Hi Amrothepharaoh
You say you have a tank?
To get an NZ permit you need to set up an outdoor enclosure made to the specs provided on the link.
Once you have made contact with your local DOC officer and they check out you enclosure it is only a couple of weeks before you receive your permit.
the Gecko you desire are common and not hard to obtain from other members of the society.

Thankyou very much everyone, i have recieved the Permit form and various info. from the DoC, but just one question, there is a section on the form that is about 'Suppliers details' etc. Could i please know of any potential suppliers of the Naultinus type gecko, that would be extremely helpfull, as i said again, Thankyou guys :D!

unless you are keeping north island species in the south island animals should not be inside.
Having your cages outside is the best way to keep animals happy and healthy.

Permits are already alot harder to get.
