Get ready to cry, scream and faint tweens - Justin Bieber is coming back to New Zealand.

The worldwide Canadian phenomenon will land in New Zealand on July 18 for a three-day promotional visit.

Details of his trip are yet to be confirmed, but the Baby singer tweeted that he was looking forward to doing another bungy jump.

Bieber announced the visit on Twitter, saying: "...and oh yeah I'm going to New Zealand on July 19th!! #Bungee."

The 18-year-old was last here in April, 2010, when he was mobbed by Kiwi fans everywhere he went, including TV3 studios and a performance for Strathallan School students in Papakura.

At one point during his stay, he bungy jumped from Auckland's Harbour Bridge with his mother.

The trip wasn't without controversy - Bieber reportedly stormed off the set of TV show What Now after being sprayed in L&P, and had his hat stolen and held for ransom during a melee at Auckland International Airport.

Bieber is currently in the middle of worldwide promo duties for his latest album, Believe.

He recently caused chaos in Oslo, Norway, where almost 50 fans were injured after a daytime performance.

Bieber is the most viewed YouTube artist of all time with 2.7 billion views. He has more than 22 million Twitter followers, 43 million Facebook followers, and has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.
