New Zealand is perhaps one of the most unspoiled countries in the world with an abundance of natural beauty. Combine this scenic beauty with a modern lifestyle and access to technology, and New Zealand becomes a truly unique destination in its own right. Proof of this is that almost 3 million people visit it every year. Even if it’s on your travel wish list, a tourist visa is essential to really enjoy what the country has to offer. A valid passport and the right visa are important to a Hassle-free entry to New Zealand. Your passport must be valid for at least three months after the intended date of departure, and you must hold a valid New Zealand visa if applicable.
WHAT IS NZeTA?
Travelers are advised to apply for an NZeTA (New Zealand eTA) online three days prior to travel. This new requirement means that people from visa-exempt countries will not automatically receive a visitor visa upon arrival. From 1 October 2019, people entering New Zealand from a visa waiver country must apply for an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority). The NZeTA can take up to 72 hours to process, so it is important to arrange this in advance.
