The eTA New Zealand Visa (NZeTA) (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authorisation) is an electronic travel authorization launched in July 2019 by the Immigration Agency of the Government of New Zealand.
By October 2019, nationals of all 60 visa-free countries, as well as cruise passengers, must get an eTA New Zealand Visa (NZeTA). Before traveling to New Zealand, all airline and cruise line crew must have a Crew eTA New Zealand Visa (NZeTA) (NZ).
The eTA New Zealand Visa (NZeTA) is valid for two years and allows for multiple visits. Using this New Zealand visa application form, applicants can apply for NZ eTA from their mobile, tablet, PC, or computer and receive it in their email inbox.
It is a simple process that asks you to fill out an online New Zealand eTA application form, which can take as little as five (5) minutes to complete. This is a purely online transaction. NZeTA can be purchased using a debit/credit card or using PayPal. eTA New Zealand eTA (NZeTA) is issued within 48-72 hours of the application form being successfully completed and the fee being paid online by the applicant.
Prior to October 1st, 2019, a number of nationalities may visit New Zealand without acquiring a visa for up to 90 days. Citizens of the United Kingdom can stay for up to six months, and Australians are granted resident status upon arrival.
However, beginning October 1st, 2019, passport holders from all 60 visa waiver nations must apply for an eTA New Zealand Visa before visiting the country, even if only transiting through New Zealand on their way to another location. The eTA New Zealand Visa is valid for two years in total.
If arriving by cruise ship, regardless of nationality, you can apply for eTA New Zealand eTA. If you arrive by cruise ship, you do not need to be from a Visa Waiver country to obtain a New Zealand eTA.
