Visa for Australian pr with indian passport
 
Hi,

I have been living in Sydney for a year and half with pr visa and indian passport.

My company has asked me to go to Wellington for a business trip.

I wanted to know if I need to get a visa for this, so I called the nz embassy in Sydney and asked they said it was not required. I am not sure if my understanding is correct or I asked the question incorrectly.

Thanks for the clarification

Considering Australian Permanent Residents can get New Zealand PR by arriving in the country, a work trip shouldn't be an issue.

From the immigration website:


You do not need a work visa to work in New Zealand if you are:

a New Zealand citizen or you hold a New Zealand residence class visa, or
an Australian citizen, or the holder of a current Australian permanent residence visa including a current Australian resident return visa. (If there are conditions on your residence visa/resident return visa, then you will require a work visa.)

Do I need to apply for a Business Visitor Visa?

You do not need to apply for a Business Visitor Visa prior to travel, if:
1.You have not already exceeded the maximum stay as a Business Visitor of three months in a calendar year (looking at the 12 months immediately before your upcoming travel to NZ); and
2.You are a Citizen of one of the countries listed on our Visa Waiver list.

You will still need to meet the requirements for Visitors from Visa Waiver countries.
http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...quickcheck.htm Gives you a quick check on visitors.

You should be issued a residence class visa on arrival in NZ. It does however mention that the rules are different if you are a temporary resident in Australia
