Frequently Asked Questions / FAQs

I'm from Nicaragua, do I need to apply for a visa to travel to New Zealand?

Yes, you must obtain a Consular visa to visit New Zealand. Unluckily, we aren't offering an e-Visa at the moment, but we're working arduously to offer you this option soon. You can only apply for a consular visa momentarily.

How long can I stay in New Zealand?

If you're from Nicaragua, you can stay in New Zealand for 90 days Per Entry

What are the requirements?

The first thing to do is to make sure that you have all the requirements for a New Zealand ETA. That should not be difficult, and you may already have some of the items required. iVisa will ask for the following:

  • A valid passport – Nicaraguans who want to apply online must hold this item. Make sure that the passport is valid for at least 3 months from your departure date from New Zealand.

  • Digital passport photo – This photograph has to be the most recent possible and it should follow all the proper guidelines.

  • Payment alternatives – iVisa will ask you to pay the fees while filling in the application form. You can do that using a credit or a debit card, but you can also pay using PayPal.

  • Valid e-mail address – iVisa provides you the ETA via e-mail in PDF format. We strongly recommend you to print a few physical copies.

  • Means of sustenance – As soon as you arrive in New Zealand, you have to prove that you can provide for yourself during your visit. A bank account statement should be more than enough.

  • Return flight ticket – when you arrive at the airport, you may be requested to provide a return flight ticket to your country of origin (or another destination if you're in the International Transit Area). If you don't have this document, then you must prove that you have enough money to buy one.

  • Proof of good behaviour– if you have a criminal history, you also have to disclose it.

What are the processing times and fees?

How much you spend on your New Zealand ETA depends on how fast you want the processing to go. iVisa came up with three options so that you can choose one that suits your needs. They are as follows:

  • Standard processing time – you'll receive your New Zealand ETA in 24 hours. You'll only pay USD $94.74
  • Rush processing – You'll receive your document in 4 hours, but you'll have to pay a bit more, USD $136.74 being precise.
  • Super Rush processing – with this alternative you have to wait 30 minutes for your application to be processed. As you can see, this is the most expensive option. You have to pay USD $183.74.

Remember that the fees charged by iVisa are already included in these prices. iVisa does not practice hidden charges or surcharges

How can I apply?

As soon as you notice that you have everything required for the application process, you can move forward and fill in the application. The online form is short and it should take you about 20 minutes to complete. However, if you have questions, you can contact iVisa’s support service.

What you will notice is that the form consists of three steps:

  1. During the first one, you are invited to give your personal information, as well as some details about your trip and your passport. It is at this point that you have to select a processing time for your application.

  2. During the second step, you need to make the payment and look over your form to make sure that it does not contain mistakes.

  3. Lastly, the third step requires you to upload the supporting documents of your application. When you finish, all you can do is submit your form and let iVisa do its job.

The bottom line is that obtaining a New Zealand ETA for the citizens of Nicaragua is an easy job when you use iVisa as your visa service.

Do I need a New Zealand ETA or Visa if I travel with my kids?
