Story: Kiwis overseas

A New Zealand passport, 1964

A New Zealand passport, 1964

This passport belongs to Murray Grant. He left for Britain in 1965, where he married and had two children, and returned to New Zealand in 1979. The wording ‘British Subject and New Zealand Citizen’ appeared on every New Zealand passport until 1973. Over the decades New Zealanders have enjoyed among the easiest access of any nationality into Great Britain.
