NEW ZEALAND VISITOR VISA FOR THE CITIZENS OF EL SALVADOR
What is a New Zealand Visitor Visa?
A New Zealand Visitor Visa is an official document issued by the government of New Zealand that allows citizens of El Salvador to enter and stay in New Zealand for up to nine months. The visa is valid for multiple entries into the country, meaning you can leave and re-enter as many times as you like during the validity period.
The visa also allows you to work in New Zealand, provided you have a valid job offer from an employer in the country. However, it does not allow you to stay in the country permanently or apply for permanent residence.
