    Default Passport valid for 3 years. new one?

    Hi all,

    Just a quick question. My South African passport is only valid for 3 years until 2018. I am planning to be in NZ in June 2015.

    Should I get a new passport before I leave? Or will 3 years be enough if I want to apply for PR?

    No need for a new one yet.

    By the way, you're applying for Residence. PR is a different visa that you can only qualify for if you've been living in NZ as a Resident for a minimum of two years.

    Thanks JandM,

    I do understand the residency application, but eventually it will be for PR after we are there for 2 years. That is the long term goal.
