There are no plans in place just yet for US President Barack Obama to visit New Zealand, the Government says.

Fairfax Media reported today that it was possible Mr Obama could visit New Zealand after one of his upcoming trips to Asia - either in May or September.

But Government Duty Minister Michael Woodhouse says while Mr Obama is "always welcome to visit", there aren't any plans in place for that to happen "at this stage".
