The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of New Zealand has recently introduced the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) for citizens of over 60 countries. This eTA allows travelers to enter the country for transit or tourist purposes and its valid for 2 years.
The New Zealand eTA application process is very simple and 100% online. Once the application is submitted and accepted, the applicant will receive a confirmation with a reference number that must be shown to the immigration officers upon arrival. Yes, it’s that simple.
The e-Visa system is an online method of applying for visas from anywhere in the world. Some advantages of this system to the traveler are that visas can be applied for quickly over the internet at any time, from any location. Payment is made online at the time of the application.
