MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS WELLINGTON

Wellington, 3 March 1949

Sir,

I have the honour to refer to various discussions concerning arrangements to permit of freedom of travel between our two countries and to suggest than an agreement in the following terms be concluded for the mutual abolition of visas for travel between New Zealand and the Netherlands: --

  • “(1) Netherlands nationals shall be free to travel to New Zealand by any route without the necessity of obtaining a visa in advance provided they are furnished with valid Netherlands passports.

  • “(2) New Zealand citizens shall be free to travel to the Netherlands by any route without the necessity of obtaining a visa in advance provided they are furnished with valid New Zealand passports.

  • “(3) It is understood that the waiver of the visa requirement does not exempt Netherlands nationals and New Zealand citizens travelling respectively to New Zealand and to the Netherlands from the necessity of complying with the New Zealand and the Netherlands laws and regulations concerning the entry, residence (temporary or permanent) and employment or occupation of foreigners, and that travellers who are unable to satisfy the Immigration authorities that they comply with these laws and regulations are liable to be refused leave to enter or land.

  • “(4) As regards travel by Netherlands nationals to New Zealand Island Territories and the trust Territory of Western Samoa, visas will not be required but it will be necessary for travellers to comply with the laws and regulations concerning the entry, residence (temporary or permanent) and employment or occupation of foreigners in the Island Territories or the Trust Territory of Western Samoa as the case may be. Travellers who are unable to satisfy the Immigration authorities that they comply with these regulations are liable to be refused leave to enter or land.

  • “(5) As regards travel to Netherlands overseas territories, it is understood that visas will continue to be required.”

  • 2. If the Netherlands Government are prepared to accept the foregoing provisions, I have the honour to suggest that the present note, and your reply in similar terms, should be regarded as placing on record the agreement between the two Governments, which will take effect on 1 April 1949.

I have, &c.,

P. FRASER,

Minister of External Affairs
