    Default Come back to NZ with new passport

    Hello,everyone.
    I just have one question,will be very helpful,if someone can answer,please..
    I have PR and returning residents visa for 2 years(first one).Right now I live in New Zealand.My passport will be expired soon,so I tried to get new one,but could not do that in NZ-I have to go to my country to obtain new passport.PR and returning residents visa are in my "old" passport.As I know I have to transfer somehow PR and RRV to my new passport.We don't have NZ Consulate in my country.
    I would like to ask -if I will fly back to NZ with my new empty passport and old passport with PR and RRV,will I have any problems on the border?
    I think I can bring my new empty passport and old passport with PR and RRV to NZ,and after sent both of them to INZ to transfer my PR and RRV?
    Can I do that?
    If someone had the same situation,please help me to find right answer...
    Thank you.

    I think it would be OK to use your old passport along with your new one. My husband says he has done this previously.

    Let's hope someone else will confirm if this is correct, to put your mind at rest.
