Hello all- This is my first post, after soaking in some fine information found here I have what may seem like a dumb question but will give me "peace" of mind.
I recently spent a year in Australia, overstayed my visa, and upon leaving was given a 3 year ban, (with 2 years left on the ban).
I would like to go to New Zealand for a month or so and I do realise although the 2 countries are not connected, they are close politically and geographically.
Will my ban from Australia come into play at all upon my entry into NZ. I don't know if the countries "share" information and I realise my ban has nothing to do with NZ, I am just kind of paranoid that my arrival may raise a flag, so to speak.
My apologies if this is an "off" topic.
Thanks very much for any information, ED-
