From 1 October 2019 you might need a NZeTA to travel to New Zealand [fr]
From 1 October 2019, you might need a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority to travel to New Zealand.
From 1 October 2019, visitors from visa-waiver countries must request a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) before travelling to New Zealand. If you will be travelling from one of these countries on or after 1 October, please request your NZeTA below:
- To enter New Zealand with either a visa or NZeTA you will need to have a return ticket, or a ticket to another destination you’re allowed to enter
- You may need an NZeTA even if you haven’t needed a visa or other travel authority to come to New Zealand in the past
- The NZeTA allows Immigration New Zealand to carry out passenger screening in advance of travel. This means you won’t be allowed to board your aircraft without the required valid travel documents (visa or NZeTA)
- Your NZeTA is valid for two years, and once you have it you can use it as often as you like
The New Zealand Government may also require you to pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL).
The IVL costs NZ$35 per person and is processed and payable when you apply for your visa or NZeTA. You will not be charged for the IVL if you are travelling on a New Zealand, Australia or Pacific Island (excluding Noumea and Tahiti) passport.
Visiting New Zealand
The NZeTA is only available to those visiting New Zealand for up to three months. If you’d like to stay longer, you can apply for a visa from New Zealand Immigration.
