A NZ citizen who travelled to the Cook Islands on a NZ passport will be eligible for extension of stay of 90 days.
This provision will not apply to NZ citizens who travelled to the Cook Islands on a non-NZ passport.
NZ Retirees Travelling on NZ Passports
NZ Retirees (i.e. who collect the old age pension or the full NZ superannuation in the Cook Islands) and their partners may, on application, be granted a stay of up to 12 months on a visitors permit.
Extension of stay as a Bona-fide Visitor
Bona-fide visitors may extend their stay beyond 31 days by making an application at MFAI. Extensions of stay may be granted on application on a monthly basis for up to a maximum stay of 6 months.
Holders of Passports with less than 6 months validity
With the exceptions indicated below, holders of passports that are valid for less than six (6) months beyond the intended period of stay in the Cook Islands must seek authority to travel to the Cook Islands from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Immigration in Rarotonga.
This travel restriction does not apply to Cook Islanders and Permanent Residents of the Cook Islands.
From 30 August 2010, New Zealand (NZ) and Australian passport holders may also travel to the Cook Islands without seeking authority from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration provided their passports are valid for at least seven days beyond their intended period of stay in the Cook Islands.
For Cook Islanders, the personal details in the passport will usually show the place of birth in the Cook Islands. Descendants of Cook Islanders born outside the Cook Islands are issued, upon application, with a "Cook Islander Status" stamp in their passport. For Permanent Residents, their passports are endorsed with a Permanent Resident stamp.
A fee is payable with each application and an application must be made within 5 working days prior to the expiration of the authorised period of stay. The fee is NZ$50.00 each for persons 15 years and older plus a $20 application fee. While children under 15 years of age are exempt from the fee they must be included in a parents or guardians application.
For those eligible for stay beyond three (3) months, the fee is $100 plus an application fee of $20.
Explain the time until which the certificate/document is valid. e.g. Birth Certificate Valid Forever
