Frequently Asked Questions

I'm from Sri Lanka, do I have to apply for a visa to enter New Zealand?

Yes, it's important that you apply for a visa if you want to travel to New Zealand. Sadly, iVisa currently doesn't offer the online version of this visa, but we're working hard to offer you this option in the future. You can apply for a consular visa at the moment.

How long can I stay in New Zealand if I'm from Sri Lanka?

If you're from Sri Lanka, you can stay in New Zealand for 90 days Per Entry

What documents do I need to apply?

The New Zealand ETA requirements for the citizens of Sri Lanka are the same as for everyone else. What you need to know is that while iVisa handles the most difficult parts of the process, you still need to provide some information and some documents so that they can get the process started. Here is a list of what you need:

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

  • Digital photo – this 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 through an e-mail in PDF format. Do not forget to print a few copies before traveling.

  • 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're in transit). In case you do not have one, you need to prove that you have the money to buy it.

How long is this e-Visa valid for?

If you're from Sri Lanka, your ETA expires 2 years after issued

What are the processing times and prices?

If you apply for your New Zealand ETA with iVisa, then you have to select one of the following options:

  • Standard processing – with this alternative you can receive your New Zealand ETA in 24 hours, and you have to pay USD 57.00
  • Rush processing – your ETA will be processed in 4 hours, but the total price you have to pay is higher. It is USD 77.00
  • Super Rush processing – with this choice you have to wait 30 minutes for your application to be ready. As you can tell, this is the most expensive alternative. The total price is USD 97.00.

All the service fees charged by iVisa are included in these options. Consider that iVisa does not practice hidden charges or surcharges

How many times can I enter New Zealand?

With iVisa yoou'll receive a Multiple Entry e-Visa.

How can I apply?

You have to fill in the application form to receive your e-Visa. iVisa made it easy so you do not waste time on something too complicated to understand. Plus, if you need any help, the 24/7 support service can be very helpful.

The form has three easy steps to complete:

  1. The first one asks you to enter your personal information, just like any form. However, iVisa asks only for the essentials. It should not take long. Also during step one, you must select a processing time. Just keep in mind that the cost of your New Zealand visa is determined by your selection.

  2. Step two is about payment and revision. You should not underestimate this part. Any mistake, no matter how small and insignificant it may seem, can render your visa invalid. This means you must go through the process again. Just double-check everything before you move on to step three.

  3. The last step is about any extra requirement that you need to upload. Again, do not worry about this part. iVisa lets you know precisely what you need to upload. After this step is complete, you can hit the submit button and you are done.

As you can see, getting a New Zealand visa for the citizens of Sri Lanka is more than accessible. You can apply day or night, from the comfort of your home.

Do I need a New Zealand visa if I'm in the transit lounge?

You'll be asked to have a visa if you're in the transit area. We recommend you to contact the Embassy first in order to avoid any issue before planning your trip.
