There are more than 100 different tourist attractions in New Zealand. With booming business and trade, it is likely that many people, at some point, may need to find a telephone number in New Zealand. Find a telephone number in New Zealand by starting your search online.

Step 1

Use the New Zealand Residential and Business Directory website. It is located at yellow.co.nz/whitepages/. Enter the name of the person or business and hit your "Enter" key. Choose the "City, town or suburb" link, if you do not know the person's name or business. An alphabetized list of New Zealand areas will appear.

Step 2

Go to the American Chamber of Commerce's (AMCHAM) website by logging onto amcham.co.nz/. Look at the top of the web page and click on "Links." Wait for a series of agency names to appear. Click on one of those links. Read the phone number (some web pages show numbers automatically at the top, right of the screen) on the page. Look for icons or links labeled "Contact" or "Contact Us." There will be residential, business and government telephone numbers for many different areas in New Zealand.

Step 3

Go to the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade web page and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. Read the contact number and call it. Opt for the contact e-mail address if you cannot afford to call a telephone number overseas. Representatives at either resource may be able to give you additional help finding a telephone number in New Zealand. Ask for club, bank or business directories. The site is mfat.govt.nz/index.php.
