iVisa | Updated on Nov 02, 2018

The citizens of UK are exempt from getting a visa if they visit New Zealand for less than 6 months. However, if you are a UK national who wants to go to New Zealand for a period of time that exceeds 6 months, you need to apply for a visa. Lucky for you, you can do that online, and iVisa can help you every step of the way.

What are the requirements?

If you apply online with iVisa, you get to enjoy a lot of benefits. One of them is that you do not have to meet too many requirements. In fact, iVisa has a short list you need to check off. Here is what you need to provide:

  • Passport – if you decide to apply online, you 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 photo needs to be as recent as possible and meet all the other guidelines for a passport photo.

  • Means of payment – iVisa asks you 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.

  • 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.

  • Proof of good character – if you have been convicted of a felony or served some time in prison, you need to disclose that information.

New Zealand visa for UK citizens – the application process

The application form created by iVisa is quite simple. You need to complete three easy steps, after which you can submit it. In case you need any help with it, iVisa has a fantastic support service that is available 24/7 and is entirely free of charge.

The first step of the application asks you to fill in your personal information and select a processing time. The first part is simple and should take you about 5 minutes. As for the processing time, you need to keep in mind that your choice establishes the cost of your New Zealand visa. The sooner you want your visa to arrive, the more you have to pay.

The second step consists of revision and payment. You can make the payment using one of the multiple methods mentioned above. The review, on the other hand, is a crucial part of the application. That is because there is no room for error. Any mistake can invalidate your visa, so make sure that you double-check all the information you provide.

The third and last step asks applicants to upload some documents. The number of documents is established on a case-by-case basis, but iVisa lets you know what you need to provide. After you are finished, just submit your application and wait.

As you can see, getting a New Zealand visa for UK citizens could not be simpler. iVisa makes sure of it. The document you receive is valid for 18 months from the issue date, and you can stay in New Zealand for up to 9 months.
