United States of America: Changes to entry requirements

President Trump issued a Presidential Proclamation on 24 September 2017. The Proclamation extends travel restrictions to certain citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Somalia. This Proclamation comes into effect on 18 October 2017 and supersedes the previous ban, issued on 6 March 2017.

The Presidential Proclamation does not restrict the travel of New Zealand dual nationals, so long as they travel on their New Zealand passport and possess a valid United States visa. For the latest information please check the websites of the US State Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

We encourage all New Zealanders who require advice on entry into the United States to contact the United States Embassy or Consulate in New Zealand.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is unable to advise on the entry requirements of other countries.
