have a read of this

http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...onvictions.htm

looks like you will probably be ok or at the most have to do a character waiver.

"How will a character waiver be considered?
Immigration officers may take into account the surrounding circumstances of the application to decide whether a character waiver should be granted or not. The circumstances would include but not be limited to:
the seriousness of the offence, and
whether there is more than one offence from one or more events, and
how long ago the relevant event occurred"

You will probably need a character waiver, as previously posted. Normally if you have kept yourself out of trouble for many years, they will look at it favourably, its normally only if the conviction is recent that you may have a problem. Good luck.
