Passport holders of some countries and territories do not have to apply for a visa before they travel to New Zealand but must hold an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority).
Travel to New Zealand without first applying for a visa — if you are from a visa waiver country, a cruise ship passenger or a permanent resident of Australia.
Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to or from Australia.
Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to another country — if you are from a visa waiver or transit visa waiver country.
Get someone to help you with your NZeTA request — you will need to tell them about your criminal conviction history and whether you are seeking medical treatment in New Zealand.
From 1 October 2019, if you are from a visa waiver country you must hold an NZeTA before you travel.
Allow up to 72 hours for processing, but it could take as little as 10 minutes.
An NZeTA request costs $55.
You pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) at the same time as your NZeTA.
Stay up to 3 Months Per Visit
An NZeTA valid for 2-Years
