Frequently asked questions // FAQs

As a Kuwaiti citizen, can I apply for a New Zealand ETA?

How long can I stay in New Zealand with an ETA?

You can stay in New Zealand for 90 days Per Entry.

What are the requirements for a New Zealand ETA?

As you can imagine, you need to meet some requirements to be able to apply for a New Zealand visa. We recommend that you cross everything off the list before you fill in the application form. It should make the process smoother. Here is what iVisa needs from you:

  • Valid passport – when you apply online, you need to have a passport. Furthermore, you need to make sure that the passport is valid for at least another 3 months from the departure date from New Zealand.

  • Digital photo – the photo needs to be as recent as possible and meet all the other guidelines for a passport photo. For example, it needs to be taken against a white background.

  • Means of payment – iVisa asks you to make the payment while you complete the steps of the application form. You can do that using a credit or a debit card, but you can also pay using PayPal.

  • E-mail address – iVisa sends you the visa via e-mail in PDF format. Do not forget to print a few copies so that you have a couple of spares.

  • Means of sustenance – once you arrive in New Zealand, you need to prove that you can provide for yourself during your trip. A bank account statement should be enough.

  • Return flight ticket – when you arrive at the airport, you may be required to show a return flight ticket to your country of origin (or another destination if you are in transit.) If you do not have one, you need to prove that you have the money to buy it.

What are the processing times and fees?

This will vary according to how soon you need your ETA. iVisa grants you three options:

  • Standard Processing Time: You wait 24 hours as long as you accept to pay USD $94.74.

  • Rush Processing Time: This time, you'll only wait 4 hours and you'll pay 4 hours.

  • Rush Processing Time: With this option, you'll wait 30 minutes, but since it is the fastest one, you'll pay 30 minutes.

How much time do I need to apply?

You can complete your online form in no more than 20 minutes.

How can I apply?

iVisa makes things easier so that you don't have to trouble yourself with cutting through red tape and handling bureaucracy. The primary action you must take is to fill in an application form.

You have three steps you need to complete:

  1. The first one asks for your personal information such as name, address, e-mail, etc. you must also select a processing time at this point, but bear in mind that your choice determines the cost of your New Zealand ETA.

  2. The second step is about payment and revision. You must be very careful while you revise your information because any mal inaccuracy or a spelling mistake can invalidate your visa. Check everything before you move on to the next step.

  3. Last but not least, step number three consists of document upload. iVisa notifies you about everything you need to provide. Once you are done, hit the submit button and the application process is complete.

However, this is hardly a possibility once your ETA is approved, especially if you have all the proper documentation on hand.
