it comes to residence etc as you will still need to apply the same way for everything... As far as I know. I did all my immigration stuff in my SA passport which was a huge mistake now - if it had all been in my British Passport there would be no visas for Australia or UK as its a much better passport to travel on.
