One of the best things about iVisa is that it is doing its best to provide an accessible, convenient, and efficient New Zealand visa application process. Some of that efficiency derives from the multiple options you have when it comes to processing time. Unlike many other visa services, iVisa is aware that timeframes can be different for different people. While some have the appropriate amount of time to wait for their visa, other are in a hurry or experience an emergency, which is why they require their visa right away.

For the moment, the New Zealand visa processing time options are not set. That will happen when the visa goes live on iVisa in a little while. In the meantime, we can give you some information on how things usually move.

Basically, when you apply for a New Zealand visa, during the first step of the application form, you will be required to make a choice from the three available processing times. They are as follows:

  • Standard processing time – this is the slowest option you can choose. However, if you plan ahead of time, it should be okay. Most people want this option because it is the cheapest as well. You only have to pay for the visa itself and the lowest service fee for iVisa. So, if you plan beforehand, the Standard processing time should be enough for any applicant.

  • Rush processing time – this option is a little bit faster than the previous one, it is not the fastest, but it usually cuts the waiting time in half. As you can imagine, it is a little bit expensive as well. The cost of the visa remains the same, but since you want your application form to be processed sooner, the service fee goes up by a little bit.

  • Super Rush processing time – this option is the ideal choice for people who are in an emergency or simply have forgotten that they need to apply for a New Zealand visa. Yes, it can happen to the best of us. It is highly likely that this option will give you your visa in about 24 hours. Of course, as the waiting time goes down, the fee goes up. The Super Rush processing time is always the most expensive. Again, the cost of the visa remains the same. Only the service fee is increased.

What you should always keep in mind is that iVisa makes great efforts to provide what you need in the shortest amount of time possible. Not only that we are thinking about your time, but we also want to satisfy all needs, time-wise and budget-wise. We can process your application form as fast as possible, but we also want to give you the possibility of paying as little money on your visa as possible. And that is where the Standard processing time comes in.

The options mentioned above are found on all visa applications on iVisa, so why would New Zealand be any different? Even if we do not have all the details sorted out, make sure to come back in a little while, and we will be able to tell you exactly all about the New Zealand visa processing time.
