Answer on Do you need a visa for new zealand you have Geneva convention 1951 refugees document issued in Italy?

NZ accepts very few refugees because they almost always have to land in a safe country before they can get to NZ. Thefore they are required to request asylum in the first safe country they reach.

The exception to this is if the government agrees to take a group of refugees from a specific place and usually only for a specific length of time,

The last lot of refugees I recall NZ accepting were from Kosovo in the 1990s. Most of them eventually went back to Europe.
