There's a difference between the cost and the total price of a New Zealand ETA. The fist is the one that the Government determines according to your nationality. But the total price depends on how fast you want your document to be ready since you have to pay iVisa's fees. iVisa gives you three options so that you can choose the most convenient for you. They are as follows:

  • Standard processing – By selecting this option, you accept to receive your New Zealand ETA in 24 hours, and you also accept the total price of USD 57.00
  • Rush processing – your ETA will be ready in 4 hours, but the total price is more expensive. You will have to pay USD 77.00 this time.
  • Super Rush processing – With this choice you only have to wait 30 minutes for your ETA. However, this is the most expensive alternative. You have to pay USD 97.00.

Does getting an ETA allows me automatic entry into New Zealand?

The short answer is NO. If you get a New Zealand Tourist eTA, it means that you can get checked by the Immigration Checkpoint so you can enter the country, but it does not offer an automatic right of admission into the Country.

In other words, the last approval is granted by the Immigration Officer.

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

Yes, you'll probably need a visa in this situation as well, so we suggest contacting the embassy to get more detailed information.
