If your overseas driver licence is in a language other than English, you will need to have it translated by an NZTA-approved translator to be legally able to drive on New Zealand’s roads.
Eurolinguist Translation Solutions is an authorised translation service provider for NZTA, providing translations of driver licences from all French, Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. Using this translation, you will be able to drive on your overseas licence for a period of 12 months.
This 12-month period begins all over again even if you leave and re-enter the country, however if you stay in New Zealand for more than 12 consecutive months you will need to convert your licence to a New Zealand licence. You will also be able to use the same translation to apply for licence conversion. For more information on driving in New Zealand using an overseas licence, click here.
Official Documents for Immigration New Zealand
No matter which visa you are applying for, I can provide you with the certified translations you need to submit your application. The most common documents clients request to be translated for immigration purposes are:
-Criminal record certificates
-Documents proving a stable relationship (such as bank records, travel bookings, proof of address, joint purchases, support letters from friends and family, and more).
Depending on the type and purpose of each document, it may be possible to carry out a selective translation of certain documents, rather than a full translation. To find out which documents are required for your application, please visit the website of Immigration New Zealand.
