Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I'm from Lebanon, do I need a visa to enter New Zealand?

Yes, if you're Lebanese then you must apply for a Consular Tourist Visa, at least for the moment, but you'll be able to apply online for an ETA shortly!

Please, keep in mind that iVisa does not grant the New Zealand ETA yet. Nevertheless, you can verify if you're able to get other e-Visas on this website.

It's quite uncomplicated to use the visa checker, you only have to write down your nationality and the nation you want to visit in the drop-down fields on the menu. After that, you'll know the information quick.

If you have to apply for a consular visa, you'll know it at once, but if you need an eVisa (which is easier to get than a consular one) you'll be redirected to the application page. You'll also be notified if you don't need a visa at all.

How long is the New Zealand ETA valid for?

If you're from Lebanon, you can have the ETA for 2 years after issued.

What are the requirements for Lebanese?

You cannot apply for a New Zealand ETA if you cannot fulfill all the requirements. Lucky for you, the list is not very long, and you may have some of the required items already. Here is what you need:

  • Passport – all applicants who need a New Zealand visa need to get a valid passport that keeps its valid status for at least another 3 months after their departure from New Zealand.

  • Digital passport photo – the picture must have been taken recently, and keep in mind that there are other guidelines the photo must follow.

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

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

  • List of all periods of employment.

  • Documents that prove the bonds you have with your home country – for instance, property, family, job, etc.

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

  • Valid e-mail address – iVisa sends all documents via e-mail, so it makes sense that you provide an address you have access to.

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

What are the processing times and fees?

Here is what you can choose from:

  • 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, the process moves 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 as fast as possible, this option guarantees that you will have it in only 30 minutes. The cost is USD 97.00.

Needless to say, iVisa guarantees an easy application process for the New Zealand ETA for the citizens of Lebanon. The electronic visa is valid for 2 years after issued and you can use it to stay in New Zealand for no more than 90 days Per Entry.

How can I apply for the ETA?

Once you confirm that you have all the requirements, you can fill in the application form. It should take you only 20 minutes to complete, but if you need help, iVisa’s customer support service is accessible 24/7 and it is free of charge.

The application form has three steps:

  1. The first step asks you to grant your personal information such as name, address, date of birth, and so on. Passport information and travel info are necessary as well. Also, you must choose a processing time for your application. Just keep in mind that your choice determines the cost of your New Zealand ETA.

  2. The second one of the form asks you to insert the payment details and review your form. You need to search and correct possible inaccuracies. If you make a typo, your visa will be invalid. Avoid that by carefully reading your application before moving on.

  3. The third and last step requires you to upload the documents that support your application. After you finish this part, just click on the submit button, and iVisa will take it from there.

Do I need a New Zealand Visa if I'm just transiting through the country?

Yes, you'll require a visa for this situation as well. That's why we firmly recommend contacting the embassy to obtain better information about this topic.
