What are the processing times and fees?

There's one aspect you need to consider before applying: the cost of your New Zealand ETA is not the same as the total price. The total price of your New Zealand ETA includes iVisa's services fees. These fees will change according to how soon you want your ETA. iVisa offers you three options:

  • Standard processing – This option will allow you to obtain your New Zealand ETA in 24 hours, if you pay USD $97.49.

  • Rush processing – your ETA will be ready in only 4 hours, but you'll have to pay more. The total price will be USD $128.99.

  • Super Rush processing – By selecting this, you'll only have to wait 30 minutes. However, since this is the most expensive option, you'll pay USD $165.99.

How can I apply?

Now that you know what you need, we will explain to you the process of the application form. Filling it in should not be a difficult task, but if you need some help, iVisa’s customer support is at your disposal 24/7 with no charge.

The online form created by iVisa consists of three simple steps.

  1. The first one covers the general information about the applicant, but it also requires you to select a processing time for your application. Remember that your choice affects the cost of your New Zealand ETA.

  2. The second step of the application form asks you to cover the payment and review your form to correct any possible mistakes.
