Explore New Zealand with the Electronic Travel Authority! Apply with iVisa

Currently, travelers wishing to visit New Zealand must apply for the New Zealand ETA. Applying for the New Zealand ETA can be easy if you have the support of an expert, like the ones we have on iVisa.

We make sure that you get your travel document without any problems in the shortest possible time.

The Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) system allows travelers to obtain this document to visit New Zealand through an electronic application process. You can apply at the comfort of your home, computer, or tablet. Forget about visiting a New Zealand embassy or consulate!

Here, you'll find all the info about the New Zealand ETA and how to apply for it.

What is a New Zealand ETA?

The New Zealand Tourist ETA is an Electronic Travel Authorization that grants the right to enter New Zealand multiple times. That means that you can enter and leave this country many times during your permitted travel stay.

This document is a type of visa that needs to be obtained by visa waiver countries, which are the countries that are part of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), created by the United States government.

Citizens from waiver countries can visit the US without a visa and citizens from the US can visit any waiver county without a visa.

UK passport holders also need this travel document to visit New Zealand.

To get the NZeTA you don’t have to make an appointment or present the original documents at the Embassy or any New Zealand consulate.

This travel document helps border agents control travelers' entry into New Zealand.

Remember that you can apply for this electronic visa 100% online! iVisa does all the hard work for you!

Once approved, you will receive your New Zealand ETA via email. You can present this document digitally or printed at New Zealand's border. However, iVisa recommends downloading all your travel documents to your cell phone.
