Watch out mums and dads, Justin Bieber wants to be someone's boyfriend and he's coming to New Zealand in July.

The pint-sized popstar is heading here on July 19 for a two-day promotional visit in support of his new album, Believe.

Last time the singer was in New Zealand in 2010, thousands of teenage fans flocked to the airport to welcome him. 

Bieber also performed for 500 students at Strathallan High School in Papakura, and bungy-jumped off the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

There is no word yet on whether the Canadian will perform on his whirlwind visit.

His new album is released worldwide on Friday, with the video for the first single, Boyfriend, already having more than 54 million views on YouTube. With 2.7 billion views in total, Bieber is the most watched YouTube artist of all time.

Late last year, Bieber helped raise almost $10,000 for Auckland's Starship Children's Hospital, after it was included in a list of 20 charities worldwide Bieber asked fans to donate to. He later announced he would donate a dollar for every copy of his Christmas album to the charity.
