Filipino citizens who plan to go on vacation to New Zealand need to apply for a visa. However, there's a chance in the future that you could easily apply for this visa online. This is because as a Filipino, you will be able to use iVisa and apply online for your visa.

However, nowadays you have to apply for your visa going to an Embassy. But we recommend you to keep visiting our website since there's a high chance of updating an e-Visa to New Zealand for Philippines citizens.

Aside from the process to get a visa, planning a trip can be quite tricky, especially with hotel registrations or any accommodations in general. That's why we recommend you to sign up with Bidroom, a special membership-based booking hotel platform that offers valuable discounts in your favorite hotels. And if you apply for your visa with iVisa, you can use the iVisaFree coupon code, which will offer you an annual free membership if you register before the 1st of March 2020.

What are the general requirements to get a visa?

The application process with iVisa may be simpler, but you still need to meet some requirements, which can also work for a consular visa. Even so, the list of things you need to provide is short and accessible. Here is what you need:

  • Passport – Filipinos who want to apply online need to have a valid passport. However, you need to make sure that the document is valid for at least another 3 months from your date of departure from New Zealand.

  • Digital photo – the picture needs to be as recent as possible and meet all the other guidelines for a passport photo.

  • Means of payment – iVisa requires that you make the payment during the application process. You can do that using a credit or a debit card, but you can also pay using PayPal, Alipay, or WeChat.

  • Email address – iVisa will send you the visa via email in PDF format. Do not forget to print a few copies so that you have a spare or two.

  • Proof of financial means – Once you arrive in New Zealand, you need to prove that you can support yourself during your trip. A bank account statement should be more than enough.

  • Return flight ticket – when you arrive at the airport, you may be asked 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 financial means to purchase one.

Moreover, if you have been convicted of a felony and served time in a prison, you need to disclose that information when you land. Special procedures may apply.

How is the application form?

The application form on iVisa’s website is simple. You will be done before you know it, and if you have any questions regarding the process, iVisa has an excellent support service that is free of charge and available 24/7.

There are three steps you need to complete:

  1. The first one regards your personal information such as name, address, passport info, and so on. At the same time, you need to select a processing time, a choice that determines the cost of your New Zealand visa.

  2. Step number two is about payment and revision. We got the payment covered above, but as for the revision, you should pay close attention to what you provided in step one. That is because any discrepancies between your ID card/passport and the visa can invalidate your application. Double-check the spelling and accuracy before you move on to step three.

  3. The last step is about other requirements you might need to upload. iVisa will ask you to provide some documents, but this phase is not the same for every applicant. It depends on your personal circumstances. When you are done, just hit the submit button.
