Local cast and crews
Our local film crews frequently work under individual contracts on a project basis. Many are non-unionised, self-employed and/or independent contractors. However, on long-term productions they may be treated as employees.

International cast and crews
All your international film crew members will need working visas in New Zealand, unless they’re an Australian permanent resident or citizen. Your New Zealand line producer or production support person can help you manage employment and immigration obligations.

Tourist visas and visa waivers
You can undertake location scouting, business visits or feasibility studies on a tourist visa or, where applicable, under a visa waiver agreement. New Zealand has agreements established with many countries for stays of up to three months.
