Once in New Zealand you will find it useful to have your documents easily accessible. This will make registering for services in New Zealand much easier. The most commonly needed documents are:
• Your birth certificate
• Your marriage certificate
• Your academic qualifications
• References from previous employers
• Your CV (Curriculum Vitae/Resume)
• Credit references
• An international driver’s licence or permit
Colour photocopies and documents in your own language are usually acceptable, unless you’re applying for residence or making temporary applications under the entrepreneur work visa category, then documents should be originals or certified English translations.
