NZ PM dodges question on simplifying laws for Samoans to travel to NZ


The movement of diplomats and politicians, in particular, should be easier into New Zealand and they are working on making that movement much simpler for Samoan passport holders to enter New Zealand. 

This is according to New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern when asked during the press conference on Tuesday given the treary has been in place for 60 years and what the government can do to make it easier for Samoans to travel to New Zealand without immigration restrictions. 

Arden was in Samoa for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Treary signed 60 years by Samoa and New Zealand. 

The NZ PM, did not give a direct response but rather commented they are working together under some of the auspices of the Treaty of Friendship.
