The New Zealand Government has introduced a new visa policy for Finland and Lithuania citizens. It will allow these two countries to issue a single visa that will be valid for entry into New Zealand for up to three months, with the option of extending.
New Zealand Visa for Finland Citizens
If you are a citizen of Finland, and you’re also a resident of New Zealand, then you may be eligible for a visa to visit New Zealand. NEW ZEALAND VISA FOR FINLAND CITIZENS
You don’t need a visa if you’re a tourist, business visitor, or student. However, if you want to stay longer than three months, you will need to apply for a temporary resident visa.
To apply for a visa to visit New Zealand, you’ll first need to obtain an application form from the nearest Australian embassy or consular office. You can download the form from the website of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Once you have completed the form, you must bring it with your passport photo and other required documents to your local immigration office. There is no fee for applying for a visa to visit New Zealand.
What is a New Zealand Visa?
The visa requirements for citizens of Finland and Lithuania are very similar. Both countries require a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the period of intended stay in New Zealand, a valid visa for your country of residence, and sufficient funds to cover your costs while in New Zealand.
If you are a citizen of Finland or Lithuania, you can apply for a visa online using the eVisitor system. You will need to provide your passport information, as well as your date of birth and citizenship. You will also be required to answer questions about your visit to New Zealand, such as whether you intend to stay for more than 90 days, work in New Zealand, or study in New Zealand.

Once you have completed the online application process, you will be sent an email notification confirming that your application has been received. You will then need to provide additional documentation (such as proof of financial support) if requested by Immigration NZ. If your application is successful, Immigration NZ will send you an email confirmation with further instructions on how to collect your visa from the nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate.
Finland Visa Requirements and Application Process
Finland is a Schengen member country and visa-free travel is allowed for all Schengen members. Citizens of Lithuania are also eligible for a visa on arrival in Finland if they have a valid passport and an onward ticket to continue their journey.
To apply for a Finnish visa, you will need to provide your original passport with at least six months remaining validity, a valid visa for your destination country, and proof of financial means covering at least €60 per day during your stay in Finland. You will also need to submit an application form, a photocopy of your passport pages, and two photos taken within the last six months. The application process can take up to four weeks to complete.
If you are travelling as part of a tour group, it is important to note that the Finnish authorities may require documentation from the tour operator verifying that all participants in the group are registered visitors.
Lithuania Visa Requirements and Application Process
When traveling to Lithuania, it is important to be aware of the visa requirements and application process.
Lithuania is a member of the European Union (EU) and has a visa waiver agreement with the United States, which allows visa-free entry for citizens of most countries. To qualify for a visa waiver, your passport must have at least six months validity from the date of your planned stay in Lithuania.
To apply for a Lithuanian visa, you must submit an online application form and pay the applicable fees. The online application can be found at http://www.vfsglobal.lt/en/visa/. The maximum duration of stay in Lithuania for tourist purposes is 30 days. Once you have submitted your online application, you will receive a confirmation email containing further instructions on how to collect your visa from Lithuanian diplomatic missions abroad or from the Lithuanian immigration office in Vilnius.
Please note that if you are not travelling as part of a group or as part of an organized tour, you will need to obtain a travel insurance policy before applying for your visa. This is because visas are not issued on arrival in Lithuania and there is no consular support available should something go wrong while you are in Lithuania.
If you hold dual citizenship with Finland or any other country that participates in the Schengen Agreement, you do not need to apply for separate visas for each country visited – your valid Finnish or EU passport will cover all
