New Zealand eTA

Electronic Travel Authorization

What is NZeTA?


The NZeTA is a new border security measure that the New Zealand Government has applied as of October 1st, 2019. Some travelers who do not require a visa to travel to New Zealand will now have to obtain a NZeTA before traveling to the country.

The NZeTA is not a visa and does not guarantee entry to New Zealand. Upon arriving in the country, travelers must comply with all entry requirements, for example, owning a ticket for a subsequent trip, etc.

The eTA seeks to reduce the time spent on migration controls and also aims to strengthen border security. While the IVL seeks that travelers contribute directly to the tourism infrastructure they use, as well as help, protect and enhance the natural environment they will enjoy during their stay in New Zealand.

NOTE: To enter New Zealand, a passport must be valid for at least three months from the scheduled departure date. Applicants need a valid passport if they are from one of the 60 eligible countries to apply for eTA New Zealand.
