British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has arrived in New Zealand on his first official visit.

The former London Mayor is holding talks on trade, foreign policy and worldwide security today and tomorrow and will meet with Prime Minister Bill English and Foreign Minister Gerry Brownlee.

Top of the agenda will be a possible free trade deal, or at least an expanded trade pact, once the United Kingdom negotiates its "Brexit" from the European Union.

The UK High Commission says he will also promote deeper UK-New Zealand engagement on infrastructure planning, funding and delivery in an event with Minister for Infrastructure Steven Joyce and Minister for Transport Simon Bridges.

Mr Johnson will dedicate the United Kingdom War memoral at the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park tomorrow, and visit the Zealandia wildlife sanctuary in the capital on Tuesday.

He will also travel to Kaikoura to thank the community for helping out Britons trapped in the town following last year's natural disaster.
