Although we are an apolitical movement, with the upcoming September 20th elections we have written to NZ political party leaders and asked them to inform us of their parties position on reinstating 10-year NZ Passports.
Please note that this is general information only, it is certainly not our intent to tell you who to vote for - we will leave that important decision to you.
Today we share the National Party position on reinstating 10-year passports to NZ citizens:
Despite pressure from senior National Party members who are also involved in the being back 10-year passports campaign National chose not to respond, instead passing our request on to Mr Dunne (Internal Affairs Minister) of United Future to respond, his response to us, and also by default the position of United Future Party is in the letter below.
Expatriate New Zealand citizens who have visited New Zealand in the past 3 years are also eligible to vote, online, please follow the instructions at the bottom of the page here: http://www.nzten.com/
We expect to hear the Government's official response to the matter of reinstating 10-year passports in the last week of August.
