Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If I'm from Kenya, should I apply for a visa if I want to travel to New Zealand?

Yes, you need a visa if you're Kenyan and you want to take a journey to New Zealand. You'll be able to enter this country with an ETA soon, but you can only obtain a Consular Tourist Visa by now.

As we stated above, iVisa is not issuing the New Zealand ETA yet, but you can check your qualification for other e-Visas on this website.

It's quite simple to use the iVisa's Visa Checker. You just have to write down your nationality and the country of destination in the drag-down fields. This way, you'll get the information quickly.

By using this tool you'll confirm if you're able to apply for an eVisa to that country or if you don't even need a visa. And in case you have to apply for a Consular Tourist Visa, you'll be advised as well.

How long can I stay in New Zealand if I'm a citizen of Kenya?

You can stay in New Zealand for 90 days Per Entry if you're from Kenya.

What are the requirements?

To be able to apply for a New Zealand ETA online, you need to make sure that you meet all the requirements. However, you only need a few documents and some information. Here is what you must provide:

  • Passport – all applicants who need a New Zealand ETA should have a valid passport that maintains its valid status for at least another 3 months after their departure from New Zealand.

  • Digital passport photo – the picture must be recent, and keep in mind that there are other important guidelines that it must follow.

  • Travel itinerary – you need to create a letter that states the activities you want to enjoy in New Zealand, as well as other plans you may have.

  • Proof of accommodation in New Zealand – a hotel booking confirmation or something similar (Airbnb).

  • *List of all periods of employment**.

  • Documents that prove the ties you have with your home country – property contract, family, job, etc.

  • Proof of sustenance – you need to have a piece of evidence to prove that you can provide for yourself while in New Zealand. You can use a bank statement, for example.

  • E-mail address – iVisa sends all documents via e-mail, so it makes sense that you provide a valid e-mail address.

  • Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. Credit and debit cards are okay, but you can use PayPal as well.

What are the processing times and fees?

The price of your New Zealand ETA is determined by how fast you want the document. iVisa gives you three options so that you can choose the most convenient for you:

  • Standard processing – this is the slowest option. Your New Zealand ETA is ready within 24 hours, and it costs USD 57.00.

  • Rush processing – this time, things move a bit faster. Your application is processed within 4 hours, and you are charged USD 77.00.

  • Super Rush processing – if you need your visa ASAP, this option guarantees that you will have it in as little as 30 minutes. The cost is USD 97.00.

How can I apply?

Once you confirm that you have everything from the list above, you are ready to proceed with the online form. It is an easy task, but if you need help, iVisa has an excellent customer support service that is at your disposal anytime.

You will see that the form has three steps:

  1. The first one asks you to provide your personal information, including passport info, and some details regarding your trip. You must also select a processing time for your application, but bear in mind that your decision determines the cost of your ETA.

  2. The second step asks you to handle the payment and also that you review your application. It is one of the most important things to do since your form shouldn't have any mistakes. Otherwise, you will receive an invalid visa, and in that case, you'll have to repeat the process.

  3. The last step requires you to upload your application’s supporting documents. When you are done, just click on the submit button, and iVisa will do its job.

As you can see, getting a New Zealand ETA is not a difficult thing to do if you use iVisa.
