Entry permission

107 Effect of entry permission or refusal of entry permission


A person granted entry permission to New Zealand may enter New Zealand.


The grant of entry permission has no effect unless the person also holds a visa.


Entry permission is granted by the Minister or an immigration officer.


The effect of a refusal to grant a person entry permission to New Zealand is that—


any visa the person holds is cancelled; and


if the person has arrived in New Zealand, the person is liable for turnaround.
