Foreign Investment in New Zealand

Expert advice for those intending to invest in New Zealand

New Zealand has overseas investment controls that require overseas persons and entities to obtain approval before they can invest in certain types of assets in New Zealand. The main controls on overseas investment are governed by the Overseas Investment Act 2005 and the Overseas Investment Regulations 2005.

If you intend to invest in New Zealand, you'll require expert legal advice. Contact us as early as possible for advice on controls regulating your proposed area of investment.

For further information on the Overseas Investment process see our section on Overseas Investment Office process.
