Report on my recent travel to New Zealand.
Arriving in New Zealand: I flew from LAX to Auckland, using Air New Zealand. Encountered no issues in boarding. Previously, I had no issues with immigration. This time around, the immigration crew didn't know the RTD. So they had to go and check with their supervisor, came back 25min later and they let me in. Funny how people who work 8 hrs everyday as immigration officers, do not know the RTD. I thought these guys are supposed to be experts? Goes to show that in this life, the 'professionals' are often 'amateurs' actually.
The Return: With RTD + GC in hand, landed in Honolulu. No issues, they just let me in. Boarding Air Hawaii in NZ, so issues. The rep. didn't know how to enter my infor in the system, so I was sent to the supervisor. Quick process.
That is my report.
great report how was the process of getting the NZ visa on RTD ? can you apply online or you need to go to the embassy ?
You apply for the Visa online. I had have gone to New Zealand twice in that last 12 months. I haven't had issues with them. You apply online, free of charge. Simple process. But still have to show valid reason for visiting, enough funding.
thanks i just checked online and i don't see the option to apply for a visa with RTD they only ask for nationality
Nationality....you use US National . Passport? You say US. Only where it says 'citizenship' is where you are supposed to use your home country.
alright i see thanks

Hi thanks for the uinformation.i am planning to travel to dubai nd thailand as i cant vist my COP and my parents can come to any of these countries to visit.i surfed online but cant get one answer.can u let me know if these countries accept RTD and if its ok to travel to those countries with my RTD?
Dubai don’t accept RTD but thailand do accept RTD but you will need to apply for a tourist visa from the nearest thai embassy which is easy to get on your RTD
Thanks for the info brother.
And do you think that waiting for a green card is a better option rather than just travelling on RTD
If you really need to travel you don’t need to wait for green card just go ahead and travel with RTD , i traveled twice before getting my green card using my RTD and it was fine
Thanks for the info bro
I just have one more question.do you pay fees for the green card after asylum?
Yes you do pay total fees of $1225 for Green card
You can get a green card for free if your income is low
