New Zealand Diplomats issue NEW ZEALAND VISA FOR FINLAND CITIZENS
New Zealand Diplomats are issuing New Zealand visas to citizens of Finland and Lithuania. This is a new addition for 2017, and it reflects the growing ties between the two countries. The diplomats are working to strengthen these ties through tourism, trade, and other forms of cooperation.
Both Finland and Lithuania are small but economically prosperous nations that enjoy strong relationships with their neighbors. Accordingly, they recognize the importance of good relations with New Zealand. The visa program is an important part of this relationship-building effort.
The visas will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Applicants must have valid photo identification and a return ticket from their original country of residence. They must also have sufficient funds to cover their expenses while in New Zealand.
