My Fiancé (US citizen) will be traveling to Australia on his PMV300 from the US via NZ. From what we understand because he has a visa to come to Australia he doesn't need any kind of transit visa for NZ but we just want to confirm that we're understanding this correctly if anyone has any insight? Thanks

If he is not leaving the airport, he won’t need a visa for NZ. If he has a stopover, he probably will, depending on the requirements for US citizens.

A temporary Australian visa does not allow you to travel to NZ. Australian PR does

Thank you, his stop in NZ is only 3.5 hours so he won't be leaving the airport.

I am an Australian registered migration agent and not qualified to advise on NZ visa requirements, so have a look here to make sure:

Transiting through New Zealand or Australia
If you are travelling to New Zealand via an Australian airport, you may also need an Australian visa - consult your travel agent or airline if you are unsure.

Transit visas will also be needed for all people travelling via New Zealand, unless they are specifically exempted by immigration policy.

Transit Visa
If you'll be passing through New Zealand as a transit passenger, you'll need to apply for a Transit Visa before you travel, unless you're travelling to Australia, or are from a visa waiver country or transit visa waiver country, and you meet our requirements for good character.
