23-year-old Amir will be travelling with the Pakistan team to play in one-day and Twenty20 series against.
     
Amir completed a five-year ban from international cricket in September and served six months of a three-year prison sentence for taking bribes to bowl no balls at specified moments in a Test match against England at Lord's in 2010.
     
Reports said New Zealand immigration officials considered withholding Amir's visa on character grounds, but decided to allow him to enter the country, taking into account his completed suspension and support for him from the Pakistan and New Zealand cricket boards.
     
Picked in the squad last week for the New Zealand tour despite some resentment by fellow players, Amir's comeback to international cricket was dependent on him getting a visa.
     
Amir last appeared for the national team in a Test against England at Lord's in August 2010 before the scandal came to the fore. Amir and two other players, captain Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif were suspended by the International Cricket Council after the Test for taking money to bowl predetermined no-balls in a spot-fixing scam.
