Less than 6 month validity on a NZ passport

edited April 2016 in - New Zealand
I am a New Zealand citizen planning to travel from India to NZ via a few days stopover in Australia on the way home. My passport validity will be only 4 months at this stage - is it OK for me to stopover in Australia on the way?? Please can someone advise me.


  • For super easy questions like this is much better to simply go direct to the source:

    As you'll see it plainly states, "... Australia requires that your passport must be valid only for the period of your intended travel in and out of Australia. There is no requirement for your passport to be valid for six months after your travel..."

    Have a good trip.
