Visa waiver country

Jump to last reply


I am originally from India and currently residing in India with a USA passport. I am traveling with my family to NZ for 22 days in April. My wife and two kids (also originally from India) also have USA passports. Since USA is a visa waiver country we do not require visas for visiting NZ. NZ immigration website quotes the following:

People from some countries don't need a visitor visa to enter New Zealand. However, they are still required to provide:

1) travel tickets or evidence of onward travel arrangements, and
2) evidence of funds for maintenance

I have return tickets for 1). For 2) can I show the NZ dollars which I will be carrying (approximately $2,000) along with my credit cards. Or do I also need to show documents like my kid's school reports, employment in India etc. to show ties to India. Or these are not required ?
