    NZ visitors fireams licence - contact

    I'm coming over at the end of the month to go Tahr hunting with a mate - I was too preoccupied sorting out the multitude of forms to leave Australia with fireams and forgot to fill out the online form for the NZ f/arms import and visitors hunting license. I just completed the form online but on the webpage I noticed that it states that you should do this a month before you travel - I fly out in 2 and half weeks.

    I was going to ring whoever the relevant NZ police area are tomorrow to see if they'll consider my application now. I tried to find a contact number , but no luck. Has anyone got the contact details for who I should ring or email?

    Crisis averted......I got an email response saying that it had been approved within an hr - mind you that was after midnight NZ time as well.

    Now that's some service!

    You don't need to complete it before you arrive. It helps, but not needed.

    I just rocked up at the airport with $25

    They knock off at 4, the bell doesnt go until 5 and I suspect they observe POETS day as well........

    How recently was that ?

    I got caught out in October 2015 thinking the same thing because I had made several trips to NZ as a visitor and got a permit at Auckland airport with no advance / online application.

    That was leaving from the US on Air New Zealand and all airlines share the same data on entry / exit regulations.

    Best to check the NZ Police web site for Visitor Firearms Permits.
