Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the New Zealand ETA valid for?

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

What are the requirements?

Before you fill in the application form, you need to ensure that you can provide all that is necessary for a successful application process. Lucky for you, the list is not very long, and the items on it are easy to achieve. You will need to provide the following:

  • A Valid Passport – Every foreign citizen who need a New Zealand ETA needs a valid passport that keeps its valid status for at least another 3 months after the flying date.

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

  • Travel itinerary plan – you need to get a letter that states the activities you want to enjoy in New Zealand. You also have to show other plans you may have in the country.

  • Proof of accommodation in New Zealand – a hotel booking confirmation or something similar is a great option.

  • 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 your ETA 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 work, but you can use PayPal too.

What are the processing times and also the fees for the New Zealand ETA?

The price of a New Zealand ETA for the citizens of Lesotho is the same as for any other nationality. But it can be different depending on the processing time you select during the application process. iVisa gives you three options so that you can choose the one that is most convenient for you:

  • Standard processing – this is the slowest option of the three. Your New Zealand ETA is ready within 24 hours, and it costs USD $94.74.

  • Rush processing – this time, the process moves quite faster. Your application is ready within 4 hours, and you have to pay USD $135.74.

  • Super Rush processing – if you need your visa as soon as possible, this option guarantees that you will get it in only 30 minutes. The cost is USD $182.74.

How can I apply online?

There is one other thing you need to do to get your visa, and that is to fill in the application form. It is an easy task, but if you need assistance, iVisa provides customer support 24/7. The service is free of charge.

The application form has three phases:

  1. The first phase wants you to insert your personal information, as well as details about your passport and your trip. This is also the moment when you must select a processing time for your application.

  2. The second phase focuses on payment and revision.

  3. The third phase covers the supporting documents. When you are done with this part, just submit your form, and iVisa will take the rest of the process.

What you need to remember from all this is that iVisa provides a simple application process so that the citizens of Lesotho can easily get a New Zealand ETA. The ETA is valid for 2 years after issued and you can use it for no more than 90 days Per Entry.

Do I need a New Zealand Visa if I'm just in the International Transit Area?

Yes, you'll need a visa for this situation too. That's why we constantly recommend contacting the embassy to receive better information about this topic.
