Thanx for the info on firearm license.
I intend to visit NZ maybe 7 or 8 weeks early 2010(March-April) and I'm planning to bring my personal rifle. I think I will fill paperwork and fax it to NZ before arriving. Is it better?
Thanx again !

Not for private land,you do need a hunting permit from DOC to hunt on public land which is free and there is no test.

You just get one at the local DoC office when you're here. Quick and painless.
  

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Do you mean buying things in New Zealand with Canadian/US dollars??

You need New Zealand dollars Smiley Bring Canadian dollars and have them changed at airport or bank once here.

Don't want to get you advice on your money,but way not just put everything on credit card,i carry very little cash when overseas Huh

Here is some current info from MFAT for NZ hunters looking to hunt overseas. Check out the MFAT website or contact them direct before you plan to travel to make sure the below is still valid and applies to your specific firearm and intended usage.



Firearm and Ammunition Permit Guidelines
All exports of firearms and ammunition require a permit.
Private Exports
However there is a general consent in place in respect of private exports as follows:
Private persons may export up to five sporting rifles and/or shotguns (this approval does not cover semi-automatic or automatic firearms and all pistols and revolvers) without a permit from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in the following circumstances:
The export is not to the Pacific Islands or East Timor - all exports of firearms to the Pacific Islands and East Timor require a permit;
Persons taking their own sporting firearms overseas on a hunting holiday; or
Competitors in international shooting contests taking competition sporting firearms overseas for their own use; or
Tourists returning overseas with firearms and/or parts of firearms they purchased in New Zealand.  The export must be for personal use and not for commercial purposes; or
Persons returning overseas after being in New Zealand on a hunting holiday with firearms and/or parts that they imported into New Zealand and for which they hold an import permit issued by the New Zealand Police; or
Persons returning overseas after competing in a national or international shooting competition in New Zealand with firearms and/or parts that they imported into New Zealand and for which they hold an import permit issued by the New Zealand Police; or
Firearms or parts of firearms manufactured before 1890, or specially designed components for them.
Persons exporting firearms covered by the general consent may export up to 5 kg of ammunition. The ammunition must accompany the firearms. This approval does not permit the export of ammunition on its own.

Don't just land at the airport without appropriate permits.  Check out Top Predators links on the previous page to some of the States requirements.
