How to request an NZeTA
If you need an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority), you need to get it before you travel to New Zealand.
It can take up to 72 hours for approval to come through, so make sure you apply with plenty of time.
There are two official ways to request an NZeTA:
- Complete the form on Immigration New Zealand’s website.
- Use the official app on iPhone or Android. Download links are available on the Immigration New Zealand website.
Beware of unauthorised websites or apps.
Go to immigration.govt.nz/nzeta to request an NZeTA or find a link to the app.
What does an NZeTA cost?
An NZeTA request costs NZ$9 on the official app, or NZ$12 if completed online.
At the same time, you will also be charged NZ$35 for an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL).
The IVL payment helps to protect New Zealand's natural environment and contributes to tourism infrastructure.
Visit immigration.govt.nz/nzeta for more information.
