The U.S. Embassy in New Zealand issues visas for those wishing to visit the USA. Please see their website for information and applications before you go. Due to a variety of procedural factors, U.S. Consulates are unable to guarantee the issuance of a U.S. visa before a fixed travel date. You should never pay for travel arrangements before you have a visa in your possession. The U.S. Consulate General accepts no responsibility if you do so. For more information please click here.
The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business (visitor [B] visa purposes only) for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.
