Dr Klugman asked the Minister for Immigration, upon notice:

(1)   Is it a fact that naturalised Australian citizens require a visa to enter New Zealand whilst British born Australians do not.

(2)   Can he say whether this discrimination applies in any other country.

(3)   Will the Government make representations to the New Zealand Government with a view to stopping this discrimination.

Mr Lynch - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No. Neither Australian citizens by birth nor by naturalisation require visas (or passports) to travel from Australia to New Zealand.

However, Australian citizens by naturalisation may on arrival in New Zealand, or subsequently, be asked to confirm their citizenship and it is advisable that they carry appropriate evidence of it

In this regard miniature declaratory certificates of citizenship are available from the Department of Immigration.

(2)   and

(3)   See answer to (1).
