A .nz domain name registration is realtime and requires no specific additional data outside of the regular contact details for the owner, administrative and technical contact.
Except when a 3rd level equivalent of the domain name already exists, it is mandatory to use the UDAI (auhtcode) of that domain to register the .NZ domain name.
A transfer has to be registered with an authorization code also known as UDAI.
Please note that the UDAI changes automatically upon certain domain operations (e.g. Updates, Transfer)
The UDAI will expire after 30 days.

A change of ownership can be done by replacing the owner contact in the control panel. After saving the changes the change is processed realtime.
A change of contactdetails can be done by updating the associated handles in the control panel. After saving the changes the domainname will be updated realtime.
A delete is realtime. After a delete the domain will be in quarantine status for 30 days. During this period the domain can be reactivated. 5 days after the 30 days it has status pendingDelete and will be deleted after these 5 days.
A domain name can be restored for 30 days after the domain name has been deleted or expired.
If a domain expired and a soft quarantine period applies (see the table below), restore is possible for the duration of the soft quarantine period plus the duration of the 'normal' quarantine period. A restore during the soft quarantine period is without additional costs (only the renewal is charged), while a restore during the normal quarantine period comes with additional costs. Soft quarantine only applies to expired domains; it never applies after sending a 'delete' command to Openprovider.
