What is an ETA?

The New Zealand Tourist eTa (NZ Electronic Travel Authority) is an electronic visa waiver that grants the right to enter multiple times to New Zealand. There is no need to make an appointment or present original documents to the Embassy or Consular Office.

How long can Singaporean visitors stay in New Zealand with an ETA?

With the New Zealand ETA you will have a maximum stay of 90 days Per Entry with Multiple Entry to the country.

What are the documents required to apply?

Before filling in an application, you need to make sure that you have everything you need. iVisa does not ask for much, but you still need to provide some information and some documents. Here is what you need:

  • Passport – Singaporeans who 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.

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

  • Means of sustenance – 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.

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

How long is the ETA valid?

You will be able to use your ETA for 2 years after issued.

What are the processing times and prices?

With iVisa, applicants have three available options for the processing time and this will determine the price. The three options are:

  • Standard processing – your application is processed within 24 hours, and the price is USD 57.00 (service fees included).

How does the ETA work?

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of New Zealand has recently introduced the Electronic Travel Authority (eTA) for citizens of over 60 countries. This eTA allows travelers to enter the country for transit or tourist purposes and its valid for 2 years. The New Zealand eTA application process is very simple and 100 % online. Once the application is submitted and accepted, the applicant will receive a confirmation with a reference number that must be shown to the immigration officers upon arrival. Yes, it’s that simple.

The eVisa system is an online method of applying for visas from anywhere in the world. Some advantages of this system to the traveler are that visas can be applied for quickly over the internet at any time, from any location. Payment is made online at the time of the application.
