Do I need a visa or a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) to enter New Zealand?
Currently travellers from more than 50 countries do not require a visitor’s visa for stays of less than three months - however travellers from a visa waiver country and Australian permanent residents do require an NZeTA.
for a list of visa waiver countries - if you are not from a visa waiver country, you will need to apply for a visitor's visa in order to travel to/through New Zealand.
How do I apply for a New Zealand visa?
For information about the visa application process, please visit the New Zealand Immigration website.
What is an NZeTA?
The New Zealand Government is introducing an Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) from 1st October 2019, which will affect most International travellers to New Zealand – excluding New Zealand and Australian citizens. Both International visitors from a visa waiver country and Australian permanent residents will now be required to obtain an NZeTA before arriving in New Zealand.An application for an NZeTA can be requested through through the NZ immigration website. Once complete, application approval can take up to 72 hours - so visitors to New Zealand will need to ensure they have obtained their NZeTA well in advance of their travel. The cost of obtaining the NZeTA online is NZD $12.
Please visit www.immigration.govt.nz/nzeta
for further information and to obtain an NZeTA.
Please note, it is the policy of the meeting NOT to supply an “invitation letter”. Upon payment of registration fees, each delegate receives a registration confirmation email and receipt of payment.
