New Zealand[edit]

Pitcairn Islanders are permitted to enter New Zealand without a passport, in which case they are given a certificate of identity at border control allowing them to stay for six weeks as a visitor.[2] If they meet health and character requirements, they can also apply for a residence permit as long as they have been offered employment of at least 30 hours per week in New Zealand.[3]
