New Zealand is one of the few countries that has almost as many visitors. Every year nearly four million travelers go down to South Pacific heaven, and whatever they are looking for, they tend to find it. New Zealand is a “big five” for adventure seekers, wine enthusiasts, beach lovers, and food lovers. Plus, they have cute birds.
For a country that is so tied to nature, natural beauty, and conservation, millions of travelers take their toll. In an effort to make tourists directly contribute to replenish the resources they have, the country has officially launched a new ETA form that you must fill out and pay before boarding the plane. It’s basically like a visa, but people get angry if you say visa. This is all you need to know …
From October 1, 2019 …
If you travel to New Zealand at any time after October 1, 2019, you will need an actual visa, or ETA if you are from a “visa waiver country”. Basically, if you need a visa before this date, you still need it. If not, and can get on a plane, such as citizens from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore, Germany, and many other countries, you must now complete the ETA before doing so and paying for it too.
ETA fees for New Zealand
The cost of entering New Zealand on ETA is $ 9NZD if you use the New Zealand tourism mobile application, or $ 12NZD online with your browser. You will also pay IVL fees at the same time, which includes tourism infrastructure for New Zealand, which is $ 35NZD. All in, which reaches around £ 23 or $ 30USD. This is the full detail. ETA is electronic, so there will be no problem, and as long as your passport remains the same, it will be valid for two years which allows multiple visits.
When to Apply for NZ ETA
Just like ESTA in the US, or the equivalent of a new Europe, this “visa” is in everything except the name requires up to 72 hours of processing. If you land on October 1, you want to register before September 28, only to be safe. Most ETAs must be approved within a few hours, but you will not be able to get on a plane before you have approval. It should also be noted that even if you have ETA, you must be able to show tickets not only to arrive, but also to leave New Zealand
